I wandered in yesterday looking for a drink.
There were five hand pumps (always an excellent sign). Most were serving various McMullen ales, low in alcohol, but high in flavour and refreshment. As I was driving I stuck to a half - and wished I had come by coach or train.
It sits on the side of a river just a short distance from the remains of Hertford Castle.
In the summer or when it is warm (as yesterday) it must be wonderful to sit beside the water, eating one of the wide range of burgers on offer.

A picturesque pub packed with McMullen heritage on the River Lea, just a moment from the centre of Hertford, the Woolpack's the ideal haven from the crowds. Step through the glass lobby to discover a roaring log fire, historic timbers and good old-fashioned comfort with a stylish modern twist – featuring historic artefacts ...

Attentive service - fixed mistakes quickly with no issues. Good food - generous portions. Liked the salt and thyme fries. Caesar salad was lovely and fresh. Would be great in the summer when you can sit outside by the river.

We always have a pre-dinner drink here and it’s always the perfect venue. We had a drink in another pub last night, but regretted it and were soon back. Won’t be making that mistake again! Haven’t sampled the food menu, but the Espresso Martini is always spot on!
