Pleasant if unexceptional Greene King pub. OK if passing, but probably not worth making a special trip to.

The Duncombe Arms was my final pub of the night yesterday. It is a Greene King pub, but has a decent range of guest ales. In addition to their IPA & Abbot, they had Potbelly Beijing Black, Cliff Quay Tumble Home & Ossett Silver King. The cider was Thistly Cross Whisky Cask. The interior is fairly open-plan. But unfortunately a quiz was taking place. This meant that all tables were reserved and standing at the bar with silence apart from the women reading the quiz questions and the occasional bit of banter. Service was fairly inattentive. The barman was one of those that would be more suited to a nightclub with bottle spinning antics. But nevertheless this is another decent option for Hertford. Just don't pick a Thursday night.

A great pub. We were visiting from out of town and had an excellent Sunday lunch, promptly served, in the large beer garden. Only downside was the ales - just IPA and Abbot. Recommended.

Our old local in a very different incarnation when it was run by Dennis and Audrey, like parents of one enormous and very happy family. What fun was had there over the years.
The interior is unrecognisable but the pub is run by an excellent, energetic and creative landlady who is working hard to bring it back to life. The beer is consistently good, the service friendly and the food, we understand, good value for money.

This place isn’t going to win any awards, but I found the staff and other clientele to be friendly enough. Greene King IPA and Abbot are still the only ale offerings, but my pint of Guinness was well served.

I spotted a couple of plasma screens for the showing of Sky Sports and there was some decent background music playing.

I wouldn’t rush back here, but there is a nice beer garden out the back handy for the summer months.
