The Fox and Duck gastro-pub at Therfield, a former finalist in the Hertfordshire Life Food & Drink Awards, is celebrating being named as a TripAdvisor Travellers’ Choice 2020 Best of the Best award winner

TripAdvisor said: “Congratulations to The Fox and Duck on being a Travellers’ Choice Best of the Best winner. You’re part of an exclusive group - in the top 1% of businesses on TripAdvisor from around the world.

“Each year we comb through reviews, ratings, and saves from Travellers everywhere, and use that infomation to award the very best. Winners of the 2020 Travellers’ Choice Awards should be proud of this distinguished recognition.

“Award winners are beloved for their exception service and quality. Not only are these winners well deserving, they are also a great source of inspiration for travellers and diners as the world begins to venture out again.”

In a statement on Facebook, a spokesperson for The Fox and Duck said: “We want to thank everyone who has left us a review on TripAdvisor, and to all our customers, regulars, friends, fans, and staff - past and present. This is a real honour, and one that has been achieved through a lot of hard work from a lot of people.”

The pub, under landlord Ivan Titmuss, reopened following the Covid-19 closures on 4 July with a new menu highlighting its reputation for offering something different.

Highlights include pork tomahawk with chorizo, partridge and pheasant breasts with truffle mash and black treacle and juniper sauce, and Dover sole with crab cake and lobster bisque.
