We had an awesome time at the Blacksmiths Arms. We went for a family lunch, and watched a bit of the darts on the screens. The chicken meals were cooked to perfection. We had a minor slip up with one of the orders but that was quickly rectified. And they have done an excellent job of catering for people with food allergies/intolerances.

Food and service below average. Floor dirty with spillages, I nearly slipped while walking to a table. I was told 4 times that my dog was not allowed in the pub after 8pm. Strange rule I thought. I asked for water for my dog, as I could not find a dog bowl when I looked around. The waitress said she would bring one. When my food arrived I asked again and was told to go outside a find a stack of bowls and water. It would have been helpful if they brought me a bowl since my food had arrived. Sunday night at 8pm was quiet. Some staff were standing around. When I went outside leaving the warm pizza on the table I found a stack of bowls floating in dirty water! I ordered a Handmade stone oven pizza. The menu described as handmade and thin and crispy. The Worst pizza I’ve ever had. The pastry was soggy and thick and it was drowned in red sauce and was very acidic in flavour and not well cooked. It was not a handmade pizza! It was not worth the money. It tasted and looked like the kind of pizza get in fast food outlet trucks, not what you’d expect from a so called gastro pub. St Albans is spoilt for choice when it comes to pubs. I won’t be going back, one of the most disappointing meals I’ve ever had.

Just popped in to do a bit of work and ordered from their new Menu. Amazing food. The Bollywood burger was out this world. Amazing pub, bags of character, a brilliant garden and service which was super friendly.

I came here for a bottomless brunch Saturday which was one of the best iv been too. Glasses were never dry Kiran our waitress was amazing polite and couldn't do enough for us. And for the price of the brunch was worth every penny. I had the chicken burger and Fries which was also very good, will definitely coming back here. Thanks for a great time guys

Lunch for 3 on a Tuesday earlier this month. A very very warm welcome from the staff. All were chatty and friendly, very helpful with drink and food choices on each visit to the bar. The burgers were absolutely gorgeous, great beer and wine too. We used to live in St Albans and in fact were the managers of this pub in the late 90's, so pleased to see it still well managed. Hope to return again soon & definitely recommend.
