The Rabbit's Foot is embedded in a Hertfordshire village which though only six miles from Stevenage could be in a different world. Good country food is the in thing here, served in the bar area or in the picturesque olde-worlde restaurant, complete with open fire and ancient wooden beams. Hosts Debs and Broni keep three real ales and the usual other tipple for their pub customers but many people, many from some distances, now go for the menu, where rabbit (naturally), usually slow braised in mustard, white wine and cream, is just one choice. Others could include sausage cassoulet or chicken and leek steamed pudding (not pie), several fish dishes and a vote-winning chicken and red chilli spaghetti dish. Wines, unusually these days, are almost all French, with house red and white at £12.95. Desserts can include plum tart with home-made plum conserve, chocolate and blackberry bread and butter pudding or chocolate pudding with a liquid middle. Our group was there on a slow night so service (by Debs) was very attentive, though there's no reason to suppose that's out of the ordinary. Prices for main courses range from £14.50 for the signature rabbit to £8.95 for a substantial two-cheese ploughman's plate, with puddings at £4.95 - well within Hertfordshire limits. We liked it.
