"The refurbishment was indeed major and the new Mokoko Bar is vastly different to the old Harrow pub. All chrome and cocktails, piped music and subdued lighting, a tad pretentious and unwelcoming. I quite liked the old Harrow, for all itís drabness, and normally the passing of such a pub would lead to feelings of outrage and sadness. However St Albans has so many good pubs, some in the immediate area, that I guess this is more a case of natural selection. It balances the pub/bar ratio up a bit more and the Mokoko no doubt has its band of dedicated patrons. Iíll not be one of them though, and I expect theyíll be grateful for it. Hopefully we can keep the photo on the site to remind us of the Harrow.

"I agree that the pub is very unfriendly, but the ales and food are of a reasonable standard. I visited on a Thursday lunchtime - perhaps it's busiest in the middle of the day? The landlady's piercing stare almost vaporised me!"

"Probably the worst pub in St Albans. In dire need of a lick of paint. Visited one Thursday evening. Pub was empty, beer was off and the most miserable landlady I have ever met. "

"I found this pub during the afternoon break in the St Albans beer festival. Itís a proper pub with old boys in old cardigans and old suits, swearing, checking their 10p yankees and getting pleasantly drunk. Decent ales, friendly atmosphere, it would probably not survive in many towns but St Albans loves these sorts of pubs. Located at the junction of Verulam Road and Upper Dagnall St.
