Beers as already listed by Jason, we popped in here for a pint whilst on our way to meet up with our Friday evening group. A good town centre pub with friendly and efficient staff. Prices seemed reasonable for the area.

The pub is found in Hertford, Hertfordshire, SG14 1BA.

Recently renovated, in Railway Street. Very smart interior with equally smart staff in their uniforms. Greene King tied but with free rein to obtain beers from other breweries. Thomas Slingsby Duncombe was M.P. for Hertford in the 1830s.

We have visited this pub 3 times, seen 8 different beers and tried 3 of them.
