Mixed views this year on this popular branch of a small local chain. To critics it’s “overpriced for what is basically standard fare”, while fans feel “you can count on a good meal every time”.

“Ever-popular Harpenden branch of this local chain, that’s busy and buzzy with folk of all ages enjoying themselves”. Fans say it’s “unfailingly good in all areas”, but to critics it’s no more than a “pleasant enough local”.

Numerous locals think of this branch of a well-known local group as “the best in the small chain” (although its ratings are, in fact, a tad lower than the St Albans original). Whatever the truth, it’s “a happy spot”, serving “mostly fish, but also a good carnivore selection”.

"If it weren't for the really uncomfortable chairs, this would rate a 4 or 5 on ambience. But they do detract with total lack of back support. Very popular with locals and for good reason as the price is great for this standard of cooking."
