Modern French cuisine in the Hertfordshire countryside

At a glance

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 crab and cod pancake with creamy mushroom velouté; braised lamb shank, prunes and dauphinoise potatoes; lobster tail with Scottish mussels; and finish with bitter chocolate fondant. The wine list stretches to 100 bins.
