About Dylans - The Plough
Sleapshyde is a quiet hamlet in St Albans, Hertfordshire, surrounded by stunning English Countryside. The primary alehouse dates back to 1690 and features wooden beams, which have recently been restored to their original state. Lime plastered walls, two fireplaces and low ceilings make The Plough a cosy and inviting pub, which is family and dog-friendly.
The Freehold has recently been purchased by Dylans, St Albans; a truly independent pub serving similar drinks to the city centre restaurant but with proper pub food. Head Chef Liam Goldstone creates his own seasonal menus which change regularly.
The Plough has a spacious garden with covered dining on the terrace, surrounded by fields and horses. The pub is just off the Alban Way: a 45-minute walk or 9-minute cycle from Hatfield and an hour’s walk or 20-minute cycle from St Albans City Centre.
We offer a welcome pitstop for a drink, lunch or dinner.
If the time or date you wish to book isn't available or you'd like to book a table for groups over 8 people please call us on 01727 823720
Friendly staff, very welcoming. Great garden, will return for a weekend lunch!
The food was delicious and presented beautifully. Will definitely visit again!
A pleasure to visit Dylan’s again!
We have never had an adequate meal here; it’s always been exceptional and so much more than just a pub meal. The service is friendly and the team know their products. We highly recommend The Plough for a meal or just a drink, and we will definitely be back. Sarah & Lee H
The food was fantastic! Thanks.
Lovely Pub, and amazing Food! Would highly recommend!
There was outdoor cooking but we had the set meal,all courses delicious. Very busy but did not affect the quality of food or service.
Excellent meal, service and venue. Telling all our friends.
Wonderful service, went over and above to accommodate. Highly recommend. Fantastic lunch
Had a lovely meal, staff really friendly, great setting.
Excellent Sunday lunch. The chicken was tender, the roast potatoes were golden and crunchy - every mouthful was delicious. The service was excellent particularly as the restaurant and gardens were very busy. Highly recommended!
Great atmosphere and service but the food didn’t quite justify the price. A shame as we have eaten here before.
Great food and wine in a warm and friendly atmosphere. Very accommodating and regular menu updates.
Excellent food and service
We had a lovely birthday evening, thank you
Food was excellent - very well presented and delicious. Good menu with good range of choices. Perfect portion sizes. Service was a bit chaotic and a bit hit and miss - needs to better organised - although our food did come quickly after ordering. The bar was a little on the noisy side so conversation was difficult at times but this is a common problem with restaurants at present - probably has a lot to do with the lack of noise-dampening soft furnishings! We had a very pleasant evening nonetheless and I would recommend.
We had a very enjoyable visit and meal. Only 3 stars for atmosphere as our visit took place on a Monday lunchtime so understandably very quiet. Glad to see that The Plough still has the feel of the country pub we’d previously enjoyed for many years
We tried The Plough for the first time on Father's day. We had a lovely Roast Dinner. The service and attentiveness was excellent, as was the food! I think my Husband is still dreaming about the Bread and Butter Pudding!
We came in for a late fathers day lunch, the food was fabulous s was the house lager and Provence Rose'. Great service and lovely atmosphere. Will definitely be back again! Thank you
Everything was fantastic!
The food was tasty but the portions miserly and I would only recommend the restaurant to someone that wanted to lose weight.
A incredibly enjoyable evening had by all - each member of the party commented on how good the evening had been in all respects. The star was the quality of the food coupled with excellent friendly and un-intrusive but efficient service, atmosphere and surroundings. There wasn't a dish on the menu that wasn't wanted to be tried and all those that were, were tasty, challenging and a perfect example of restaurant quality modern food. the Cod dish deserves a star on its own!. Will be back in a flash! Thank you
Good beer, friendly welcome
For somebody who eats about 90% vegetarian and zero red meat More vegan/vegetarian options would be nice. Quite limited to just two, i will eat poutly or fish and the menu is always very red meat orientated so some chicken dishes would be a nice change. Although the fish options are always very good. Cannot fault the food quality at all. And service is always amazing
Food was delicious!
