We moved away from the area a year ago and returned for dinner believing this to be one of the best restaurants. I have nothing terrible to say, staff were polite and helpful, service good. But we have half a dozen places within walking distance of where we live now, where the food is much better and prices quite a... More

A small cafe front downstairs belies a large high-ceiling restaurant and bar area upstairs. Lovely bare stone walls are offset with the large stainless steal open kitchen and modern looking ceiling decoration. The large trio of windows at the end of the room which feature the restaurant's logo give the room a great deal of natural light, it's a large... More

Excellent food without a shadow of a doubt and food with real flair as well. Polite staff but very slow service due entirely to the waiting staff as the cooking staff (of whom there were many (the kitchen was part of the dining area)) did their jobs efficiently and quickly but I did watch our ice cream sit for some...

Came here for a drink, the staff do not care about service, literally 6 staff behind the bar, barely any customers at the bar and yet I wait twenty minutes to be served, but not before being passed up by their staff for loud mouth customers.

Have eaten here a few times and in each case the food was very good, with a simple menu and some good specials. The wine and beer is also excellent. It has been busy on each occasion so I would recommend booking in advance. As it is busy, you might want to ask for a table around the outside as... More

We came here for a friends surprise birthday gathering, we thought it would be a perfect setting - which it was! I arrived early with balloons which the maitre'd kindly set up on our table for me while I had a drink at the bar. They have done this place up astoundingly well. Being a born and bred Hitchin girl,... More

It's a good atmosphere. A bit glitzy bling for me but there are more down to earth types around the edges sometimes.

As I was getting my hair cut I asked the barber about somewhere decent to get a good burger and he recommended the Hermitage. We popped in on a quiet Saturday PM and it was all good, there was nothing we could have complained about. The food was pretty gastro-pub and a bit more but nothing special and nothing bad.... More

Tasty breakfasts. Been several times on a weekend for a late brunch. Sometimes difficult to get a table as we do not book. Had lovely scrambled eggs with their full english and thick hot toast served on the side, all nicely presented. Now doing unlimited tea and coffee which you help yourself to at the bar.

This the first time I've ever been to this restaurant, & going in, I didn't know what to expect, what I got was amazing food & a great seat in front of the kitchin, along side a menu limited to times (e.g: item not served until after 4pm or items only serve until 4pm), why does it feel it should...
