The Fish and Eels, a country pub in Hoddesdon

We’ve got everything you need from a country pub near you. 

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.

Our menus are full of hearty favourites and country pub classics, as well as our seasonal dishes, and we’ll be ready with a well-stocked bar, including cask ales, fine wines and British gin to suit very taste - which will taste all the better when enjoyed either in our beautiful gardens or by our crackling log fires.

Charming country pubs in lovely locations

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.

Whether you’re out walking your dog or just exploring the local area, there’s always plenty to do around The Fish and Eels.
