The Orange Tree
Pubs and Bars with Restaurants
The Orange Tree was recently named one of the best pubs in Hertfordshire by Hertfordshire Life magazine, and one of ten perfect country pubs within reach of London by Time Out. The ethos is simple – provide delectable, freshly cooked dishes in comfortable surroundings and ensure that everyone leaves with a smile on their face. The menus showcase the region’s local produce and the changing seasons. Mouth-watering options include the pie of the day with its suet pastry crust, line-caught haddock in crispy batter, slow-cooked mutton and a sirloin fillet burger. Visit at lunchtime and choose from lighter bites like cod’s cheek and peppered squid. The homemade desserts are worth indulging in and include a warm chocolate fondant and a Bakewell tart with clotted cream ice cream. Children are welcome for lunch and there is ample parking and large gardens. A visit to The Orange Tree is complemented by the front-of-house staff, who ensure that each guest is made to feel at home.
