Readers have shared some of their favourite pubs they are eager to visit this weekend.

This weekend (July 4) pubs, restaurants and bars will reopen across the country for the first time since the coronavirus lockdown as social distancing measures ease.

Ch Supt Liversidge, from Hertfordshire Constabulary, has asked for anyone visiting pubs to "remain vigilant".

But many people throughout lockdown have been missing pubs and are likely to attend this weekend, so we asked readers what pub they have missed most.

Here were some of the popular contenders.

1. The Three Crowns, Bushey

Watford Observer:

This old-style country pub located on High Road, has been called a local favourite due to its large garden.

There is an extensive menu and before lockdown there was a weekly quiz which would raise money for charities in the community.

It also has a pool table, dart board, a selection of games to play and books to read.
