Sports orientated bar/ pub just to the north of the Watford inner ring road. Has an emphasis on Rugby with plenty of Rugby memorabilia on the walls and, as mentioned by Clive below, is the unofficial home of Saracens supporters on match days.
Internally it is one room open plan space with the bar area to the front and an eating area to the back, which is made smaller by some fairly large tables. And then there is a decent sized decking area and garden out to the back.
The bar supports two hand pumps, but these are usually only GK IPA and Bombardier , so the beer choice is not brilliant.
But in my experience it’s a decent place to watch sport and for a pre and post match pint on football and rugby match days, when the crowds can be lively but never intimidating.

Sports orientated bar with the emphasis very much on rugby union with it being the (un)official home of Saracens supporters. Can get a bit lively at busy times but never threatening. Other times it's a haven of calm, almost to the extent that you wonder if it's OK to talk. Only a small bar, made smaller by the large tables they have installed. Fairly clean throughout and quite bright. Two hand pumps but only GK IPA and Bombardier on my last visit, I've also seen 6X on. Prices more expensive than average for the area.
