AS OF THE 20TH MARCH WE ARE CLOSED

It is with great sadness we have called last orders in all our pubs for the time being to support the fight against COVID-19. But don’t worry, we are busy working on opening our doors again with the safety of our teams and customers as our number one priority. While we continue to follow government guidelines, we’re getting excited for the day we can meet again and raise a glass in the pub.

Until then, stay safe, and don’t forget us!

The Five Horseshoes

 

OUR VIRTUAL PUB IS OPEN!

While our pubs are closed, we’ve decided to open a virtual pub, The Lock Inn. We know many of our customers are feeling cut-off from their friends and for some a visit to the pub is the only social contact they will have in a day. The Lock Inn aims to help tackle loneliness and isolation by offering activities and entertainment to encourage interaction. We’re starting with a WEEKLY INTERACTIVE QUIZ on Wednesdays at 6pm and ROCK AND ROLL BINGO every Friday at the same time, with more events and community support activities planned over the coming weeks.

Welcome to the

Five Horseshoes

 

Little Berkhamsted's origins however go back to a Roman-era travellers site which was on the present spot of the Grade II listed Five Horseshoes pub. The village is most notable for the Grade II* listed building Stratton's Tower an excellently preserved five-storey observatory built for John Stratton in 1789 a retired admiral who wished to see ships in the Thames but wished to do so privately as a non-conformist. Just five minutes walk from The Five Horseshoes is the Grade II* Little Berkhamsted House an 18th century house notable for its stately Greek Dorich porch.Just four miles from The Five Horseshoes lie the remains of historic Hertford Castle. The castle was first constructed around 911 and fortified with a motte and bailey in the following century. The castle has been a favourite of many royals in particular Edward III and Elizabeth I. Hertford Castle has also hosted the English Parliament who met here in 1563 when London was under the grip of the Bubonic plague. The town has also had famed residents like anthropologist Alfred Russel Wallace and Jane Wenham whose controversial conviction altered the issue of witchcraft in England.An attractive historic pub with pleasant vistas of the Hertfordshire countryside The Five Horseshoes is an ideal location to pause for great pub food relaxing Sunday lunches fine wines and refreshing cask ales.
