A comfortable and relaxed place with its own brewery round the back. There were three or four Verulam beers on tap when we visited and I thought they were very drinkable. Strangely, on the home page of the pubís website there is a fleeting mention of their own beers and a whole sentence saying that they serve Carlsberg, Fosters, Kronenborg, Guinness and ice cold Guinness. (Visited 13 January 2014).

Nice cosy little local pub at the bottom of the hill on London Road with a couple of lads running it, who seemed to know their stuff. I visited when the Oakham tap takeover was on and they had 5 taps of Oakham plus 11 keg including a whit bier, a Kernel table beer and a Brodies tap which looked like it might be changing to a Belgian draft. Beer quality was top notch and they were happy to go in to the cellar to get me a Hop Devil IPA which will always get extra points. Will drop by here when thereís no tap takeover for a second assessment but this was an enjoyable little taster.

Visited on Saturday 12th May at the beginning of a St Albans "crawl". Cosy pub - around four or five Cask ales on at time of visit, but no home brews. Food finishes early in the evening so beware when planning a trip. Beers well-kept, and atmosphere was pleasant - pub full but not overcrowded.

This is a pretty good pub to visit on the way from the train station to the town centre. The two regular beers Farmerís Joy and Clipper arenít bad and the atmosphere is pleasant enough.

An average pub which just happens to have a brewery behind it (the two are now separate businesses, although the pub sells at least two of the beers brewed there). The brewery, called Alehouse, is owned by the Lower Red Lionís gaffer and the beers are usually to be found there too.
