The village boasts a large number of pubs compared with its relatively small size, in common with nearby St. Albans, which reputedly has the highest density of pubs per population size in the U.K. Starting from the southern end of the High Street, the pubs are: The Colney Fox (formerly The WaterSplash Hotel); The Bull; The Green Dragon; The White Lion; The Golden Lion; The Pear and Partridge (formerly the White Horse); and The King’s Head. The Swan pub stood on the northern side of the river for over 300 years before its demolition in the early 1970s. The Bell pub (on the roundabout at the Southern extreme of the village) sadly became a McDonalds restaurant in the 1990s.
