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.

Customer reviews for The Crooked Chimney
((((( 14 July 2017 by Richard Hill from Guernsey
2nd visit in 9 days. We went first for a lunch time meal with friends, the reception and service was excellent, really made us welcome. There was a good choice on the menu, with piazza's, burgers, traditional favourites and also a la carte on offer as well as the lunch time three course choice. Our choices were well presented, ample portions and freshly cooked with a good selection of vegetables included in the price. Overall we were all very satisfied with everything, and would we go back, Yes, and we did, this time with family on our recommendation. This time we went in the evening and everything was as good as the first visit and I was relieved the family was very impressed as well. Really good value for money. Although it would need a drive to get there it is in a good location with plenty of parking and well worth the effort, but book up first as it is very popular.
