An enjoyable experience, attentive staff but the dining area was a little dated and the starter and main courses were really only mediocre. The main course seemed a little too manufactured. Dessert was the high light. We had a nice time and it made a pleasant change, but we have eaten better elsewhere.

Dear reviewer, Thank you for leaving your recent feedback, Our modern conservatory restaurant has just had a refurbishment with fantastic panoramic views of our extensive gardens. Some of our dining areas are very much in keeping with the history and ambience here at Redcoats, but we do understand the need for updating areas within the hotel and have a plans... More

For the 3rd time in 4 years we returned to Redcoats for Mother's Day lunch, that really should tell you what you need to know. It it's more than that. Redcoats is a lovely old farmhouse in a secluded but accessible area outside Hitchin, there are always plenty of staff who are efficient and pleasant. The Lunch menu was full... More

Just spent a lovely evening with great friends at Redcoats, the very historic farmhouse hotel near Stevenage. We were greeted upon arrival with a friendly smile and shown to a cosy fireplace table after a visit to the bar. We were very keen to know the history of the house and were given a private and very informative tour by... More

Have eaten here many times over a number of decades including a few days ago. Atmosphere is welcoming and relaxing with an interesting and varied menu. They avoid too many options but concentrate on the quality and presentation. Very busy dinning room on our recent visit with service including some new staff working hard to keep pace. Missed the normal... More

My wife and I and our granddaughter have just had a lovely afternoon tea at Redcoats Farmhouse. Everything was freshly prepared and delicious and served by very friendly staff. The scones and cake that we could not finish were wrapped up for us to take home!! Will be regulars from now on.

Quaint, beautiful gardens, nice conservatory and dining room. Bar staff have to go into the cellar to get beer, they disappear behind the bar,& down the steps to pull it! I've been here for work lunches and dinners , private dinner and breakfast. Staff are friendly and the menu is good, nice food.

We met two old friends at Redcoats for last Sunday lunch. It was brilliant. Everyone seemed to set out to make the occasion as enjoyable as possible. It has been quite a while since we were there and it is still a great place with bags of atmosphere, lovely food and wine. It is run to perfection by Peter and... More

We went to the Redcoats Farmhouse for valentines dinner, and had their set menu. £40 each for: Starter, main course, dessert, and coffee/fudge was actually fantastic value for money. The food was exquisite, everything cooked to perfection. I pretty much never write reviews, but after such an amazing experience I really wanted to tell the world! As we left my... More
