We also have various takeaways ( Chinese, Indian, fish and chips, pizza and kebabs) as well as Hunters Meet hotel with its bar and restaurant and two village pubs both of which serve excellent food.
Every summer the Hatfield Heath Festival is held on the main green. The festival was started in June 1969 to pay for rebuilding of the village hall and its upkeep. After a gap of nine years the festival was revived. Its main purpose now is to bring the community together for a happy fun weekend.
To the north of the village is Hatfield Forest, the best surviving example in Britain of an almost complete Royal Hunting Forest. The forest is open to the public and covers 1,049 acres (4 km2) of woodland, grassland with trees, lake and marsh.

-Please enquire regards children under five we worry about little ones hurting themselves as we have a lot of glass in the house, ie Kitchen and dining area.
