About The Elephant and Castle
The Elephant & Castle…
Located on the edge of Wheathampstead on the way to Harpenden in leafy Amwell, we are the perfect escape from the hustle and bustle - Popular with bike and horse riders along with walkers and those looking for a large open space where you can dine, drink and relax. Our traditional 18th century building is surrounded by two large gardens with plenty of tall trees, filled with cosy corners and two wood burning stoves.
We have a multitude of carefully selected wines from across England and further afield, exceptional award winning ales, craft beer & lagers. There is also a wonderful selection of gin, whisky and rum alongside our brand new menu. Our meals are made with fresh, local ingredients and served daily for lunch and dinner.
We have parking front and rear and are a children and dog-friendly pub. So, if it’s a special occasion, a refreshing pint after a long ride or you just fancy relaxing with some great food & drink we will be happy to help. Simply give us a call or pop in and see one of the team. We look forward to seeing you soon…
All very happy with the e&c great food and service.
Sharing platter needs more cheese etc not value for money. Few more choices of starters
Absolutely fantastic in every way!
We had a lovely evening. Staff were as ever super friendly and efficient. Food was lovely. Cod with crushed potatoes was delicious. Cheese board was a treat! My friends had not been before but loved your pub.
Couldn't fault service which was quick and friendly. The menu looked nice and varied but was left disappointed by a lack of gluten and dairy free options which I found surprising given how common intolerances are these days. I was also slightly disappointed by my cheese and chorizo truncher which had very little toppings compared to the amount of bread, and all in all was quite basic. Wasn't a bad experience but won't be returning in a hurry.
We had a brilliant experience. Old friends who haven’t met up for over a year and they he food / service was just great. Thank you for making our first meal out for 14 months 🥲
Lovely young chap serving us in the marquee, just the right level of attentiveness. Nicely decorated Marquee made it a look cosy and welcoming. Food was great too. Keep up the good work!
Excellent service and superb Farrs 1492 thank you. The food was brilliant and the staff were also spot on. Thank you, look forward to coming again soon 😊
Good to be out and enjoy your hospitality with great service from all especially your team member George
The tipee is lovely, food delicious and our waiter was very attentive. The only thing that would make it better is some patio heaters. Will definately be returning.
The team all made such an effort. Thank you
The Scotch Egg is really really delicious!
Perfect place to eat with friends
Given the Covid restrictions we had a great meal with friends. Great service and the food was just great.
More choice of wine by the glass would be good.
The team were so friendly and helpful, the food was delicious with the steaks cooked to perfection. All round a lovely evening.

Such a lovely atmosphere with really happy welcoming staff. Great outdoor venue . We were celebrating family birthdays and the staff put candles on the desserts for the two birthday “boys”! We had a great evening .
I had the most wonderful lunch yesterday! The staff were absolutely amazing and despite the terrible rain - they braved the weather to ensure we had our meals in the tipi - they deserve medals!!!! Thank you the hamburger was scrumptious, abd my friends loved the fish n chips !
Really well organised. George was lovely and food was smashing
Great food and service, served in the outside garden
Staff are super friendly. Despite parking being tight, staff were accommodating and found alternatives. The drinks are great and the olives are amazing.
