The pub is open plan and the seating areas extend down either side of the central bar. The wooden floor and furniture reflects a more modern kind of traditional than some of the older pubs in St Albans. There is a small beer garden to the right of the pub.

The Farmers Boy is the base for the Verulam Brewery which is now brewing again after being closed for a while. As well as their own excellent beers other selections on the bar were from Wadworths and JHB on my last visit.

Food is served from 12:00 noon to 9:00pm on most days (until earlier on Thursday and Sunday). I’ve not eaten here but the food does look and smell good though.

The pub has a lively atmosphere in the evenings and at weekends and is great last stop on the way back to the station after a pub crawl of St Albans.

There is live music every Thursday night.
