We stayed a Friday/Saturday weekend break. The Brocket Arms is basically a pub with rooms to let. The staff are very friendly and will do everything to accommodate your needs best they can, but the best point of this beautiful place must be the food. The food is outstanding, well worth London status. The situation of this pub is rural... More

Stayed here the night before a meeting in Wheathampstead. Good food served in the pub and the rooms were clean, well equipped and comfy. My only slight improvement would be to improve the wifi in all areas of the room as it was a bit on and off which when your staying for business isn't ideal. Breakfast the next day... More

We went for a meal and a drink on 2 January 2015. The food was excellent, my wife has a glutton intolerance and the chef and other staff could not have been more helpful, they were more than happy to advise on what she could eat and tailor dishes to her needs. She had a Hake dish and I had... More

A great stay at this characterful hotel. Our room had exposed beams and a four poster bed. The food was excellent and the staff very friendly, helpful and nothing was too much trouble. Ayot St Lawrence is an interesting village and our stay quiet and peaceful. Thank you to all at the Brocket Arms.

We decided to spend a night not far fro Stanstead Airport where we were due to meet our son the following day. We searched for B&Bs not far from Stanstead and Hatfield and by pure chance, landed on Brocket Arms. We live in a quiet village in Dorset and wanted the same quiet location even though it was only one... More

You want historic, you got it. You want peace and quiet, you got it! If you want to step back in time to the Tudor era, this is the place to stay. A beautiful old monk's retreat set in Hertfordshire which has been converted into a pulbic house. It has some lovely little B&B rooms for rent in beautiful peaceful... More

We stayed one night here after flying into Heathrow from Spain before heading back up north the next day. The pub took some finding in the lanes round about but once there, we were pleased we’d chosen it as it was peaceful and relaxing. The exterior of the pub and the accommodation are charming and the room had been refurbished... More

Stopped for one night whilst working in the area. Staff were very polite and welcoming. Room was really comfortable and the breakfast was just the right amount to start the day. Even got a pint off the owner which is always a nice touch

I stayed at this beautiful traditional ye olde inn on Saturday 26th July. The weather was terrific, the beer garden perfect and the BBQ in the afternoon just topped it all off. My accommodation was excellent - the room nice, cosy, clean and had free WIFI which is always a bonus. The staff were very friendly and nothing was too... More
