Squaremeal Review of The Hoops ?

The hamlet of Perry Green is now synonymous with British sculpture & plays host to the Henry Moore Foundation, with acres of monumental exhibits attracting an arty crowd. Moore lived here & regularly used the Hoops as his local, often in company with high-profile guests such as Lauren Bacall & TS Eliot. Following a revamp, it’s now in the hands of Mark & Lowri Williams, who did great things at the Groes Inn in Wales. Mark’s cooking takes its cue from the British larder, whether he is cooking a Sunday roast of Middle White pork loin or tackling a special such as monkfish & fennel stew; he also dishes up burgers, battered haddock & sweet treats such as clementine & almond cake. This is an appealing package, complete with locally brewed ales & ciders, alfresco BBQs & a rustic interior stuffed with references to Henry Moore himself.

My family and I were ungraciously refused service here on Bank Holiday Monday. We drove all the way to this place for a country pub lunch as my mother had been before for a party and it was a nice location. We had checked the website which clearly stated the opening times on Bank Holiday Mondays were '12 noon to 4pm for food and drinks', so made the journey there. We arrived at 2.50pm and were told the kitchen had closed. The staff ungraciously tried to justify this. Very disappointing and...

The Hoops is a very genuine, pretty and highly atmospheric gastropub in what seems deepest Hertfordshire, but is in essence a quick 10-15min drive from Stansted Airport. Now there are a few of these, but The Hoops has something very special about it. The entire property is very pretty and well run, but the kitchen deserves a special notice as there is a real sense of passion about the food that is produced and served here. The cook has his own herb, salad and vegetable garden out back and the result...

Went here for Mothers Day, 3rd April 2010. The restaurant has been taken over my the Henry Moore Foundation and reflects his art. Beautiful setting and a light and airy restaurant. Greeted by friendly staff and sat a nice table. From here things went from bad to worse. Service was appalling one of our dinners came out and we waited for the other two to arrive for at least ten minutes, therefore food got cold. Staff were wandering outside with plates of food to find the respective customers and then...
