Hertford Tavern Hertford Place Did the name come from the Earls of Hertford ? In 1840 an inquest took place at the Hertford Arms, while in 1850 it was listed as the BEERHOUSE, Hertford Place. The pub was rebuilt in 1939. It is said that for many years it was called the Hertford Arms, and became Hertford Tavern on its sale from Ind Coope to Ansells. On its rebuilding, its cellar was found to be of 'great age'. In 1962 the surrounding houses had been demolished to make way for the Butts Radial Spur and for redevelopment. Yet the pub remained until 1986, when, Ansells, having spent a fortune on the lounge of the nearby Hen and Chickens, decided that the Hertford was redundant. It is now ironically a marriage guidance counselling centre.
