Description: 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.

Visited for Sunday lunch - food was very nice and tasty. Service started off very attentive but then our waiter disappeared and never returned with no mention that he was going. Overall, it was very nice but the service could do with a bit of improvement.

Pros: 1) burger accompaniments were fresh and the burger itself was tasty Cons: 1) expensive for what you get - the £7 burger was miniscule 2) service was friendly but shambolic and took 15 minutes for drinks to arrive (we were one of three tables so the place was not busy) 3) toilets (a bug bear of mine) had no...

Had some takeaway burgers from here recently. Burgers came in a cardboard box which had soaked up so much grease that they almost peeled off the burger. Even so, the burger still had enough grease left in it to put me off finishing it and chuck my guts up at 2am the following morning. I wrote two emails to complain... More

We all went for the beef as we are traditionalists, and being fussy we went for different levels of cooking / rarety and got precisely what er ordered. The plates arrived at the same time and had...

Went to have a bite to eat and was very disappointed. Cramped at the back, looked like it had seen a fair bit of action and the food itself didn't warrant the price charged.

I had previously walked past the restaurant and decided not to go in as the lighting at the front of the bar/restaurant made it look unappealing to a businessman who wanted a quiet meal and time to catch up on news or read a book etc. I had looked at the online menu and decided I liked the look of...

Fantastic food, well presented and great value for money. Staff were very welcoming and friendly. Staff didn't wait for us to ask for something and they were on the ball throughout our wedding reception.

4yr old daughter had a burger and chips. I had a sandwich and fat cut chips. Coffee for me and fanta for her. Overall it was a good lunch albeit a bit expensive at £16.50 I would have liked to have seen the sandwich come with some chips and sandwich. She really enjoyed her burger which is unusual because at... More

We had our evening meal for 4 people and breakfast the following morning for 4 people. The evening meal was really good, not eveyone's cup of tea but for an eating place of this type, it really was very good. The only disappointment was that the mussels and hush puppies on the starter menu were not available. The burgers however... More
