Great all round. ✅
Service particularly good. Conveniently located next to Odyssey Cinema in St Albans.
Nice pub, good cinema offering.
Great food and brilliant service, Excellent veggie options
Lovely food and staff. We were going to the Odyssey and our table was booked for 7pm - we didn’t ask for the 20% discount but we received it anyway - nice touch.
We were really looked after - great service. We just felt a little ‘bunched in’ eating out meal otherwise it was good.
Lovely welcome, great pub food, lovely service and good beer
As always, fabulous food and made our daughters birthday party perfect. Thank you very much. Steven & Fiona
I would thoroughly recommend the meat and the vegetarian roast. The meals were very tasty indeed, as well as very appealing looking. Our only regret was that because the roast dinner was so delicious and there was so much of it, we could not manage a pudding! Perhaps next time!
Good quality pub food in a decent local pub. Couldn’t really ask for more.
GN's burgers are the best!
Lovely lunch with a lovely team of staff who made us feel very welcome on a Sunday afternoon with friends. Would definitely recommend and will visit again.
Excellent food and service as always.
Great food and service. Brilliant venue if attending the Odyssey cinema as 20% off. advertised as pre-dinner, but we went to a 5pm show and ate after and still got discount. Best to check on booking.
We had a delicious meal in the cosy snug. The service was just the right level of attentive. Thanks for the pre-cinema discount. We’ll definitely be back
very good pub grub
Great friendly attentive service, good value food, excellent pre cinema venue
Great food at a great price. Good selection of beer and very friendly service
Very convenient for the cinema 20% off your food if you produce your cinema ticket is a great idea too!
Went here last Wednesday with another couple for our husbands birthdays. We were greeted by a lovely young lady who then brought four glasses of bubbly to celebrate the birthdays! Such a lovely surprise, the food was brilliant and our waitress fantastic! We will be back soon.
Good food, great staff, good prices - and perfect place for a pre cinema bite to eat. What's not to like?!
Fantastic pub. Great choice of beers, lovely food, friendly and welcoming service. Reservation was booked for my mum’s birthday and we were made to feel like the only people in there despite it being very busy. I’ve been recommending the great northern to anyone and everyone!
Lovely pre cinema meal. Food and service could not have been better. We had Scampi and Burgers. House red wine was relatively cheap and to die for.
Great food and super friendly service. They even let us in a few minutes early so we didn't have to wait outside in the cold! Will definitely be back. Thanks.
I would love to be able to send a good review but sadly our experience was terrible. The waitress was run off her feet and the tables were crammed so closely together we could not get out from our table without disturbing others and we were party to the next table’s conversation without wishing to be. We ordred two vegan spinach and falafel burgers, dressed with hummus, one with a gluten free bun. This is important as my husband cannot eat wheat or dairy. We were served two cauliflower and cheese burgers, dressed with salsa, and when we questioned this, the waitress was told by the chef that the burgers were spinach and falafel (they were not, I tried one), he had just put the wrong dressing on them. We were not able to wait for a correct order to be served as we were eating pre-cinema. We were not charged for these orders, but even so, it is imperative that the pub takes food intolerances seriously and is correct with the food served.
Thank you for your feedback. I can only apologise unreservedly for such a mistake. There was a genuine breakdown in communication between front of house staff and the kitchen during a very busy service. As rightly pointed out, vegetarian burgers were served in place of the vegan burgers you had ordered. We take all allergies and intolerances extremely seriously. We are proud to hold a 5 star hygiene rating can can cater for numerous dietary requirements on request. I have spoken to staff and implemented additional checks and training where necessary. Again, sincere apologies. If you would like to discuss further, please feel free to contact me on 01727 730867 or via email at [email protected] Yours sincerely, Sheri
