25 Vicarage Causeway , Hertford Heath, SG13 7RT
With its traditional feel, selection of real ales and a seasonally changing menu of hearty British fare, The Goat offers everything you’d expect from a classic country pub. Its rural location also makes The Goat popular with ramblers – you can even bring your dog. The exposed beams and roaring fire create a cosy environment in which to enjoy a scrumptious plate of sausage and mash in winter, while the beer garden offers the perfect spot in which to sip a cool pint during the warmer months. Other popular dishes include the classic pie of the day and the crispy beer-battered cod and chips. Vegetarians and vegans are not forgotten either: choose from vegan sweet potato falafel, wild mushroom risotto and mushroom and chestnut Wellington. The Goat’s bar menu also lists several small plates that provide the perfect accompaniment to a drink, and on Sundays guests can indulge in a traditional roast with all the trimmings.
