“Good food, good atmosphere, reasonably priced”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 19, 2013

This has been our venue of choice in Harpenden for a variety of occasions: a birthday treat for one of our children; a family meal; a dinner for two; somewhere to take a friend for lunch. The menu has something for everyone - we particularly like the sharing boards as a starter. There is always a good selection of specials on the board, the portions are generous but not overly so, and the service is generally good (we had one slow meal there once). The atmosphere is relaxed and the service friendly.

“Good venue for our Christmas meal”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 15, 2012 via mobile

I ate hear with a group of friends for our Christmas dinner.
On arrival we were shown to our table promptly. I had been advised to pre-order our Christmas menu as we were a party of 6, which I did 2 weeks prior to our meal. However they no record of our pre-order. However by way of apology they gave us a bottle of prosecco on the house, so can't complain really. We were given Santa party hats too.
The food was very good! I had soup, beef & dumplings & cheese cake-all delicious. Six consistently empty plates after each course in my group. The restaurant was very busy, however this did not affect service (which was very attentive), & all customers appeared to be having a good time.
This wasn't the cheapest Christmas menu in the area, but the quality of the food was superb.
Overall a lovely evening, would return here for a meal again in the future.
