Food is okay! I didn't like the ribs (we weren't told they were pork belly) so were a bit fatty! I've had many lunches an amazing Xmas works do there! Cocktails are great!

This was my first visit to this restaurant and I was pleasantly surprised. We went for Sunday breakfast and it was quite busy and whilst quite loud - the atmosphere was buzzing and friendly. We all had the Full English and all chose different eggs - my scrambled were honestly the best I have ever had - so creamy and... More

This is a very noisy restaurant and on a Sunday lunchtime was jammed full. The tables were tightly packed together and had to eat with my elbows by my side! The roast was average and vegetables came mixed up in a small bowl and were overcooked to the extent they were almost mushy. There were also not served at the... More

Had a great meal at the Herm last night. Have been several times before but not my first choice due to the amount of noise generated. However the new menu is amazing especially if you like fish as this is the one thing Hitchin is missing a good selection of fish on a menu, lots of other choice if you... More

I have eaten at the Hermitage many times and enjoy the venue for it's originality and vibrance. However I was very disappointed to find that on a Monday evening when the restaurant was not particularly busy, that a party of only 14 were obliged to order from a restricted menu. I would have expected a restaurant to welcome 14 diners... More

One of the nicest places to eat in Hitchin. Waitress was polite, atmosphere was great and all the food was delicious. Yes it's a little pricey but if you want something special.. then it's worth paying for. Can't wait until next visit.

Myself and a friend went for lunch on Thursday 2nd October. The restaurant decor is very nice and the whole establishment is cleaned to a very high standard especially the ladies wash room. I found the lunch time menu quite limited, however what we did order was cooked to a very high standard and very flavourful. I would high recommend... More

Went for a meal after hearing rave reviews but was not that impressed. Its like eating your food in a very big loud dining hall. Kept getting nudged by people on the table next to me - it was that close. Food is very expensive and wouldn't say good value for money and choice is not great. There is no... More

I took Mum here for her birthday as none of us had ever been and we were not disappointed. Of course since I was buying Mum had a bottle of wine. The food was fantastic - I can honestly say that I have not found another place that can beat it. You do pay a little bit of a premium,... More
