Love this place! The decor, the food, the vibe and the staff! So we were seated straight away as we were early for lunch and between the four of us ordered mussels, burger, fish and chips and venison cottage pie. Waitress Alex really helpful and great with recommendations. Beer she recommended was really well received! Food arrived within a reasonable... More

Breakast is in the spacious bar area with huge sturdy tables in the centre and nice raised tables around the edge to "people watch". Tasty Full English breakfast and free filter coffee. Free newspapers to read and a building full of history with exposed brickwork too.

We came here for a birthday 'host a roast'. It's very hard to find a restaurant that can cook a roast like the one you can do at home, with crispy roast potatoes and tender succulent meat. Well that's exactly what we got - fantastic roast beef with crispy roast potatoes and tasty veg. The gravy was delicious too and... More

The decor is a cool industrial look and feels really spacious with the extremely high ceilings. All the food was good and served together in a reasonable time frame. Great night out and a great...

The food was good and tasty but nothing to write home about. There was a good selection of food and drink though. The bar was nice and decor is very kwl. All members of staff that served us were very polite but it was all together very slow and we had to ask to be served a number of times

I can't remember the last time I was in Hitchin, so had no idea they had such a great restaurant. The restaurant is upstairs. They also have a cafe and a cute shop at street level. The restaurant used to be a music hall (the stage remains). The ceilings are vaulted and the front window is the one in their... More
