My very unpleasant experience chimes strongly with that of disabled reviewer Stephanie Willow, whose review appears below. I asked for a refund on a packet of crisps that were soft. I asked politely for a replacement pack. I was refused a refund on the grounds that I had opened the pack (!), and that I had been rude to the manager (I most definitely hadn't). The manager then refused to serve me and when I asked for an explanation I was barred for the pub. At no point was I in any way rude or raise my voice. The pub seems to have a really unpleasant management with a very big chip on their shoulder. I would suggest you avoid this pub like the plague and instead visit another of St Albans many friendly establishments.

Since last visit appears to have been spruced up. Seems brighter and cleaner. Toilet a definite improvement. Ordered 2 meals for £10.50, better deal than 2 sandwiches. The background music was very loud had to move to another table, maybe it was more for the young staff than the clientele!

Good service, decent pint, good range of offering, fantastic beer garden - impressive! Food pretty good, overall good for a chain pub...lacks atmosphere unfortunately and doesn't stay on top of showing the sport advertised.

Came here Saturday for a couple of beers, doorman was probably the friendliest doorman I have ever been greeted by!
Drinks prices were reasonable and service was quick and efficient.
Had football on here, TVs were decent, nice outside area also.
Couldn't be a bit cleaner in here.
Good pub to start a night out in and work your way up the street.

Good for watching sport but thats about it. Food is honestly disgraceful and way below that of the other pubs in the area. Service is slow and busy.

We have found a new local that shows the sport we want so will not be back.
