This pub shut last year, but is now reported in the Hertfordshire CAMRA publication as open again and serving Doombar and Pride.

Just a quick pint, then I'm off left this review about The Skew Bridge

Lots of scaffolding around the front and side of the building, promoting some "We are open" signage. Inside, there are two fairly basic bars but the customers were all crowded around one of the counters making it unnecessarily difficult to get served. Scrappy little beer garden. Just one real ale (a pretty ordinary pint of Youngs Ordinary at £2.90) plus a draught cider. Perhaps it is starting to be refurbished; it certainly needs smartening up a bit to attract people back for a second visit.

Recently re-opened and whilst it's had a bit of a paint job it does need a bit more. It's in a residential/estate area and has loads of land surrounding it so you do fear that it might not last that long. I hope it does as it's a genuine pub doing what it can to survive. Friendly service and a couple of ales including Youngs Ordinary which was in good condition.
