Good Beer Guide Entry 2019.

Popular canal side location with very scruffy tables outside. Could do with a good clean.

Inside, its wooden interior with a central bar and rather small. The bar is fiercely guarded by bar hoggers who obviously lost their space once, as they won't give up an inch.

Meant it was tricky for me to fully review the beers on handpull. I didn't recognise any of the pump clips but always prepared to try - if only I could have seen what was on offer.

Instead, and as it was a red hot day - I went for a Camden Hells Lager - served in a unique glass from the brewery.

Would certainly revisit....

Called into this fantastic 2018 Good Beer Guide pub while on a CAMRA coach trip of the area, and enjoyed it's sunny canalside location and it's choice of beers with CAMRA discount offered. It hosts all sorts of event from beer festivals to quiz nights, and has a cheese club. As well as around 5 real ales there can be up to 20 ciders. Our beers of choice were Tring Drop Bar and Stamps Bondi Blonde, both in good condition.

I had heard of this pub on many occasions before I darkened it's door.
It was originally an Allied Brewery pub, probably Benskin's or ABC. I'm not sure if it has an entrance in George Street as I approached it from the patio of the Boat a few yards away and left via a passageway that runs between the canal and George Street.
It's hard to imagine that this peaceful canal side location is only a short walk from Berkhampstead Station. The inside is small and well described below and was fairly quiet on my Friday afternoon visit. The five beers consisted of the house Riser bitter brewed by Tring, two by the XT brewery XPA and One, RCH Pitchfork and a new beer from a St Alban's brewery that I can't pin down from my scrawled note.
I went for the XT XPA (£3.60) which was a superb American Pale Ale. That doesn't sound cheap but this was a 5.9% beer and the 20p CAMRA discount reduced it to £3.40. The cider choice was overwhelming including alarmingly one of an unknown ABV.
This pub was a real antidote to having visited all four Milton Keynes Spoons earlier in the day.
It is more than just the best pub in Berkhampstead but one of the top pubs in Southern England and beats just about everything I've seen in London.
