This former restaurant and bakery in the shadow of St Albans Cathedral has been converted into a venue with an unashamedly modern atmosphere but a reassuringly traditional welcome. Split over two levels with access from Heritage Close or Waxhouse Gate, the main bar is downstairs and boasts an array of beers across a range of styles. Three cask ales and a dozen or more keg offerings showcase Mad Squirrel's full standard and seasonal range plus guest beers mainly from smaller craft brewers. All beers are available in third and two-third measures as well as pints and halves and there are cans and bottles available to take away. Pizzas and other bar snacks available.
