A little bit about us

A message from Freddy & Emily...

Having both grown up in Hitchin, we were so excited to have the opportunity to buy The Half Moon back in 2017, and take over this amazing pub that's become famous for its beer festivals! Since taking over our family has grown with the birth of our little boy in 2020. This pub is not just where we work but also our home and for this reason, is a very special place to us.

Formally known as the Newfound Inn it originally opened back in 1748. Since opening this old pub has changed a lot and has become a popular real ale pub, but one thing has always remained, our customers are everything to us and we are so proud to serve the local community of Hitchin.
