Excellent Sunday Lunch

Visited on the 26th July for Sunday lunch. We both had the three courses for £26 option. There is a limited choice of starters and puddings but we both found things we liked and these were tasty and well prepared. The main course option is beef, pork or chicken. We both opted for roast pork and it... read more

Visited the coffee shop/bagel bar recently. Had a chicken bagel and a latte. Although very nice, it was just lacking a bit. Wish the latte was bigger. Wish the bagel was just a bit more exciting. Pretty expensive too what what is was. I've been wanting to try it for a while, I have now but won't return.

Great food, great atmosphere, love this place. My favourite restaurant in Hitchin. Cater for gluten free and happy to advise on ingredients. The cocktails are amazing

I am a fairly regular visitor to the Herm coffee bar (as previous staff can attest). But I don't think I'll be back again in a hurry after my experience this morning. I went in today at ~9am and wanted to order a toasted bagel with cream cheese and a latte to go. Although there were 28 plain uncut bagels... More

Visited on a busy Thursday night. Table booked for 8.15 but not seated until 8.45, but plenty of space in the bar while we waited. Staff very attentive and pleasant. I had the burger which was very nice but a little overprice , I choose the regular fries but they may as well of come from macdonalds, friend had the... More

I went here for lunch with my mum and I thought it was good. The service was okay and the atmosphere left something to be desired. I thought with all the hype about this place, I thought it would be better. Worth giving another shot but not holding my breath lol

Been here a few times and always very busy and lively. Food is good and the cocktails are good but the last time we went, the barman who made my cocktail had an argument with me about the fizziness of the champagne used - the saying the customer is always right is not part of the philosophy here! Nice staff... More

Thank you for your review, very disappointing for us to receive. Please accept sincere apologise on behalf of myself and the bar team for not providing you with the outstanding service we strive to provide. Obviously the incident was unacceptable and is not what we expect from staff at Hermitage Rd. I hope this did not put too much of... More

We go out quite a lot for Sunday lunch and it's hard to find a pub that does proper roast potatoes most pubs roasts are either not crispy or there aunt Bessie's.These roasts where even cooked with beef dripping and my roast beef just melted in the mouth, we did have all three courses and my chocolate pot was lovely...

Unfortunately, the staff didn't seem professional enough for the place and they weren't very apologetic of their numerous stumblings during the evening. The thing that I'm going to remember of our night was that they forgot to bring in the birthday cake - we were celebrating my dad's 60th birthday. I had given the instructions to them twice, once personally... More

We've been going to sister restaurant (the fox in Willian letchworth) for many years which is a really excellent gastropub pub, then they opened this place a year or two ago and being more local to us this was exciting! In my opinion this is exactly the sort of place hitchin was crying out for. It's a lovely old deco... More
