Welcome to The Engineer

Harpenden Hertfordshire

Built in 1862/1865, The Engineer was originally called “The Bird in Hand” but has since been known as The Engineer when the railway from London to Bedford was built in 1868. 

With a lively and sociable atmosphere, The Engineer boasts a main bar area, function/dining room, family room suitable for children and dogs, sports bar and large garden and smoking area. 

We have a wide range of lagers, cask ales, ciders and craft beers on draught. With an extensive wine, gin and spirit list too, we’re sure you’ll find something just for you here at The Engineer.

We have an incredible menu full of lovely dishes including starter sharing boards, a selection of different burgers and homemade pies.  Don’t forget to swing by for our Sunday roasts, served with all the trimmings. Contact us to make a booking to avoid disappointment!
