This ivy-clad gastropub, originally a trio of early-18th-century cottages, is popular among both locals and visitors to the nearby Warner Brothers studio for its “good-value pub grub”. Chef Claude Paillet trained under the legendary Pierre Gagnaire before switching his focus to heartier fare.

“Voted best dining pub in Hertfordshire (by the Good Pub Guide) and for very good reason”; from those who’ve “tried and tested now for over ten years”, to “A-list celebs filming up the road” (at Warner Bros), this “proper” ivy-clad gastroboozer, with a trad interior and Anglo-French fusion fare, just “never disappoints”.

“All you want from country-pub fine dining”; it may be a “tricky place to find”, but this ever-popular rural boozer is well “worth the effort” by all accounts thanks to its “lovely location” and “amazing food”.
