The Woodman Inn is a family run pub, owned by the Johnson’s since 1985. We are situated in the heart of the Hertfordshire countryside and surrounded by sweeping fields. This makes us the destination pub in the area. You’ll receive a warm welcome all year round, enhanced in the winter months by our well kept open log fire.

Steeped in history, the thatched part of the pub dates back to the 17th century, and the local area was used as an air base for the Americans during the second world war (see history & local area for more information).

Customers come to The Woodman Inn for our friendly and personal service.
We can cater for small family occasions and business lunches, to large weddings for up to 200 of your nearest and dearest.

We have had a recent refurbishment, ready for 2016, which has made use of all of the different areas we have. We have now separated the thatched bar area from the new family dining room and we have redecorated the old ‘Green room’ and made it into a beautiful adult dining area. Children under 12 are not permitted in the bar and the adult dining area. The family dining room has a soft play area, a pool table and games machines – lots to keep everyone entertained! We have extended our opening and food service times, so please see the updated information.
