Bringing a slice of luxurious East London cool to Hertford, cutting edge chef Carl Clarke has joined forces with Hertford House heading up the restaurant and bar and late-night cocktail lounge. Serving an enticing selection of great quality, British produce is at the heart of the new menu, installing a Japanese Robata grill (charcoal grill lending a smoky element to food) ensures the best flavoured rare-breed Flat Iron and 35 day aged Rib Eye steaks, Cornish day-boat fish (literally pulled from the sea hours before), in-house BBQ hickory smoked chicken and Saddleback baby ribs.

Nice tasty food and atmosphere

We visited with my kids to eat before looking around the function room as a possible party venue. We wanted to try the food and see what the food quality was like for the venue catering. The choice is limited but nice and mainly American style so good for families and kids alike. I can not fault... read more

Despite reading mixed reviews I decided to give it a go with family members as well as 2 kids under 8 on Saturday lunchtime. It had a nice buzz about the place and there was other families in there too. The service was very prompt and friendly from the moment we walked in. The children were accommodated sufficiently and the... More

I've been here for not very good breakfasts a few times but had to write a review today. Maybe I'm fussy, but I asked for sour dough toast. Breakfast arrived with normal bloomer. When I queried it, i was told it was definitely sour dough. My other half tried it and confirmed it was nothing like sour dough, so I... More

Quite simply the best pancakes I have ever had! I have eaten in nearly all hotels/cafes and restaurants in Hertford, but Hertford House is the best by far! Enjoy.

Excellent updated menu for food with great American choice. Cocktails Best Buy during the 2-4-1 hours otherwise can become a little expensive. Better service during the quieter periods although here has a great atmosphere when things liven up.

Hertford House has a fairly limited menu, but what they do do is really great. I've pled a few of the burgers and they really are amazing. Huge things, with a very generous bucket of fries to go along with it. And the puds are really nice too - great sundaes. Fantastic food! The service has always been great -... More
