I headed here on Christmas Eve eve for dinner witha friend, we went the whole hog with starters, main, sweets, lots of cocktails & a bottle of bubbles! Service was great and they have a gluten free menu which is always a bonus!

A busy open cantine style in a former dancehall. Friendly service with some interesting plates of food but a little inconsistent in the quality. Nice starters but one main course of liver was disappointing as it was poorly prepared. Sauces rather heavy handed. Wines expensive for what they were and the wine list did not give guidance how dry they... More

Firstly the decor is amazing and everywhere you look there is something for you to admire, i think this adds to the great atmosphere they have. We just couldn't get over how friendly everyone was...

Treated my boyfriend (I thought I had better!) on date night and chose The Hernitage because I just love it here. The steak is heavenly. And the ambience in both the restaurant and bar is fantastic. We dine out a lot and he said it's his favourite place we've ever been too! Love the bar staff making cocktails and the... More

Three of us stopped in for a quick lunch. Great bagel sandwich choices, good coffee & tasty desserts. A little surprised that there weren't more bagel choices on the breakfast menu.
