We've been going to The Verulam Arms in all its incarnations since the 1980s, from the days of the legendary James and Ulli Lennon through to Sean late of The Boot; it's always been a great local pub in the St. Albans Conservation Area. Now reincarnated as The Foragers at The Verulam Arms, it should be a must for the... More

Wonderful experience. Was fantastic, had full use of all facilities including the rear garden. All of our guests were impressed and you have many converts. The food was fantastic and for the faint of heart who chose the steak, all said was best they'd had anywhere. As for the rest of us who got stuck into your speciality foragers food,... More

Good food and friendly service. Staff coped well with the needs of a 1 year old great niece. The bar environment would suit travellers with its old world feel. Keep up the good work.

I hadn't been to St.Albans for a number of years but due to a grandson taking up residence there I was delighted to rediscover it. The arranged visit to the Foragers was a surprise in all areas! I knew that the moment our party entered it was going to be a successful visit, the warm and friendly greeting was followed... More

I had heard really good things about the pub online so decided to give it a go with some friends for Sunday lunch. I opted for the wood pigeon to start, which was fantastic. My husband had the soup which was also really tasty. For mains we all had the beef roast however the waiter told us that the chef... More

Have visited twice now for both mine and my husband's birthdays. I absolutely love the food here. I like the fact that it's a pub and quite a relaxed atmosphere but all the food is amazing! I think the 'foragers' concept is really interesting too and there are some unusual dishes on the menu that you wouldn't normally see elsewhere.... More
