Restaurant description

Named after Lady Katherine Ferrers, the highwaywoman active in the area during the 17th century, The Wicked Lady is a refurbished country-style pub serving modern British cuisine with a Mediterranean influence. With vaulted ceilings, leather armchairs & a sleek bar, this pub is a rustic retreat in the quaint village of Wheathampstead.

With chefs given the opportunity to train at cookery schools in Spain and Italy, The Wicked Lady menu features modern signature recipes made using the finest ingredients. As well as creative daily-changing specials, favourites include king prawn, crab and chorizo linguine, or spit-roasted chicken with lemon & garlic confit. A kids’ menu and Sunday roasts also feature, and desserts include rich vanilla and chocolate gelato with home-baked cookies.

The result of a treasured partnership with Rothschild wine merchants, the cellar showcases many fine wines, while token real ales and premium spirits are found at The Wicked Lady bar. Nostalgic British nibbles and sharing platters bursting with international flavours offer more laidback dining.

Close to St Albans, The Wicked Lady in Wheathampstead is an 11-minute drive from Harpenden Rail Station.

    Very nice restaurant, good vibe, prompt service and excellent food. My starter was mushrooms on toast with a delicious creamy sauce, followed by fishcakes which were piping hot and with a tasty pea puree. Coffee was not so hot but don't let that put you off! I'm a regular visitor.

    On arrival a female front of house staff was very rude. Our two year old son was asleep in his pushchair and she was very unhelpful in finding us a table. We were happy to wait, the issue was her rude and abrupt attitude and manner, especially as my wife and I were being polite and patient. The experience did get better but first impressions count and we will not be returning.

    Party of eight all opted for the Fixed Pice menu. Friendly service and good food. We will go again.

    The service was very slow and it took over an hour for us to get our dinner. When dinner arrived one of the orders was wrong so one person had to wait an additional 15 minutes to get their dinner. My daughter is vegetarian and there were very few choices. The food was however excellent.
