This was a nice pub but sadly it closed on Sunday 25th October 2015. Nearest pub to Hitchin railway station is now The Albert.

My mate and I visited Hitchin for a Christmas pub crawl, This was suppoed to be our first port of call but it was closed at 1pm on a Friday lunchtime. On our way back to the station, we revisited and this was to be our 9th pub before getting the train home, so the memory's a bit hazy. However, I do recall a nice, slightly down-at-heel local with four real ales. Sadly, it was bit quiet for a Friday evening with perhaps half a dozen other drinkers which may explain why the landlord was a bit morose. If I commuted from Hitchin, I'd be happy to pop in here on the way home from work for a quick pint. It's much better than the dreary Molly Malone's just down the road.

If I commuted by train I would pop into this pub for a pint every night. But I don't, and I don't. There is nothing wrong with the pub at all, it is a good honest pub with decent beer, and little bit spit and sawdust but don't let that put you off. Landlord and lady are realy pleasant and will take time to stop for a chat. Never seems too busy.

I've been meaning to visit the Nightingale for a while, and have finally made it. The beer was good (good choice of real ales; the landlord seems to take the beer seriously) and the atmosphere seemed friendly enough. I wasn't that keen on the music and fruit machines inside, but they may appeal to some. Outside there is a quiet patio and, not being too busy, it was quite peaceful sitting next to a small pond with a fountain. I imagine it would get quite smoky outside if busy, and there didn't appear to be much cover if it rained. As superseagulls said, a good option if you want a drink while waiting for a train. Also decent if you want to play some pool or watch some sport. I'd be happy to include it on a pub crawl especially if the plan was to visit a sequence of pubs between the station and the town centre.

"Chavs" in the Nightingale? Pretty rare event that ... sorry, you came at a bad time :(

(I'm in the 'gale 2 or 3 times a week... we don't generally have many "chavs" about.)
