Had lunch here last Sunday, it's an attractive bistro type restaurant, and well priced. The roast beef was lovely, but the roast potatoes were seriously undercooked (and fried) and the veg similarly overcooked and stone cold. Our waitress was lovely (she was throughout) and replaced...More

Went to the cafe rouge in hertford. Honestly we were very surprised of a nice atmosphere and friendly staff. Greek gentelman was taking great care of us, very attentive, food is good, the spring set menu is worth giving a try.

Occupying a prime location in the pedestrianised square, Café Rouge looks directly across to the cenotaph and is the ideal place to sit down, relax with a meal and a glass of wine and watch the world go by. A petit bit of trivia: during an outbreak of plague in 1563, the Parliament of England temporarily relocated from London to Hertford. To commemorate this, the square was re-named Parliament Square in the 20th century.
