The Fox and Duck is a decent Hertfordshire country pub utilised by locals, walkers and dog owners alike. Internally it is one open-plan space with the front section with the bar area being mainly for drinking, being a plain wooden floor area encompassing two bow-windowed sections with chairs and largish stripped-top dark wood tables. And then the section at the back is carpeted and laid mainly to tables for dining.
The pub benefits from a large garden which stretches back behind the pub and although it includes play equipment, it backs onto a new ‘Village Play area’ with even bigger and better swings and roundabouts.
There is a decent pub grub menu but cannot pass comment on that as I have only ever utilised The Fox and Duck for a mid walk pint when doing one of the many decent village walks connecting to Therfield.
It’s a Green King pub and the beers on offer are the usual GK brands and were GK IPA, Abbot and St Edmunds on my last visit just after new year. And although the St Edmunds was a very well kept pint the pub would certainly benefit if one of the three hand pumps was dispensing a true guest beer.
Historically the pub has not opened on Sunday evenings, but the new landlord (of some 6 months) is a folk musician and there is now a small stage area on the right hand side of the main bar area and I believe the plan is to have music evenings on a Sunday.
So in conclusion, a solid enough country pub, ideal for a stop when walking with or without a canine friend, ideal for summer with the large garden, and could just do with a better beer choice.
