Great little place just off the Market Square in Hitchin - with a new owner who's all charm, and really knows his wine and his whiskies...Part of the new offer is Indian tapas, and what we've tried so far has been amazing. A gem worth discovering -

Lovely bar but expensive drinks - £4.70 for a single vodka & coke. Compared to the usual Hitchin prices of £2.90-£3.70 for the same drink. It meant we only stayed for one.

Been here a couple of times and it really is a summer venue - the al fresco seating in a relatively secluded bit of the town gives it the mediterranean feel that most people want in the warm weather. When it's colder then the place becomes a little more cramped inside.

The owner/host is a lovely, chatty bloke who does his best to speak to everyone. However, it's somewhat odd to be in a wine bar - on a Saturday night - and be told that there is only ONE choice of red wine available due to the stocks of all other wines running out. I'd expect more than one choice of wine in an average pub (and there are many good pubs in Hitchin), so to say this was a surprise is something of an understatement.

Maybe I was just unlucky.
