Description: The Fisherman’s Pub is located in the leafy hamlet of Fishers Green in the Old Town of Stevenage. Fishers Green neighbours the beautiful village of Todd’s Green and is part of an area rich in local history and natural beauty. The surrounding area is popular with those enjoying a peaceful day out in the countryside, and The Fisherman’s is backed by an open green conservation area of which the pub itself is part of.Our pub is popular with walkers and families who enjoy sitting in our beautiful country garden whilst relaxing with one of our home-cooked meals and a chilled drink. In winter, we recommend you grab a cosy spot next to one of our open log fires and soak up the atmosphere with one of our fabulous wines or ales. The pub’s wood-panelled and antique interior is designed to reflect the traditional role of the inn as a homely and welcoming place for meeting and relaxing.If you are looking to hold a private event, we also have a comfortable and bright function room, open for bookings, which can afford you and your party all the traditional ambience with a more personal touch.

We have been to The Fisherman a few times over the years. It has continued to improve on every visit. It's mainly a food pub now, but people are welcomed if they just want a drink. We last made a visit there on 30th Oct 2012. Happy to see no tacky Halloween themes going on. The only thing Halloween related was a homemade pumpkin soup which was their soup of the day. None of us tried it, none of us actually like pumpkin! The food we did order was quick, hot & generous in portion size.

We visited the Fisherman on a Wednesday evening and were offered a nice choice of tables. The pub is located in the former hamlet of Fishers Green on the very edge of Stevenage and retains a "country style" atmosphere not present in many of the town's other establishments.
I started with a pint of real ale (Greene King beers are served) which was extremely well-kept. The menu was well put together with a good variety of starters, mains and desserts including a choice of vegetarian items. Most mains were around the £10 mark which represented good value overall.
The quality of the food was excellent, way above what one might expect from a run of the mill pub/restaurant. My medium-rare steak arrived medium-rare rather than slightly pink and the rest of the meal, including dessert, was of an equally high standard.
Staff were polite and attentive without being "in your face" and we felt welcome and comfortable throughout. We will definitely be going back soon!

Lovely meal with a good deal of choice on the menu. Nice to get fresh, crisp salads and veg that wasn't over cooked accompanying the meals. Service was quick and efficient with just the right amount of time between courses.
Only complaint portions were sooooo large I couldn't fit in a dessert. Definitely returning soon x
