A hidden gem . A good menu made it very hard to choose what to have. We were a large group but service was good . No complaints.

Housed in a building dating back to 1776, The Cowper Arms is a restored country pub & restaurant serving a seasonal menu of unfussy British food. With a large beer garden for al fresco dining outside, and wooden ceiling beams, rustic furniture & fireplaces inside, this pub is a cosy place to enjoy a hearty homemade meal.

Sourcing ingredients from trusted local suppliers, The Cowper Arms menu features wholesome recipes based around the garden, land and sea. Sample hand-pressed burgers, beef & ale pie with cardamom carrots, or sea bass with potato gnocchi, while old-school puddings include warming crumbles, custard-lathered sponges and decadent brownies. Not forgetting younger diners, a kids’ menu includes miniature versions of British classics.

A partnership with the celebrated Rothschild wine merchants means The Cowper Arms cellar is stocked full with an eclectic list of world wines, while indulgent wine flights allow guests to sample a variety of bins. Seasonal beers and barrel-kept ales also feature, as well as thirst-quenching cocktails and rich coffees.

The Cowper Arms in Letty Green is a 7-minute drive from Hertford North Rail Station.

    Rather noisy.

    Service was pleasant, with a choice of seating on arrival. Seating comfortable and lighting adequate. Menu choice is varied and food was cooked and presented well. I particularly liked the pea & ham soup, very tasty. The sweets were liked by my guests. Having finished our meals, the table was cleared of used crockery but we were not encouraged to leave and were able to sit and continue our conversation until we were ready to go. The car park is large and well lit, and the pub has a good choice of beer.

    Welcoming, friendly venue. Although not on a main thoroughfare, it was still easy to find. The lunch booking was arranged as a reunion and the no-pressure approach from the staff to order and, at the end of the meal, to leave the table was absolutely perfect. We will use 'The Cowper Arms' again when we plan to meet up. It was ideal.

    Pleasant meal, well cooked. My rump of lamb tasty. The service was friendly. One grumble - I was given wine in a glass which was less than clean but a new glass was provided on request and an apology given.

    We've visited this pub many times, this time it was a Christmas booking for 7 people and we had to pre-book our food, slightly inconvenient but its becoming more common especially at busy times at lots of venues. Our party ordered from both the Christmas Menu and the Main Menu, Some mixed feedback on the Christmas Menu... ie vegetables not very nice to no complaints and all the meat dishes were good. Main Menu- Starters and mains all very good. Sweets- mainly good however the biscuits served with the cheeseboard were awful on both menu's. Beers and wines were very good. Service from the staff on a very busy night was very good. And no complaints about the bill at the end. Will definitely be going back.
