A night out with friends.

Great meal. I love fish and the Sea Bass was divine. Service was great and so was the atmosphere. Would definitely go again and recommend. The only thing is, if you don't know the area you definitely need a Sat Nav to find Martins Pond.

Today was our wedding anniversary and we made plans to visit Martin's Pond for lunch. Having lived in Hemel Hempstead for 14 years, this was our first visit and I'm just sorry that we haven't made the effort before. Martin's Pond is in a very scenic village setting, in the heart of Potten End, and only 5 minutes from home.... More

Martins Pond in Berkhampstead is a must vist. There were 6 of us and I had a starter of Scallops that were delicious with others having Spring Rolls that were also tasty. 5 of us ordered Sea Bass and as a person who not very often eats fish all I can say is it was wonderful. One of party ordered... More

Offers a good menu of quality dishes, including some straight forward favourites such as ham, egg and chips. Service is friendly and reasonably quick. Local beers are available (& are very good!!). Not particularly cheap but worth the visit nonetheless.

Went hear with friends on a Tuesday - place was near capacity! Good food, and the "tasting menu" at an amazing £25 was stunning - incl coffee and two (small) glasses of wine - incredible!

Considering it was quiet it was a long service! Menu very limited, food wasn't bad but I was disappointed as it was expensive for what it was, I most certainly not be going back!

Went there on a Saturday night. Nice staff, good menu and really enjoyed the food. Parking is a pain as you double park outside and you sometime have to move your car during the meal. It's a minor issue and did not spoil the evening. I would recommend this restaurant which is reasonable prices for a good night out.

Really nice family meal tonight at Martins Pond pub / restaurant. We four had a great evening at Martins Pond, nice choice of local beers & wines and all the food locally sourced. A very nice evening with good professional service. Will go again.
