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).

Autumn Tasting Panel...
The summer appears to be a distant memory and our Chefs are turning their attention to the new Autumn Menu. It'll soon be the height of the game season with wild duck, partridge and pheasant available; Aubergines and beetroots will make way for pumpkins, sprouts, cabbage and leeks; Mussels, skate, clams and scallops will be at their best. So late October we'll be looking for another team of ZEST! Club Tasters to join our panel and cast a customers eye over our Autumn offerings. To take part just go to the contacts page and simply enter the words "Tasting Panel" in the text box and we'll put your name in the hat!
