I took my mum here for afternoon tea as a treat. I chose Redcoats Farmhouse because it's special to my mum as this was where she stayed on her wedding night 25 years ago. We booked a table for 2 originally in the conservatory, however because the weather was nice we were allowed to sit outside under a gazebo looking... More

My friend and I came here for a meal in July 2016. The food was perfectly cooked and there was lots of choice on the menu. I also thought it was very reasonably priced. Service was also very good - friendly and efficient. The location is lovely - we were there on a nice Summer evening - I can see... More

Came with high hopes and expectations and looking forward to enjoying a birthday dinner. Hadn't realised that the slowness meant that without intervention the food would have been served on the next birthday. Waitresses were lovely but overworked and can't be blamed for the menu that offered sauces with the steaks that never arrived or for the overcooking of them.... More

Dear Markbomber, I am truly sorry to read that we did not give you the service that you expected on the day. I understand that most of the guests on the night arrived near the same time, which did not help the quality of service but it is no excuse overall. I am of course happy to discuss the matter...

I took 6 important guests for a celebration meal. We waited an hour and 10 minutes for our Starters.Another 50 minutes for the Main course. The steaks came minus the pepper sauce-described on the menu, ordered,but strangely only appeared on the bill! Mine was overcooked and lukewarm. Repeat drink order was forgotten.Waitress visits to this crowded dining room were rare... More

Although I've lived locally all my life this was the first visit here and it was just perfect. The food was gorgeous, the setting amazing. It was very busy but the service was good. The menu isn't the most extensive but there's enough to suit all. Well worth a visit.

Description
"Rustic chic dining where you just won't want to leave" Our bright and contemporary Conservatory restaurant perfectly balances 15th century farmhouse charm with a modern and relaxed dining environment. Whether you want a quick lunch, a bite to eat on the way home from work or to celebrate a special birthday or anniversary, Carol and her front of house team will look after your every need. Our head chef Scott and his brigade have built our reputation as one of the best restaurants in Hertfordshire. All the food is seasonal and our menus change frequently. Using local produce where possible, including game, but occasionally going further afield to get the very best. Redcoats - A place of warmth, precious moments and endless character. Yours to return to, time and time again
