About our venue

The Young Pretender, formerly known as Millers, is easy to find being on the main road between Hemel Hempstead and Watford where the M1 meets the M25. We had a fresh new look Autumn 2012. Refurbished and with a brand new menu to choose from, inside is refreshingly traditional. We have two entrances one leading to the bar area and the other to the restaurant. There is a pleasant back area and fantastic decking area so you can enjoy a refreshing drink or meal throughout the summertime - we also have non smoking areas outside. We serve a daily carvery and main menu. The carvery offers up to three roasts and a selection of fresh seasonal vegetables. Alternatively, you can dine from the main menu, with cooked to order dishes prepared in-house using fresh seasonal produce. Open from early in the morning, it is ideal for business people or early risers to enjoy breakfast, sit with a cup of coffee and read the daily papers or do some work on the laptop. People passing through can book themselves in at the Premier Inn next door, which has everything you need for a good night's sleep. A relaxed, informal atmosphere, with a friendly helpful team awaits you at the Young Pretender.
