Second time I have visited this place , the first time being for dinner which was great. The occasion this time was to celebrate a thirtieth birthday. I can see why people go every Sunday. What a great way to start the day. The service was very good. All the staff are pleasant and helpful. The food was good. No... More

We had a snack lunch on Saturday, after the 12:00-1:00 rush. It was still reasonably busy though. This was our second visit to the restaurant. The young staff are lovely, pleasant and efficient. The restaurant upstairs has exposed brick walls, very high lofty ceilings, and has a warehouse look to it. The meals are quite pricey. We both had cauliflower... More

We have breakfast here every Sunday - so I thought it was about time I reviewed it! The staff are great and the service good; it can get very busy unless you arrive promptly. The breakfast menu is fairly large and varies from smashed avocado & poached egg on sough dough toast to standard English fry-up and smoked salmon etc.... More

Great food, great staff and we had a lovely evening. We will be back. We went on a Monday evening and it was not busy - we parked right outside.

The food was really nice, but it is pricey! It is worth going at least once though and maybe starting a night out with a meal there. I had the pork ribs with sweet potato fries and my partner had a fish meal with roasted vegetables. For the price the sweet potato fries were probably about average. The fish meal... More

Popped in to the Herm on Friday evening for a quick drink with my husband. Great atmosphere, fantastic bar staff - came away feeling great after a fun impromptu drink. Love this place!

Nice cocktails at the bar, everyone enjoyed the meal. Very large rooms which make it quite echoey and noisy.

so deceptive, from the outside you will not beleive the size of the place once you go uptstairs, a great bar area & a buzzing restaurant area. Service was superb, and so was the table we sat at (up on the stage)

May I start by saying that I am not a fan of traditional 'Sunday Roasts', especially the type that can be purchased in countless pubs up and down the land. However, as I am thoroughly recommending the Hermitage Sunday lunch, it must be special! I have visited the restaurant on four Sundays over the past few months and it is... More
