The Prae Wood Arms

St Albans

We will be back with you on Wednesday 2nd December

Following the Government’s announcement, we find ourselves in Tier 2 which means we can happily open our doors again from next Wednesday 2nd December, albeit with a few restrictions, but thank goodness we’re able to welcome you back to the pub!

The new guidelines mean that we’re only able to accept bookings from single households inside the pub and up to 6 people from mixed households for those brave enough to sit outside. Also, as much as we wish you could just pop in for a pint, for now, we’re only allowed to serve alcohol when you eat with us. Last orders are at 10pm, so we’ll be ringing bell around 9.45pm and we need to ensure you’re fed, watered and heading safely home by 11pm.

Our team will be back together again from the 2nd, so until then please bear with us if you have any questions or booking enquiries.

Thanks as ever for your support, we look forward to seeing you all soon.

Welcome

It's hard to believe that when it was built for Lady Frances Cooke Grimston in 1838 she referred to it as a 'little cottage'. This beautiful building has been lovingly transformed into our 'little pub'.

The stone terrace has been extended to become the perfect spot for Al Fresco dining, overlooking the lawns that gently slope down towards the River Ver at the bottom of the gardens. (Although we say so ourselves) we feel we offer a gorgeous environment to dine in, either in spacious light rooms or tucked away into the cosier nooks and crannies.

Our menus are created daily from fresh, local produce, dreamt up by our talented team of chefs who cater for lighter appetites as well as those wanting hearty British pub classics. Equally it's a great place for a drink, with the bar sitting at the heart of all things, offering a haven for those who want to try a myriad of fine whiskies, gins and real ales.

Menus

Our passion lies in finding quality fresh ingredients and preparing, cooking and presenting them in a modern but unpretentious way. Our menus have a spine of classic British dishes complemented by more exotic influences from other parts of the world. We upload them to our web site each day before 12 noon so that you may peruse them at your leisure.
