We are so lucky to have Element in our neighbourhood. The service is exemplary- genuinely friendly and welcoming, but unobtrusive- and, after 4 visits, consistently excellent. On top of that, the food quality is always superb, the portion sizes decent, and the ambience warm and relaxed. I'd recommend Element for any occasion and hope to return often. A fantastic local venue Hatfield should take pride in.
Hi BenS, thanks ever so much for the fantastic review. This year has been a really challenging one for the hospitality industry and for restaurants in particular so it means so much to the team to get this kind of recognition for all their hard work and efforts. Many thanks Philip
Very nice service. Good food? One of the dessert for sure not made in restaurant and it will be nice to have bowl of lemon water for ribs.
Hi MaciejP, thanks for taking the time to post your review following your visit to Element Bar & Kitchen. Thanks for the suggestion about the lemon bowl, I will pick this up. With regards our dessert menu, whilst the majority of our desserts are made or finished on site we do not claim anywhere that they are "homemade", and in fact some, like the ice creams, are sourced from local providers and noted on the dessert menu as such. I'm sorry if this wasn't clear. Kind regards Philip
Fantastic thank you ! Will be back
Great service from Ryan

Hi PaigeW, thank you very much for taking the time to post your review and for your lovely feedback, it's really appreciated. Kind regards
Very good service food very nice breakfast value for money
Hi PeterL, thank you so much for the review and kind feedback, it's really appreciated. Kind regards Philip
Would highly recommend. Staff were so friendly and attentive, serving delicious fresh food. The resturant was covid complient so you felt safe during the experience. Loved the art deco interior. Will definitely return. Thank you!
Hi CarrieB, thank you so much for this, I'm delighted you had such a great experience and the team will really appreciate your kind words. Hope to see you back soon Kind regards
We ate lunch at Element Bar & Kitchen in September 2020. There were a total of five people in the restaurant, so it's difficult to rate what the atmosphere is like in the evening when there are more diners there. The food was tasty, as described and hot upon arriving at our table, our flat whites weren't up to much. We'd come back in the evening to see what a difference that makes to the dining experience.
Hi PeterW, many thanks for the review and your kind words. I'm sorry you were disappointed by the coffees, we'll get onto that. Please do come back and see us of an evening; after all the struggles of lockdown and only just having re-opened all day we'd be delighted to see you and other "locals" become regulars of Element Bar & Kitchen. Kind regards
We booked a table for 7 and got seated at 7:55 when there was quite a few seats, but they had given us free drinks so it made up for it.
Food pricey basic menu
Not much atmosphere
No children menu offered
Hi annc - thanks for taking the time to post your review. We obviously very disappointed by your feedback and sorry you didn't enjoy your visit. I'm surprised you say there was no atmosphere as you came during Eat Out to Help Out when we were full. I'm also sorry you weren't happy with the menus and pricing (despite the scheme), we feel the pricing is very competitive and the menus are all available to see on-line prior to booking! I'm sorry we weren't for you. Kind regards
Excellent service. Starters were really generous. The whole experience was unexpectedly lovely.
Hi Macca, thanks so much for the review, I'm thrilled you had such a great experience and thanks so much for sharing. I hope we can welcome you back to Element Bar & Kitchen very soon/ Kind regards
Superb service, delicious and generously portioned food (the caesar salad is outstanding!) and a lovely, stylish but relaxed ambience and decor. A real gem and definitely somewhere we'll visit again. The service was perfect!
Hi BenS, thank you so much for this fantastic review, I'm delighted you had such a great experience and thank you for sharing. Kind regards Philip
Good food, good value and helpful staff. Like the art deco style building.
Hi Andrew, thanks for the review and feedback. Andrew, car parking is free to users of The Comet Hotel and Element Bar & Kitchen so I'm very sorry if you didn't see all the signage advising you to register your vehicle upon arrival. That said, whilst we don't manage the car park or issue any fines, rather than posting this in a review, if you contacted us with the details of the fine, we may be able to speak to the car park management on your behalf and ask if they will cancel the ticket.
Helpful and friendly staff
Food of a high standard
Portions more than ample
First time in the bar since it’s refurb and it looks amazing. Staff were absolutely excellent and made it a thoroughly enjoyable evening. Will definitely be visiting again
The staff were very helpful and courteous. The decor is great especially if art deco is your thing. The food is good especially the steaks. We had t bit of a wait for our desserts and the waiter immediately discounted them from our bill before we could even grumble. They did look after us.
Fabulous! Great everyday menu
Great food after watching some of the best netballers in England compete at the Sports Village
The decor is lovely and staff friendly but the food was awful. Cold steak. Undercooked veg. Vegan burger overdone and tasted like cardboard.
Hope you get a better chef as it promises more than it delivers at present!
The staff were very friendly and the service was good
Stunning building! Food was amazing and very reasonably priced. Staff were friendly and attentive. Will definitely be back
Fantastic restaurant with fabulous food, a very accommodating head chef and the staff were outstanding. We will return even though we live over 70 miles away
Not many vegetarian options.
Rather expensive but the food was lovely.
It has not been open very long so was a little quiet, however service and food were excellent and we enjoyed a relaxing evening with a great meal, cocktails were available and were well made
Very nice. restaurant was recently renovated and there was plenty of space. It was quiet but it was a Monday night, so I hoped that there would not be crowds. We had a very relaxed evening and could talk easily without having to shout. The food was excellent and the staff very helpful and firendly
Very attentive service but a bit too much salt in the food for my tastes, still finished the whole dish though.
Steak and veggie burger took two attempts. Do not ask for medium rare
Wasn't seated outside like request but was glad we weren't due the traffic outside the air con was also need but 1st table under it was too cold and table wobbly so move to restaurant was lovely
Limited choice of food but lovely place although full price without discount would be quite expensive
We visited a couple of days after opening, staff will improve with practice as some were a little hesitant and unsure of some things. Food was OK, steak was a little more well done than asked for but taste was good. Some unavailability of items from menu was disapppointing. We rarely eat out in Hatfield preferring to go to Welwyn garden city (coopers steak house) where the size of portion and accompaniments are far superior. Cocktails were however excellent and bar manager very helpful. I would say the ambience was excellent.
Arrived 30 mins early, and we were showen to a table around the corner not another person in sight. The waitress was nice but we felt we we're being rushed, she took our drinks order my wife asked for a water and was given a massive bottle of Voss water, you could use it as a vase when finished.lol . I ordered the sirloin steak & my wife had the grilled chicken burger. The steak was perfect the only downside for me was the 6 chips i had on my plate.
My wife thought the chicken buger was tasty and it came with a large portion of fries, unlike my 6 chips.
The drinks are on the expensive side but that is to be expected as its a hotel.
On the whole was ok, but as the food is half price at the moment, but once that offer is over it will be a bit pricey for the average Hatfielder.
Terrible service was waiting for half hour didn’t even get our drinks was only a few people dining with at least 6 staff waiting/serving wouldn’t recommend to anyone
