Likes:
The staff are very capable and in the main, organised. They are very friendly and efficient particularly the young lady who was working in the restaurant on the Saturday evening.
Dislikes:
The accomodation is perfect for a short stay and cleaned to a good level, although in our room there was quite a large stain on the carpet and the toilet roll holder was missing in the bathroom.

Welcome to The Brocket Arms. This delightful country inn was built in the 14th century and retains all the traditional features one would hope to find therein.

The bars and restaurant with their low ceilings, oak beams and inglenook fireplaces are full of character, where guests can enjoy delicious, seasonal, good quality food, together with a wide range of real ales and wines.

Lunch is served every day 12pm to 2.30pm. Evening Meals are served from 7pm to 9pm every day except Monday and Sunday. Bar Meals are available lunch times and early evenings except Sunday (6.30pm - 9pm). Traditional, charming, high quality accommodation is available with 5 double ensuite rooms and one twin room with its own bathroom. Large Family Garden with Play area for Children.

The History Ayot St. Lawrence is one of the loveliest and historic villages in Hertfordshire.

The Brocket Arms was originally the monastic quarters for the Norman church until the Reformation. Legend has it that a priest was tried and hanged in the building and that it has been haunted by the affable character ever since. In the village the attractive georgian Ayot House was once famous as Britain’s only silk farm. The ruined Norman church was replaced in 1778 by the existing Palladian church. Ayot St. Lawrence is well known as the home of George Bernard Shaw, who lived there for 40 years until his death in 1950.

His house, Shaw's Corner, now belongs to the National Trust. All enquiries to The Brocket Arms.

Ayot St. Lawrence is only 25 miles from Central London and is accessible from the M1 and A1M motorways, as well as by rail from St Albans, Harpenden and Welwyn Garden City stations.

Our accommodation is finished to a very high quality. Each room has a wealth of exposed beams reflecting the age of the property and all include TVs, DVDs, MP3 connection, tea/coffee making facilities and hair dryers.

We serve modern British Food simple and elegant with exquisite flavours.
