There is no doubt that there are many businesses we're looking forward to visiting again once lockdown is lifted.

Many of us are in need of a trim at the barbers or a new winter coat to cope with the snow.

But one thing many of us are missing most is the trip to our favourite watering hole.

It has been a difficult last 12 months for the hospitality industry and no businesses more so than pubs.

Coronavirus restrictions mean they've faced months of closures and even when the Government's Tier system was in place many had to remain closed.

But we are certain our publicans will be able to bounce back once it is safe to do so - we'll all be in need a pint that's for sure.

So where should you visit first after lockdown?

Here are the top pubs around Watford, according to TripAdvisor.
