I am fairly new to Hitchin and this was my first visit with a friend. The place was buzzing with a lively atmosphere. Service was prompt and attentive. I had the salmon to start(exquisite) followed by the pan-fried sea bass with risotto, which was a-maz-ing!!! Loved it here and will definitely be dining here again in the future.

This is the only second time I have been to Hermitage road and it didn't disappoint. I went with a group of 4 friends who had never been and first off we were impressed with the venue. It was packed on a Saturday night but had a great atmosphere and although it took a while for the food to come... More

Visited on a Saturday morning with the wife after a friend of hers recommended it. From the start we were welcomed instantaneously by a happy courteous waitress. In total I think we were waited on by three members of staff, all as happy and professional as you could hope to imagine. The food came quickly and to a very high... More

Great food freshly cooked in an open kitchen, efficient and friendly staff. The menu offers plenty of choice for breakfast, lunch & dinner. The atmosphere is vibrant & buzzy. There are regular music events too.
