Our Place & Yours
We opened The Beech House in St Albans because we’re passionate about neighbourhood pubs. The kind that sell fresh food and a great pint. Where you feel completely at home. Where you can pop in when it suits you. After work, before work, to do work. To catch up with the family, or to impress a date. For your favourite coffee or a cheeky cocktail. The choice is broad as well as bold; from your full-English fry up to super food salad, authentic Italian Esposito pizza to a perfectly grilled steak. Just the way you like it. Nibbles, sharers, roasts and proper home comforts; fresh and sustainable, cooked in an open kitchen. It’s our house and we’d love you to feel that it’s yours too.
Plus, with super-fast wi-fi throughout our home, you’re always be connected to those you want to be.
What Our Guests Say
Been here twice now, and food is consistently good. Fresh, hot, tasty, generous - everything in our group of 12 looked fabulous. Wide menu which would suit most tastes and appetites with daily specials. Service as expected and is fine. Music can be quite loud although a good atmosphere. Like it here - will definitely go back.
I have been time and time again for dates, large family meals, work meetings, pop-ins, snacks and drinks and have always had a good experience. Food is delicious - the lamb or smashed sweet potato salads for example are huge and moorish! The pizzas are fab, vegetarians are catered for and the atmosphere is usually great. Would definitely recommend and will keep returning!
I went here on Friday night and can’t speak highly enough of Harri who led a cocktail making class for myself and some friends. He was extremely friendly and knowledgeable, and went out of his way to ensure we had a fun night. Also the pizzas we had from here were delicious. I will definitely be going back again soon.
Kids love their milkshakes and halloumi fries, they're amazing! Staff always happy to help in general or resolve any issues without quibble. Laid back friendly atmosphere. I had the mushroom pasta on a previous visit and it was out of this world - great veggie option!
The Oakman Inns Family
Oakman Inns & Restaurants was founded in 2005. Our vision was to create an environment where like-mined people could come and enjoy some great food and drinks whilst catching up with friends, family, neighbours and colleagues.
We quickly won a place in the hearts and minds of local people through our support of local sports teams and community events. Then we started winning awards too. Today we work hard to replicate this recipe in each and every new pub that we open.
