Built in 1838, The Silver Cup is well and truly woven into the heritage of Harpenden. Over 150 years on, The Silver Cup retains its charm & character whilst adopting an environment that embodies the life and soul of the community and the people within it. 

In 2020, The Silver Cup came under new management with an aim of maintaining the traditions of a classic British public house whilst bringing a contemporary twist to the food and drink offering. 

Situated on the corner of Harpenden common, in bowling distance of the cricket club and a five minute walk from Harpenden high-street; The Silver Cup is truly positioned in the heart of the community and provides the perfect spot for an afternoon drink, fabulous lunch or dinner and if you fancy staying longer, we have 5 letting rooms upstairs. 

Owned by two local lads, Matthew and Michael, with a mutual love and experience of all things food, drink and  hospitality. 

We look forward to welcoming you.


Our People


Matthew Reeder

Being a local lad, I attended Roundwood Park School. I had

a passion for eating at an early age which developed into

a passion for cooking. After graduating from Westminster Catering College, I travelled Australia to broaden my skill set and palate. When returning home I ventured into the smoke

of London, where I worked in several high-end restaurants from the East to West. This helped to evolve my  dedication towards seasonal British ingredients. By working closely with suppliers

I believe that we can put fantastic produce on the plate

for our guests to enjoy!
