Close to the large, traditional village green and with good English real ales flowing in the beamed bar, it comes as a surprise that the menu has a strong French bent to it. Cue the Gallic owners, whose culinary skills have gained an AA Rosette for their inspired cuisine at this former waggoners’ and coaching stop in the low Hertfordshire hills. Menus may include mussels marinière; macaroni and cheese with parmesan crisp and salad; crispy monkfish cheeks; hot green beans and button mushroom salad with sauteéd minute steak; or potted duck confit with hot caramelised onions. The wine list stretches to 100 bins.
