Country pub with old-world charm

At a glance

Bar menu
Open all year

Close to St Albans with its Roman ruins and good local walks, there is a delightfully welcoming atmosphere at this picturesque 17th-century pub, which is tucked away in a peaceful hamlet. Wooden benches and tables, antique dressers, log fires and exposed beams set the interior style and there’s a large enclosed garden. Both traditional and modern pub fare is offered. At lunch there’s ploughman's, baked potatoes, garden salads, deli platters, burgers and toasted sandwiches; while on the evening menu there might be lamb koftas, feta cheese salad, pittas, tzatziki and olives, followed by cherry and almond tart with double cream.
