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.

    A very enjoyable experience. Unfortunately my chicken was burnt and overcooked. I won't choose that again, but apart from that the rest of the food was of a good standard and the service was excellent, if a little slow.

    As ever totally lovely food, good beer & great service.
    Unfortunately the booking service is rubbish, I tried to change my booking from 8 to 5 people twice & it was all automated. I also got through on another number they supplied & left a message again, but this was not updated. Very poor booking service. No chance of altering anything once you've booked it.

    A lovely pub/restaurant. A really nice experience - food was great and such good value for the money. Loved everything about it and will definitely be back. I went with my boss and some colleagues...he was so impressed that he took photo's of the menu and would be recommending the Cowper Arms...It was a such a lovely lunch ..really enjoyed it. Will certainly be booking to try the sunday roast experience.

    Did not like it here, I booked on line and there was a option, I chose Sunday roast for two. We were show to our table in a dimley lit area next to store room (we are two women of a certain age). Menus put on table and that was it - no explanation to how they operate or who was our waitress or if a waitress would be with us soon???? 5min plus later I decided to go to bar to order (assuming that’s what happens) only to be told to sit back down a waitress will come take order- couple mins later she did. However my friend (on her 72 birthday treat) ordered roast chicken, I roast pork - to be told it was belly pork - I have never been anywhere for a roast diner that the meat wasn’t carved slices of sold meat. So in annoyance had roast chicken that was still on bone which was ok as half a chicken on bone goes but again we expected slices of chicken. No carrots but parsnips (terrible selection in taste in root veg as not everyone likes parsnip or wilted spinach. I ate the chicken, my friend could only eat the breast - if the Yorkshire wasn’t so big maybe a bigger variety of veg could have been on plate.
    I was not please with the service, there wasn’t any. I had to take my one and only Pepsi back because ther was no gas in the carbonated water in the mix with the Pepsi syrup. I was flat and no fizz at all and when I said to girl at till her reply was ‘can you wait a min, I’m in the middle of this??’ I was now livid, said Don’t bother I’m leaving, she did not say anything so left the drink on bar I went back to table got my bag ( friend was so already set to leave with disgust) went to pay, got manager this time - just pointed out that my cola - that was STILL sitting on bar where I left it, she did not apologise in fact she just said ‘I don’t know why, it’s a set mix!’ However if you were a manager and valued your customers then you would not dismiss my complaint. As a manager she should have at least said it may be the gas that had gone. She took cost of coke off bill
