"My previous visits to this pub have been disappointing but I heard news of a refurb and called in today, not expecting too much. But it is in fact an amazing transformation and has gone markedly up market. The layout is much the same but the school canteen furniture has been replaced by some excellent reproduction furnishings and a plethora of old lampshades, one of which is the largest I have seen in a pub. There are some large decorative mirrors including two from Bass Charingtons Brewery. Outside is an attractive two-tier beer garden with loads of comfortable seating and prints on the walls. The drinks selection is excellent, there are three hand pumps (they are Cask Marque accredited) with Spitfire, GK IPA and a micro on offer on my visit. But it is their selection of lagers that really impresses, as well as the usuals like Star and Peroni there are two weisse beers, Budvar and Budvar Dark, plus Hoegaarden, Leffe and Fruili all on draught. Add to that some interesting bottles, including Duvel, and an extensive wine list and there’s something for everyone. It’s not cheap, the Franziskaner Weissbier was £3.80 and the Budvar Dark £3.20 and Sunday lunch comes at £8.90 although I didn‘t try the food. A good addition to St Albans’ bars.

"Large cavernous place with a warehouse feel to it. Tables and chairs look as if they have come from a school canteen. Attracts a young element at the weekends. Better pubs around if it's a proper pub you want.
