Just out side Harpenden

Good clean pub/ restaurant and is just out side the town of Harpenden, plenty of free parking. The food is good and was severed hot. We thought wine by the glass was expensive though.

As a group of 7, we reserved a table for 6,30pm, it took until 7.15 for them to take our food order and a further 45mins to get out food. We were told the food was delayed because they had to cook the pies!! Food was delicious, but 30 mins after we had all finished our food, the plates were... More

This is a great pub in Harpenden and the food is tasty with lots of variety on the menu and good service. Prices are reasonable and good portion sizes. There is a nice relaxed atmosphere and we didn't feel rushed even when it was busy.

Tried repeatedly to catch someone's attention when my starter arrived swimming in water. Main course arrived without extra dishes ordered. Big shame as we had waited to try the new menu. Not rushing back!!

Service painfully slow and food rather tasteless. Looked the part and menu was impressive. Believe part of Mitchell and Butlers and sadly our experience of some of their pubs are that the makeover looks better than the food actually is! Rack of lamb was cooked well but the mushroom starter took 30 mins and was tepid.

Six of us went for Sunday Lunch. The Pork was tough, the chicken was dry and the roast beef was ok. The puddings were ok but the damson and apple crumble really needed a full jug of custard as the shortbread topping was very dry.The service was poor, there was never a waitress/waiter around when you needed them. We will... More

The food was served with only a short wait was hot & plenty of it. althought we were sitting outside we still received great service.... More

Went for a family meal last weekend and the food has massively gone down hill. The service was average at best too...
