See more about this pub on WhatPub, CAMRA's national pub guide.

This is a large club house is shared by the local Cricket, Hockey, and Squash clubs. Its known for serving real ale and always features local breweries, with a varied selection on the four hand pumps and usually there are a selection of ales from Hadham, Mauldon, Tring, Wolf and Adnams. The Bar is a bit sports dominated with football often screened, however the number of drinkers means there is a regular turnover of ales and as a result the beer is normally in good condition. As from Feb 2015 the club stopped being a members only bar and operates as a pub with all welcome, the large open grounds make for a great beer garden when its nice weather and in addition, members of the club and CAMRA members also enjoy discounted drink prices. The club is towards the northern edge of the town, and the entrance can be easily missed, as there is no traditional pub sign, look for the turning into the car park between the cricket pitch and tennis courts.
