This pub is summed up very nicely by BF below. It is on CAMRA's Regional Inventory of pubs with historic interiors, mainly because of the unspoilt room on the left (signed as the "Trough"), and is also Grade II Listed. The room on the right (signed as the "Swill") was brought into pub use as late as the 1970s, although the building could be as old as the 17th Century.

As to the beers, they had on much of the Fuller's range of London Pride, ESB, Gales Seafarers and Oliver's Island. The two guest beers were the Darkstar pair of hophead and APA - if Darkstar can be regarded as a guest brewery in a Fuller's pub. This is another delightful Hertford pub well worth a visit.

ORIGINAL REVIEW April 2010.
The most attractive pub building in Hertford with low ceilings and a central fireplace which opens onto both bars.To the left of the low front door is the regulars haunt,basic but full of character while the room to the right is slightly larger,quarry tiled floor and settles,old tables,some high backed chairs all creating an authentic interior.From this room there are stairs to a first floor seating area which was closed on my visit.Each room has a counter and there are 8 handpumps dispencing 6 Fullers ales namely Pride,Discovery,ESB,seasonal Swing Low ,"Gales" HSB and Seafarer ,together with one permanent guest Butcombe Bitter and one rotating guest Everards Beacon on my visit.Pricing generally £3.10 but with ESB at £3.85 someone is "havin' a larf."
Ale quality is always reliable ,there is no juke box,fruit machines,muzak which makes this a real pub full of good conversation.Not quite got the ale range of The Old Cross Tavern or Old Barge but still well worth a visit.

UPDATE
There is a regular turnover of leasees at this Fullers tied house,but there is still a two guest policy besides the regular Seafarers,London Pride and ESB .On my recent trip it was noticeable that ale quality has picked up a lot ,so well done to the new team.The CAMRA listed interior is augmented by traditional pub furniture and some new paintwork.When ordering ale ,dont rely on the board in the right hand room,it was woefully out of date and had it not been for an inspection of the handpumps in the left hand room,a very fine Little Beer Corporation Little Smooth would have been missed.
