The House Bar and Kitchen
Hertford House Hotel, 1 Fore Street, Hertford, SG14 1DA
Located within two beautiful historic buildings, the Hertford House Hotel offers a unique opportunity for dining and relaxation in the very centre of Hertford. Connected by the hotel's outside area (The Walled Garden, available to hire for drinks receptions, barbecues and hog roasts), The House Bar and Kitchen provides unparalleled surroundings in which to enjoy breakfast, lunch or dinner. Early risers (including non-residents) can begin their day decadently with double eggs Benedict and an expertly made latte. At any time of day, you can choose from a superb-value menu offering starters for £3, mains for £7 and desserts for £3. The great thing about this dining option is you don't need a voucher and it's not a once-in-a-while offer - not to mention the food is top-quality, fresh and delicious. On the mains menu, expect delights such as spit-roast pork with crackling, spaghetti with tiger prawns and chorizo, and whole baked sea bass with fennel - any of which would be perfect followed by a helping of decadent tiramisu or nostalgia-inducing banana split. To wash it all down, you'll find a carefully created list of cocktails, beers, spirits, Champagnes and wines, all at surprisingly good value. The House Bar and Kitchen is licensed until 2am and boasts a seriously good sound system; don't miss the after-dinner disco held on Fridays and Saturdays. And, if after all that you feel you deserve some relaxation, the House Spa lends itself to a wide range of pampering possibilities - pure bliss.
