    The surrounding was great. Menu interesting and varied . We had an unfortunate end to our evening as a fight broke out in the restaurant between guests. The staff handled well, but did make us feel very uncomfortable as we had a young child and elderly relative.

    It was thoroughly enjoyable. It was a great shame there were not more people. The staff who served us were very good, but I had heard from others that some staff are inexperienced. We shall return.

    this rural pub, literally arisen like a phoenix, from the ashes of its predecessor. Well worth the drive into rural Herts. Very pleasant staff, and chefs that know their business. The outside area is massive and fine in good weather - heaters may be installed for Winer. Inside roomy but noise level very high - all wood and hard surfaces.

    Beautiful sunshine assisted by great Hadham First beer, asaparagus and french fries...don't judge. Plenty of space. Caulifower steak roast. Can't fault it, more vegan options would be the icing on the cake.

    The Catherine Wheel is a stylish gastro pub in a picturesque rural setting. The food and drink was delicious and beautifully served. The newly refurbished decor is very attractive and the place it has a great ambiance. We went for dinner on a chilly evening, but if it had been warmer the outside space looked very inviting. We really enjoyed our dining experience and will return again soon, probably for their highly acclaimed Sunday lunch

    There was a nice atmosphere in the Catherine Wheel when we arrived. We were seated in the dining room and as it filled out you could not hear the conversation between you at the table and had to shout at each other. Very expensive for the meal and was definitely not worth the money, although the service from the young waiters/waitresses was very polite and helpful.

    Hi Sue, Thank you for your review We are very sorry to hear that the noise level affected your enjoyment of the evening. It is unfortunate we were unaware of your discomfort as we would have been happy to relocate your party to a quieter table. We are a locally owned independent pub/restaurant who had been open for 4 weeks. We provide high quality, freshly cooked and locally sourced food. Our price reflects the provenance of our food. We will strive to do better. Best regards Tom C Owner

    First visit since reopening and we were really impressed. Lovely menu and we both really enjoyed our meals from the specials. The children’s menu looks very good too. Would be nice to see a bar/lunch menu if eating outside with the children.

    We ate inside and the hard surfaces do contribute to a slightly echoey atmosphere but this didn't in any way detract from the Sunday roast which is one of the best we have ever tasted.

    Lovely, fresh new look. Even toilets good and tastefully decorated. Menu was quite limited for vegetarians but its only eventually opened and predisposition this is a point to take on board for new management. Starters & desserts quite pricey too but all locally sourced food of a very high standard in lovely surroundings. We'd definitely return.
