Had an early dinner on Saturday night and really couldn't asked for more. Everything from the guy who greets you outside to Maddy (our excellent server) to the food and decor were absolutely spot on. Excellent value for money and our new favourite restaurant !

Visited on a weeknight in January with a group of friends. This was the first time I had visited in well over a year and I had found it much changed. The service on this occasion in terms of waiting staff friendliness and helpfulness was very good. However we waited a considerable length of time getting our meals out from... More

I really loved the building and the design - quirky and with a buzzy atmosphere. I had whitebait to start - can't really go wrong with that but the tartare sauce was sickly, then I had kings prawns in their shells. Really badly presented,stuffed in a pail with no finger bowl, no plate to take the shells and so over... More

A taste of London outside of the capital. A really fantastic place proudly owned and run by passionate people. I have eaten and drunk here on a number of occasions in the past week and I have always had friendly service, helpful advice, truly terrific food, good value for money and I love the decor. I will keep returning!

The menu changes regularly - just a little and the favourites are always still there which is cool. The beer and wine list seems to just keep on growing. The shop downstairs is a little weird, but it's nice. I think I prefered it how it was before, but it's still cool.

We had a very delicious meal at the Hermitage over Xmas. Even with a large group, the service was good and the food was perfect. Price wise I would say it is good value for money. Atmosphere is always brilliant! Definitely recommend a visit here, probably the best place to eat in Hitchin

We ordered breads and whitebait as nibbles to start which were excellent. Our mains two people had steaks one had partridge and one had ribs. All the meals were of a good standard however with exception to the partridge all were served with skinny chips. We asked if there were any other chips apart from skinny chips and were told... More

great building and nice atmosphere. Food was over priced and very average, nothing special. The most disappointing thing was the poor service. we had at least 4 staff serve us at different times and had to call them to take food and drink orders. wouldn't recommend or go back

Visited the Hermitage recently and the food was great! I had beetroot & goats cheese risotto balls for starter which was delicious, and the bream with lobster bisque for main. My Girlfriend had seafood starter and sirloin steak for main. She said the steak was one of the best she has ever had and cooked to perfection. We also really... More

I scored 4 out of 5 because the place has got potentials,... but not an identity. It could be great and different but it seems to be like any other high street branded restaurant. Service was ok. Food was disappointing. Order the bream and scallops with lobster bisque. Fish and scallop were beautifully cooked when arrived at the table but... More
