Chieftain PH

By Roger Filler

The Woodman PH (later The Chieftain)
Welwyn Garden City Library

The Chieftain pub in Cole Green Lane may have been demolished and its future in jeopardy while owners, the Hertford brewing family of McMullen’s decide on its future, (June 09), but the pub predates the Garden City and was once the village pub of the self-contained community of Hatfield Hyde.
Prior to 1978 it was called The Woodman. At one point it could boast the longest bar in the county and the only stretch of freehold land in the town.
