Shutting Down Completely

These are unprecedented times. We are bracing ourselves for the impact of recent announcements and as an independent family run business, we are having to take extraordinary measures in extraordinary times to protect our customers, our team and our business.

We are therefore closing all operations with immediate effect as we believe this is the most responsible thing we can do to protect the welfare of our staff, the communities we serve and the National effort.

We have decided to halt all take away offerings and rooms. In the rare instance that you have a room booked, we will contact you directly.

Follow us on social media channels to find out more of what we are doing to continue to support our communities at this hour of need. Click to read more.


Set in an impressive former ballroom in the heart of Hitchin, Hermitage Rd Bar & Restaurant offers exciting food with added theatre from the open kitchen, quirky cocktails and beer from the bar and live music from local talent. Downstairs, grab coffee and bagels from our award winning coffee shop.

We are open 7 days a week with all day dining options, so come any time for food, drink or both. Our weekend breakfast menu is available Friday, Saturday and Sunday from 9:30-11:00am. Enjoy Buggy Brunch from 11am Mondays to Thursdays. We also offer private dining and conferencing for up to 24 people in our ‘Room @ the Top’

If you are looking for a way to get your weekend off to the best possible start, or else banish the Sunday night blues then come and join us for some great live music on Fridays and Sundays. Hermitage Rd has for decades been a destination for music going right back to our heritage as a ball room. Some of the all-time music greats have graced our stage and we continue to revel in live music and supporting talent including our house band Indi and The Vegas. Check out our social media accounts and events to find out what artists will be gracing the stage when.
