We tried to book a table in the past on a Wednesday it was fully booked, we tried for another date and was successful. The food was lovely and for the higher price band not bad. The service was really good the staff are very attentive and were always on hand to help, one of our guests asked for a... More

The food was really nice - the steak (ribeye) was one of the best I have had in a while. The service was brilliant - the staff were really friendly and attentive. I think the ambience was what I'd call average, I felt like it was too noisy in there to really hear what all of my relatives were saying... More

This is by far the best restaurant in Hitchin. I would recommend booking a table early as they are always busy. The sweet chilli ribs are to die for as well as a Sunday roast! I have also recently been for lunch, they have a really reasonable lunch menu, just £6 for a pulled pork sandwich & chips, which was... More

This is by far the coolest restaurant in Hitchin, mostly due to the venue and interior with high ceilings and trendy design. We went on a Monday (many local places are closed) and it was busy. We didn't get a booth despite asking for one when booking, but this was not surprising as there was only two of us. The... More

Have been on a couple of occasions, really like decor and atmosphere and the food is good although portion sizes not always. One of our party ordered the Seabass on a Bed of Pea Risotto and it was actually Pea Risotto with Slithers of Seabass which was disappointing, particularly given the pricing of the dishes. The other dishes were very... More

Very busy although late on Sunday lunchtime. Taken to table as soon as arrived and introduced to waitress. Although busy we were served quickly. Our starters were presented well. I had the melon and ham special which was presented differently to the usual roll of ham round melon, so looked a picture as well as being delicious. The chicken liver... More

I went here on 16.07.2014 with 5 friends. The food was great, but the service left a lot to be desired. There was a long wait between the starters and the mains. We were not in a rush, but it took a long time for dirty plates to be cleared and drinks to be brought to the table. All in... More

My husband and I come here for a Sunday brunch relatively regularly because we love it. The decor and ambience is that of old world charm, eclecticly decorated with architectural salvage and very relaxed. The food is fab, never struggled to choose and always feel comfy to sit reading a paper at leisure. Can't wait to try it out for... More

Took my date to the hermitage last night after having eaten here before... Touted it as excellent food and atmosphere. Tried to get in on Saturday but place was packed so I was very happy I got to take her on a different evening. Friendly bar staff and waiting staff, although had to ask for a jug of water three...
