Well worth a visit

The Hermit has always been an attractive pub, but poorly managed. Now under new dynamic management, it has reached its full potential as a high quality gastro pub. Efficient friendly service and an appealing menu stylishly delivered. Highly recommended.

Last time we came here this was a "pub grub" restaurant with a huge menu, it is now much more up market with a short, but very good menu. The pub has undergone a transformation and is decorated in the modern shabby chic style which produces a pleasant light and airy feel. We were greeted as we entered and found... More

I have been several times to this restaurant and each time I eat here I wonder why I bother going to any other restaurant of the same ilk in the Hitchin area. Consistently good food, great wine, good service, good value, professional and friendly hosts and a nice setting. What more can you ask for !

We were recommended this gastro pub and fortunately it did not disappoint as it was a 30 minute drive for us. The pub has both a large car park and outside seating area and the pub itself has been very tastefully decorated. The staff are delightful, Anna of which there are 4 was so knowledgeable and helpful in my decision... More

Ate here with a colleague. We both had scallops for a starter which were perfectly cooked and I had fish and chips as a main course which I did not particularly enjoy. Too much batter and so much mint in the peas it overpowered everything else - also I requested malt vinegar which never arrived. My colleague had better luck... More

Recommended by a lot of friends but seemed quite grubby to me, especially door through to kitchen area and what you could see of tiling on walls. Entrance from the car park was untidy and dark and uninviting. Food ok if you like cardboard Yorkshires with your roast and over minted peas with the fish. Generous portion of pate though... More

Very good meal, with excellent service at this tucked away country pub. You will need to book here, as the place is busy most times, and it is easy to see why with the great food on offer. The menu appears to change regularly, with a variety of options to cover all tastes. They don't overwhelm with choice, and instead... More

We ate Sunday lunch here recently and the food was delicious. Daniel the waiter was very friendly and attentive and went the extra mile to make our children feel special.

Very pleasant three course dinner. Good service, very helpful staff. Three of us had soup to start, when we asked for bread we were told they did not have any ! This was seven o'clock in the evening, strange time to run out.
