“Great meal”
Reviewed June 23, 2013 via mobile

Shared a wonderful starter of mushroom on sour bread toast with rocket salad and balsamic vinegar.
We then ordered the burger and fish and chips both were fantastic. They had a really good selection to choose from without an enormous overwhelming menu. Food was amazing and service was quick friendly and with a smile. Will definitely be back.

“Worth a visit”
Reviewed June 18, 2013

Good food, good service, good location - what more could you ask for?
Yet another pleasant evening eating, drinking and catching up with friends. The Candlestick has a warm friendly atmosphere, although so far I've only been there with friends I would be happy to visit with family for Sunday lunch or an evening meal.

“Lovely meal, lovely setting”
Reviewed June 15, 2013

Finished our meal about an hour ago and since I found this pub on trip advisor I thought it's only right I add a review!

Firstly the location is wonderful, hidden down the smallest country roads with beautiful views all round.

Food was well presented, fairly priced and most importantly very good. Staff and service was great, all very friendly and helpful.

We will be back, highly recommended!

“Warming, welcoming and great value!”
Reviewed June 14, 2013

There are plenty of places to eat well in the area, but few perform to the standard of the candlestick. The very top end of Pub/Restaurant, with a superb selection at reasonable cost.
Good value all round and always a couple of good beers to tickle the palate too!

“OK food in a lovely location”
Reviewed June 13, 2013

Went for Sunday lunch on way to a concert at Hatfield house after seeing top reviews on Tripadvisor. The beer was good as was the cheerful and efficient service but the food was just ordinary pub fair. There was no finesse, veg not served separately and not even asked if you wanted gravy- it came already poured. The best thing is the setting with nice views and plenty of outside space with tables.
