Great food and great atmosphere, thoroughly enjoyed it! Table service and amazing good. Food was a touch more pricey than normal but worth every penny, especially deserts! Drinks were very reasonable - only £4.20 per pint!

Had a brilliant night here, the chicken was unbelievable and staff were extremely friendly. This is on the outskirts of Hemel so would advise having a designated driver!
