We love the place great for drinks or food we have had one dodgy meal here but I think that was more choice than what was served . The service is good and the staff alway remember you . It's buzzing and the atmosphere is great . Highly reccomend

Lots of people had told us about this place and because we've got a few local favourites the hermitage didn't top our list of must dos. Tonight was a choice between nandos or another, thank goodness we chose this place. Food was top notch, service was worthy of anywhere good that I've been, the place just oozes class. Add to all this the fact that our bill for three courses each plus a few drinks was a shade under 70 quid and I think we have a winner. As long as they can maintain the standards we experienced tonight we have found a new regular restaurant.

After living in Hitchin for many years I only came across this restaurant recently. The small coffee shop gives no hint of the huge restaurant upstairs, but what a find! The food was excellent, portions medium sized but filling enough. It offers amazing value as we had 2 lunch mains, a dessert, coffees and soft drinks all for £30! The staff were attentive and the look and style of the restaurant was modern and comfortable. We're going back next Sunday and I'm sure will make this one of our regular spots for coffee, lunch or dinner.

Despite living only a few miles away, we'd not visited before. However, we'll certainly be back. The food was very good; as with most of the decent food establishments in Hertfordshire, the menu smacked of "gastro pub" but the quality was generally superior. Of particular note was the Sticky Toffee Pudding, which was probably the best we have ever tasted. My only caveat would be that the oysters, whilst tasty, were firm on the outside and I suspect may have been frozen - which, of course, should not be done! However, I enjoyed them nonetheless.
The atmosphere is terrific and quite unlike anyhere else in the area. We envisage this becoming a regular haunt and would certainly recommend it!
I have rated the service "average" as it was very inattentive - however this should be taken in context - this is not a formal dining experience and similar establishments in London would see you ordering at the bar.
