The Bricklayers Arms

Flaunden, Hertfordshire

The Bricklayers Arms in Flaunden, Hertfordshire, is a stunning looking building with an equally stunning menu on offer inside.

A multi-award-winning venue, the 18th century pub is nearby the rolling hills of the Chess Valley and in easy reach of London and the Home Counties.

The freehouse has been under the ownership of the Michaels family for over 17 years and head chef Miroslav Shelling has brought the venue multiple foodie awards during his tenure.

It is also close to the Warner Brothers Studio, Harry Potter World and the Grove Hotel, so an ideal stop off if visiting one such attraction.

Menu highlights have included home cured pancetta and brisket with aged cheddar, honey, walnuts and sourdough bread; duo of duck breast and confit leg with pink grapefruit and orange jus; and tonka mousse with white chocolate coating, sea salt caramel, sweet dough and blackcurrant sorbet.
