Gastro Pub of the year!

Fresh, tasty food in a quiet little area just outside of Hitchin. Knowledgeable staff and good selection of wine and beer. Worth checking out if you are looking for something new!

When you walk inside the pub the atmosphere is great. Enjoy a fine beer and the surroundings. everything changes when you pick up the menu.There is a fine selection but hardly pub grub.The meals are overpriced an are not spectacular.

Had my birthday dinner here last weekend..could not fault the food or service and the pub had a lovely ambiance. It was fine dining but did consider a little overpriced although it would not put us off going back there. Have also had lunch there too which was also excellent.

Having not been to this pub for a few years due to poor food and service. Visited last night and was delighted with both the food and the service. Very intimate settings in a delightful area.

Great service and great value at this little gem of a pub .. big sunny garden and lovely patio deck as well as a very comfortable seating area inside. Food was very well presented and very tasty. Recommend everything on the menu .. especially the Eton Mess (though it should be called Eton Tidy as it is very elegantly presented... More

It has been under new management for a little while and I have been a few times since and have been very impressed. A little more expensive than The Fisherman and cheaper than The Red Coats Hotel. I have had great meals all the times I have been.
