Great place! I’m just sorry that I’ve lived in Watford all my life, and only now gone in! Myself partner and kids went, and were not disappointed. Food is cooked to perfection, wide drink selections too. Staff were very friendly yet professional at the time....More

Very nice Sunday lunch, followed by a walk around Aldenham reservoir. Plenty of space on the pub, choices of traditional roast but also other items. Kids menu. Roasts come with a good selection of organic vegetables. Good views, great real fire too. Very pleasant!

We visited in warm weather and were able to sit outside and enjoy looking over to Aldenham Country Park. Very pleasant, welcoming welcoming atmosphere and pretty good service. The food was good and we will go back as well as recommending to friends and family.More
