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.
