Slightly out of the town centre, I had the fortune to walk into this pub whilst it was holding its yearly "Brickfest" music festival in its cosy courtyard out back (and great not to hear any cover versions). This has a small entrance hall which opens into a staple-shaped room with similarly shaped bar. Bench seating around the periphery with standard tables and chairs and carpeted to the right and bare-boarded to the left with a tiled bar apron extended out towards the entrance. Various trophies on a high shelf above the bar, tankards hanging from hooks from two ceiling beams, wall-mounted, glass-fronted shelf displays of miniature bottles and old beer bottles on high, near ceiling, shelving. Young's Bitter, Directors Bitter, Bombardier Gold, Wychwood Gold and an excellent Adnam's Ghost Ship (£3.80 a pint) served by hip, but efficient and friendly bar staff. Three further pumps were unclipped. I took a big shine to this place as there was a happy mix of young and old. I hope the ambience extends to weeknights.

The Bricklayers Arms is a plain looking town pub that is situated on a busy road just off Hitchin's town centre.
Once inside the bar faces in an L shaped room,the right side of the room is carpeted and the left side bare boarded,there is bench seating and chairs and normal tables and chairs for seating.
There was a decent choice of real ales on the bar,which was a surprise as i thought this would be a Charles Wells tied house,i had a drink of Wychwood Drop Head,which was a decent drink,the other real ales noted were Fullers Sticky Wicket,Bombardier,Bombardier Gold,Youngs Bitter and Courage Directors.
There was a TV to the left which was showing vintage music videos which i like to watch.
I thought this was a decent enough pub to have a drink in.

Yes, further to BF's update we found a bit of a mixed bag. They had three different sorts of Bombardier on, Young's Special plus from Banks & Taylor, Plum Mild which sadly was a bit thin and disappointing. The other handpumps must have gone unless I was mistaken and didn't see any others. A central bar, the room wraps around either side, carpeted each side but tiled sensibly in front of the bar, red ceiling. Button backed banquettes to the perimeter, miniature spirit bottles in a wall mounted case, 70s beer trays on a shelf and trophies (for what?) on the bar back where stone jars live in a glass shelved cupboard. Pewter tankards hang from a beam and a framed map of old Hertfordshire took some of my attention as a map geek. Other decor has old brewery ads.
There is a rather unusual outdoor area to the rear, totally divergent to the pub, all I can say is take a look.
