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

A classic timbered country estate pub popular with ramblers, horse riders, visitors to Shaw's Corner (NT), and families. The setting is superb with a large garden, including a pet's corner, surrounded by large trees and other listed buildings. There is a separate restaurant and bar snacks available in the two bars, both with fires, one with a massive inglenook, the other with a large wood burning stove. This building dates back to the fourteenth century and for over 40 years was George Bernard Shaw's local. The house beer, Brocket Ale, is brewed by Tring brewery. Guest beers have a strong Hertfordshire thread. Folk music every third Friday of the month, Jazz first Sunday, open-mic monthly and quizzes second Sunday.
