Welcome to the Orange Tree
The Orange Tree is the area's most exciting country pub and restaurant.
Just a ten minute walk from the centre of the village and set in beautiful Hertfordshire countryside with large gardens and two ample car parks, we offer a warm welcome and relaxed dining.
We serve drinks from 12-3pm then 6pm-11pm Tuesday to Saturday and 12 noon till 6pm on Sunday (unless we have a special event which means opening later). Our kitchen, serving fresh, home cooked food, is open from 12-2.30pm lunchtime and again 6-9pm (last orders 8.30pm Tuesday - Thursday and 8.45pm Friday and Saturday). On Sundays we serve a full menu plus our Home Cooked Sunday Roasts from 12-6pm (last orders 5.00pm).
The Home of Freshly Cooked Food
We always have an enticing Specials Board which includes the best fish, meat and vegetarian dishes - using great produce and all cooked to order. Alongside the specials is our regular seasonal menu including The Orange Tree 8oz Angus Burger, Battered Fish of the Day, Calves Liver and Bacon, Home Baked Pie of the Day and many more.

Cellar of the Year!We are delighted to have won McMullens Cellar of the Year Award in our first full year! The award is the result of two independent audits and additional visits by the brewery's cellar services representatives throughout the year. As well as testing the beers for clarity, temperature, taste and 'lacing' (how long the head remains after pouring) marks are awarded for cellar management, hygiene and cask rotation. Further tests are carried out on glasswashing equipment, glasses, soft drinks cabinets, etc. Well done team!
Do You Know a Keen Gardener?Does anyone know of a capable - probably retired - gardener who can establish and maintain our small allotment and two raised beds for our fruit, veg and herb growing project. Or supply good organic veg from their own patch. Enthusiastic hobby gardener would be ideal. Payment likely to be in pints, lunch or produce (plus any expenses incurred). Call 01279 722485 and ask for Tom.
