"This is without a doubt one of the (if not the) loveliest pubs in St. Albans. Not to repeat too much from the other reviewer, but it is true that the beautiful historic building with the exposed beams and brickwork is wonderful, especially as some places these days seem keen to destroy or hide these features in renovations. The collection of real ales is great and the pub is beautifully furnished both inside and in the beer garden. There's a convenient smaller side garden for smokers to nip out for a swift fag. Other nice, unique and (these days) rare features include a bar billiards table, at least one open fireplace and even an old style cooking range in the front bar. The landlady is very friendly. This is certainly a beautiful pub."

"A gem of a pub hidden away down a narrow residential lane halfway up (or down) Holywell Hill. The unassuming exterior just does not prepare you for the delights inside, there are around six different seating areas plus a large and well-furnished patio outside. The interior is a mass of oak beams, pillars and exposed brickwork, and the furnishings add to the authentic feel. It looks as if it was an old coaching inn many years ago. Food is available from a rather pricey menu and there is a selection of board games available behind the bar. The real ales are usually in good form and go beyond the usual GK IPA and Bombardier offering that you so often see these days. In this world full of All-Bar-One's and Pitcher & Piano's it is comforting to know that proper pubs like this are still around and flourishing.
