Fab as always

Another great meal at the hermit. Food is consistently good, menu varies and produce is local. We had someone with dietary restrictions with us, they couldn't do enough to accommodate. despite it being around Christmas they happily offer options not on the menu.

Called in for lunch on a Tuesday - very peaceful and quiet, beautiful decor throughout. Gammon and chips, shredded lamb sandwich, chicken sandwich and beef sandwich were all thoroughly enjoyed. The highlight for me was the sticky toffee pudding - superb! Cannot give 5* because they had run out of the Eton mess, and another customer nearby was disgruntled about... More

Picking up on a number of points addressed in other reviews ... I was there today Friday lunch-time. Certainly the welcome is fine and the person in charge knows his stuff with regard to which tables have been allocated through reservation. The staff are also courteous, and there was no problem with waiting times for food to be served despite... More

Called for lunch and ordered sandwiches. Nobody asked what type of bread, but just took the order. I asked the remaining waitress whether there was a choice of bread and she said, 'white or brown'. Ordered brown. Sandwiches arrived on white, Was told, 'we're out of brown'. I thought Jeez, couldn't the manager send someone along to the supermarket if... More

Arrived for a Monday lunch, restaurant was a little quiet. Service and food were excellent and I would recommend the Fish & Chips.

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.

Had a wonderful dinner with business associates on a Monday evening. A very classic atmosphere and great food. I had battered haddock and "lovers chips" and they were delicious. We had some great ales and shared unique appetizers. Service was extraordinary.

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 !
