My daughter and I had fish pie and a portion of chips. It really was homemade and very good. We are quite fussy so we were unexpectedly surprised. Service was good and it was all so clean. Thank you.

Worst pub I visited in st albans. The barman will take your beer and dispose of it. Only advice if you venture this public house is do not let your pint out of your site.
