Farmer’s Boy Brickendon

Situated just off Brickendon Green and a stone’s throw from Broxbourne Woods, the Farmer’s Boy is the archetypal country village pub.  The ‘Dogs Welcome’ sign in the window drew us in and a gently burning open fire was the first hint that we’d make a good choice, boosted by a warm welcome extended by the bar staff.

The lunch menu is fairly compact but offers a selection of traditional favourites and a small range of sandwiches.  I opted to have a starter instead of a main meal and jolly glad I did.  The very generous portion of garlic cream mushrooms was accompanied by toasted ciabatta and a crisp rocket garnish and well washed down by some rather lovely Pear & Elderflower lemonade.  The Cider Rarebit ordered by the other half though looked a bit mean, lacking in colour and was apparently dry to taste, but the straw fries that came with it were piping hot and perfect to the bite. Service was faultless – quick, efficient and very friendly.

There is an extended dinner menu which looked very appealing and they serve traditional Sunday Roasts from just £12.95.

Great location & great service – we’d definitely be tempted to visit again…The pub has some really positive reviews on TripAdvisor and table bookings are available on the website The Farmer’s Boy
