Surrounded by the picturesque countryside, particularly Brocket Park, The Crooked Chimney was previously a charming farmhouse with a distinguishing crooked chimney atop its roof, which remains. Its pastoral heart continues though, through traditional British pub meals, its welcoming hearth-fire and the appealing oak and cobbled brick design.

Hearty Sunday roasts and trusty British dishes head The Crooked Chimney menu, and a range just for kids offers mini versions of pub favourites. Signature Vintage pies offer fillings like beef & merlot with buttered peas, while The Crooked Chimney ‘Vintage classics’ menu includes lemon & garlic-roasted chicken with seasoned chips.

Paying homage to the Great British pub, the Vintage Inn bar stock includes cask-conditioned beers, real ales and a meticulously compiled wine list. Thirst-quenching offerings include seasonal non-alcoholic cocktails and freshly-pressed juices, and rich coffee is brewed freshly throughout the day.

In the village of Lemsford, The Crooked Chimney is just 7 minutes’ drive from Welwyn Garden City Train Station.

    Seabass very good. Although duck was on the menu, the waitress said there was none left even though we had a 7pm reservation without many tables with customers eating.
