user reviews of the Red Cow, Harpenden

please note - reviews on this site are purely the opinion of site visitors, so don't take them too seriously.

As we approached the outskirts of Harpenden, feeling tired after a walk from Luton in the unseasonably hot weather, we were on the look out for a pub. For once, the very first one we came across was ideal. This is a lovely old fashioned place on the outskirts of the town, just off the Lower Luton Road. The building looks to be fairly ancient, with low ceilings and some evidence of timber beams, but seems to have undergone some necessary reconstruction. The low-ceilinged interior is delightful, comfortable and well-kept. Three hand pump ales were on at the time of our visit (Sharp's Doom Bar and Cornish Coaster, plus London Pride) and the Cornish Coaster was excellent. Food also available (mainly various varieties of fish and chips). Very friendly atmosphere and pleasant service.

Incidentally the pub was surprisingly uncrowded for a Saturday night. It would be a real shame if a place like this had to close through lack of business.

Quaint looking pub on the North Eastern fringes of Harpenden/Batford. Have drove up and down the Lower Luton Road numerous times but nver knew this pub was just off it. Friendly enough maroon walled, low ceiling kind of place. Had two ales on Pride and Cornish Coaster. The Cornish Coaster was okay if nothing special. Still somewhere that is mainly pub rather than food orientated.

Great untouched british pub, great landlord and landlady, Ray and Sue are fab, very friendly customers who always make everyone feel welcome unlike other pubs in Harpenden where they look at you as if you belong under their size 10 shoes. Food freshly cooked by Sue and at a very reasonable price.

Friendly staff and customers (mostly), good selection of drinks, fairly priced and good basic english meals.
