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 8235720.

My fish soup was watered down no flavour, my second choice of chorizo balls was served cold, my pork belly was full of fat and not crispy, the portion were very small on all plates. It was my birthday lunch which was booked 3 weeks ago. We were given a reduction for my meal. The manager did not go out of his way to copensate the meal to my friends or i with free desserts or coffee. we paid £78 together for a very disappointing lunch. Lorraine Harrison

I went for Sunday lunch with 3 friends and we all had the perfect roast dinner with a lovely bottle of wine to go with it. The service was brilliant and each member of staff was very friendly and attentive. I couldn't recommend a better place for lunch and will definitely be going back soon.

Cracking food and friendly service, a tad pricey at £7 for a glass of Sauvignon and £15 for fish and chips but all in all a superb pub restaurant

A shame that the fact it was my mothers birthday was ignored having mentioned it in my booking, then her meal (veg option) was incredibly disappointing and overpriced for what was served £16 for a couple of potatoes and 1/2 a courgette.... Rest of the food was nice but overall not a great experience..

A good menu choice and the food was very tasty. Quite quiet on a Wednesday evening so not much of an atmosphere. Our waiter was very attentive.

Had a really nice evening. Service particularly for starters was pretty slow but didn’t really matter too much as we were going to be there for a few hours catching up anyway!! Staff were really friendly and helpful.
