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.

Guest Chef Night a Great Success
Our great friend and highly talented MasterChef Semi-finalist Saira Hamilton returned to The Orange Tree for the fifth time fusing her own brand of vibrant, fresh Bengali-inspired flavours together with our fresh local produce and of course ably supported by our own brilliant Orange Tree chefs. Another great night...look out for more events.

New Seasonal Ale
Our latest Special Reserve, Flower Power's flavour is distinct because natural whole flower English Fuggle hops are used thus retaining oils that are otherwise lost in many ales. More power to the flower we say! Clean, refreshing with a delicate flora aroma. On sale now.
