Watford
About the restaurant
Humo [oo-moh], is a modern firehouse situated in the heart of Watford, serving Spanish inspired meat, seafood, fish, and seasonal vegetables cooked in a charcoal and wood oven.

The furnace reaches temperatures of over 300 degrees Celsius so the produce is seared and smoked in seconds, making sure the flavour sings on your palate, and not on the plate.

The restaurant boasts a beautiful, seated island bar, a peephole into the working kitchen and covers for over 100 guests. The a la carte menu is purposely focused on dishes that dance in the fire, and the specials menu celebrates the produce only available seasonally.

The wine list is carefully designed to pair with the menu and comprises of a sophisticated range of wines from around the world. The bar also features a range of spirits, beers, classic and inventive cocktails for your pleasure.

Amazing inside .. it’s gorgeous and ambient The food is stunning , I had calamari and a mixed grill .. and you could tell by a mile how well the food was prepared and cooked and they didn’t scrimp on the portions which is rare ! The service was 5 star from the moment you arrive , seated and leaving , they can’t do enough for you . How many times have you come home from a meal and moaned about the service? You won’t if you go here It’s a little pricey but .. you get what you pay for . Will definitely go again , loved it

It was great experience! I was surprised by the service. Situation: my toddler dropped the fork on the floor. A lady came to pick it up and the waiter change that fork within 2 seconds. That was faster than in London😅☺️ Thank you for this experience.

Had a lovely evening at Craft & Cleaver. There was a great atmosphere and the other diners appeared relaxed and friendly as did the staff. I enjoyed the chicken burger while my husband commented that the pulled pork was delicious. We’ll definitely return soon!😁
