We booked for a Saturday night but arrived at eleven in the morning to get ready for a wedding that lunchtime. The staff couldn't have been more helpful getting the room ready, getting bags out of the car, ordering a taxi etc.. Room very comfortable, breakfast the next day was lovely, couldn't ask for more & next time we're in... More

Not the Ritz, but really comfy with everything you could need. Nothing too much trouble, and a lovely touch - as we had something to celebrate the landlord served up complimentary bubbly with our breakfast! Super friendly service, clean and £reasonable. Grub and beer also spot-on. Will definitely return.

OK, it's not the Ritz but you'd not expect that. What it is, is clean, comfortable and really welcoming. Tony and the team are great and go out of their way to make your stay perfect. The breakfast was delicious I would also suggest taking the time to have an evening meal here it's really good!

This place is a little gem. I regularly meet with friends here as the staff are so friendly yet unobtrusive. We have an opportunity to catch up and sample their lovely menu and/or just spend time over tea( in a teapot!) and coffee. Keenan is one of the staff treasures.

It was absolutely fantastic , a seafood platter comparable to any I have seen throughout France or Whitstable! The beef was rare and tasty. In... More

The room was adequate, but not clean to my standards. The bedding was okay but the sheets were all bobbly and the bathroom was one of those horrible plastic wet rooms with a very poor shower. We had a room next to the road which has a high volume of traffic from very early in the morning and the single... More

Tony and his staff make the Silver Cup a great pub. Really good food, fab drinks and a friendly professional service. Nothing is too much trouble and the staff go out of their way to make sure you have a great visit. Good location in Harpenden, close to the town centre and train station.

The room was very old looking and depressing. The window was knackered and rattled badly with the wind all night. That meant a poor night's sleep so I hoped the breakfast would be good. I can't comment because downstairs was completely deserted of staff at 9:30 so I had to leave and find somewhere to eat. I rang an hour... More

Arrived late and had to leave early, thankfully, so only had 11 hours to last in the room. It was so dirty and run down I wished I could levitate. Tiles broken in shower and a dirty base with tatty old towels akin to ones I'd relogate to the dog's muddy feet. For a £90 a night hotel new towels... More
