Low quality

The whole place looks very run down, it hasn’t changed much. Use to work there 9 years ago with horrible staff that mistreated me, poor payment and poor treatment

Fantastic location. Can be very busy in summer, so food can take a while to be served.

Great Local Cafe & Venue

This is a great local cafe in the middle of Verulamium Park that regularly holds events like Easter Egg Hunts and does kids parties. We had our childrens party there in the Function Room which was great value as they do all the food and tidying and we combined it with a trip in to the park for the kids.

Highly recommended for a visit, child friendly and a great location.

Little Gem !

This is a lovely place in the middle of hertfordshire's best park - remember this when you visit in peak times as everyone has the same idea! Great quality freshly made (homemade!) varied menu, always on hand. Amazing staff considering the parents ( read wild kids) they get . No where else like it in St Albans to match the quality of food.

a fair review

I think the other review is rather unfair. This is a very busy cafe indeed and is certainly not the cleanest however considering the number of children who eat there and the number of people trapsing mud into the inn all day I wouldn't expect anything different. The positives, for a parent, are that the Inn is family friendly, there are plenty of highchairs, the staff are friendly and the Inn is open very early in the morning, even on Sundays. If it was so bad it wouldn't be so busy.
