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).

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 freshly 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.

Christmas comes around earlier every year and we're pretty much full for the later sittings on Christmas Day. Some earlier tables are available and of course our Christmas Party menu will be available throughout December (excluding Saturdays and Sundays) for lunchtime and evenings.

Another great night...look out for more events.

Could YOU be one of our food tasters?



Plans are well under way for our next seasonal menu change and we'll be looking once again for volunteers to join our tasting panel. We need 6 representative customers to join us for a fun, informal interlude as we present our shortlisted dishes to get your feedback on concept, presentation and taste before the dishes make it onto our a la carte menu. New tasters are encouraged to join although previous panellists are equally welcome to apply again. Good food, discussion and we'll probably try out some new wines along the way! To apply simply drop us an email on the Contact page.
