We had a fantastic meal with friends to celebrate my husband’s birthday. It was mid-week, so the main a la carts menu. The staff were friendly and attentive without being overbearing, the food was amazing and with good sized portions, and they even made an extra effort for my husband with a Prosecco for him when we arrived and a celebration plate with some truffles for us after dinner! They didn’t know it was our first time dining at The Kite but based on the food and service, we will definitely be returning. Strong recommend.

Great friendly service, very dog friendly so expect the odd bark up, good food, good range of Craft beers (but sadly no Old Man's Brown Foaming Ale for me like a London Pride or Spitfire!), Venison Shepherd's Pie n thing of absolute beauty

Our main server Jaz was lovely and really helpful and she is a credit to The Cricketers. We had a long wait (almost an hour) for the food, which was at least part due to a very large group who had put in an order just before we arrived. We did get a small discount off the bill for that. When the food arrived though, was really good and worth the wait, also to once the starters did come, the mains and desserts were much quicker. All I’d say is factor in a long wait for the food, seems to be a bit of a recurring comment on the reviews and the kitchen needs to be a bit better with its time management, but the food is good value for money when it arrives, the staff are friendly and the cricketing theme is fun (especially for those of us who are fans of the game).

Brookmans Park
About the restaurant
With opulent interiors and a contemporary bar and eatery, we are proud to have become a hub for the local area. Join us for a great cup of coffee, a decent pint of beer, or a glass of chilled champagne. Take a seat at the bar facing the door if you want to see and be seen, or find a table in the garden room which opens out onto the terrace. The eatery is warm and welcoming with deep teal walls and splashes of rich mustard yellow offset by soft greys lit by twinkling chandeliers. On the walls hang historic posters from the Metroland era when Brookmans Park was built, part of the hugely-optimistic garden suburb movement.

Great booth for a cosy Sunday roast with family and friends. Amazing food, my belly is now almost as big as my eyes. Both my kids enjoyed their meals, and were happy while the adults were talking. A really great atmosphere, unrushed and great value.

Harpenden
About the restaurant
The White Horse is a delightful old pub in Hatching Green. Five minutes from the bustling centre of Harpenden on the one hand and Junction 9 of the M1 on the other, the pub has a lovely country setting, surrounded by a large leafy garden and terrace.

The bar is warm and cosy, with old parquet and low beams hung with antique copper jugs, while the dining room is light & fresh, its French windows opening onto a sunny terrace. In our charming private dining room, up a winding stair in the oldest part of the pub, we can comfortably host a dinner party for twelve.

Only downside was starter special Cherizzo Bon Bon which was a bit bland, steaks were great, Shiraz was lovely and the service was unhurried and attentive. Would definitely recommend and will be back.

This was my second visit in two weeks. The steak sandwiches are incredible- I’m sure the other food is too, but I’m not sure I’ll ever be able to tear myself away from that sandwich! Came here for lunch after a 10 mile walk and it was so good that I planned my next walking trip around coming here for lunch 👌
