Used this as a meeting place with friends for lunch - both coming from an hour away. The staff were so welcoming and brilliant with our 2 year old daughter. Some brilliant beers on tap and the food was lovely. 100% would recommend - again the staff were lovely!
Good staff. Sunday beef roast was good. Table was a little cramped.
Thank you so much for hosting us on Saturday! Everyone had a lovely time 😊 and all the little touches were very much appreciated! Great vibe and the lovely lady behind the bar was very patient with our hungover indecision 😂
We were able to be seated even though we were very early. Good food, nice choice of drinks, staff were friendly.
First visit to this pub lovely atmosphere and Lovely meal food was very good and value for money Staff were very helpful and couldn’t do enough for us to ensure we had a lovely afternoon
Very friendly and helpful staff. Great food. The roast pork was spectacular! Been a few times before and this was the best so far.
Dinner before the cinema. Lovely staff, excellent food and at decent prices.Will almost certainly come back again
We always receive a warm welcome and it is nice to be remembered "hello again!" - the pre theatre meal deal is a great inducement to always eat at The GN before a film next door. See you soon GN!
Great pub and great service !
Fantastic evening! Thanks to all for making it such an enjoyable event
milk alternatives for coffee (oat, soy, almond etc) and more vegan dessert options would be great
This was a pleasant surprise, food was good and the team were very helpful. Would definitely recommend this pub Mezan
We had a fantastic roast on Sunday. Food was excellent and the service was second to none. This is a great local pub, the staff and other regulars are very friendly! Great afternoon spent in great company, thank you!
Lovely staff but just not enough of them. Dinner took a hour to come, which was 5 roasts. A booking at 2pm and they had almost ran out of roasts. Understand things are hard to plan for Sunday’s, which is why I booked at 2pm thinking there would be enough choices still left. When it arrived it was not very filling. They did give us extra cauliflower cheese. Overall nice people but I sense the kitchen just couldn’t keep up with demand and quality and quantity suffered. I may try this place again as it could of been just a bad day.
Unfortunately we found the roast extremely overpriced and not substantial enough at all! Was in a party of 4 and we all felt the portions were not big enough. Disappointing unfortunately
Super friendly, great food, good beers...what else would you want....
Service and attention from staff was fantastic. Really vibrant and atmospheric pub. Food was ok! Standard pub fare from Brake Brothers frozen range. All in all a good pre cinema experience
We popped in for a quick dinner before going to the cinema next door. We were impressed by the friendliness of the staff and the speed of the service. We'll definitely be visiting again!
Great 80s music, my 15 year old daughter loved it as much as I did. Great atmosphere. Fab food. Sunday roast to die for, had the pork, totally delicious. Great service.
Fabulous Sunday lunch and wonderful service with a smile as always...
The food was lovely and the service was great - very attentive staff. We will definitely visit again.
Fantastic roast and friendly service. The roast pork belly was particularly delicious and perfectly cooked. The home-made apple crumble was great too! There was quite a long wait between our starter and main course and the pub was rather cold but these were minor issues.
Great all round. ✅
Service particularly good. Conveniently located next to Odyssey Cinema in St Albans.
Nice pub, good cinema offering.
