Hermitage Rd Bar and Restaurant Hitchin

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 and have a browse in the lifestye store.

We are open 7 days a week, see below for opening times and details.  Our coffee and bagle shop is open 7 days a week with pop up al fresco cocktails on sunny Fridays and Saturdays. We also offer private dining, cocktail masterclasses and conferencing for up to 24 people in our ‘Room @ the Top’ best to contact us about this availability and terms post-lockdown.

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 (not currently on but it will be back with a bang!). 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.
