Welcome to The Flag

Watford's favourite live music local

You won't find another pub in Watford that's as grand as The Flag. And you're unlikely to find food and drink for such great value either.

But they're not the only reasons this impressive old building has become such a local institution. We're the most established music venue in Watford, with live bands gracing our stage most weekends. We're also famous for our pub gardens, pool tables and imposing Victorian features, amongst which you'll find a down-to-earth crowd enjoying a bit of banter over a pint or two of cask ale.
