“I have been running pubs for a long time and nothing like this has ever happened before.

“It is very disappointing and we are trying to just get back to normal.

“We have a new menu launching today and it is business as usual.”

Burglars stole the cash draw from the till, a small safe, beer and a quantity of cash.

•Anyone with information is asked to contact Hertfordshire police via the non-emergency number 101, quoting crime reference 41/67641/18
