Stuffed full of friendly locals and regulars this pub was a bonus when we moved into the area recently. Cosy in the winter months and cool in the summer and MOST importantly - serves a very nice Savvy B. What's not to like?

Great atmosphere. Great company. Great local. With a Shunting Good Pub Quiz once a month. And a model train running round the top of the old oak paneling.

Got to say I am a bit biased as this is my local. It is a lovely friendly pub serving great ale. Normally filled woth friendly locals and Brick Top' as the landlord. Pop on for a pint if you are in Hertford.
