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 4.30pm).
