This attractive 16th century country pub on the green has white weatherboarding and a red peg-tiled roof in the style typical of Hertfordshire villages. Inside it has timbered beams, the original brick floor and large open fireplaces. The Horns is an award winning pub with a reputation for good food and good ale and it holds an annual beer festival at the end of April.

Weatherboarding became popular in Hertfordshire and Essex in the 18th century and although the local tradition was to tar it or paint it black, most are now painted white. Many of the early settlers in the USA came from this area and it’s reckoned that they took the technique with them and advanced it to create the clapperboarding seen across New England.

The pub is haunted by Walter Clibbons, a ne’re do well who was set upon and killed by villagers after he robbed a local youth.

Bulls Green is a hamlet just south of the village of Datchworth.
