A little pub history

Dating back to the 1800's, The Fish And Eels was originally owned by the Christie family brewery who used it to sell Christy's Hoddesdon-brewed ales. We have always been popular as a riverside inn, with numerous landlords throughout the years - the most notorious being the Reverend Samuel Thackery who, after being dismissed from his chaplaincy, took to inn keeping instead.

Make a day of it

Dating to the early 1800s, our lovely riverside inn is well placed for long country walks. Lea Valley Park is an extensive conservation area that offers many water sports, boating, walking and cycling.
