25b-26 Sun St, Hitchin SG5 1AH, UK – 01462 440089

Amazing food, I wanted to try almost everything on the menu. Interior is nicely designed. Unfortunately, not too many vegetarian options.

Good food, excellent service, interesting menu. It helps if you enjoy fish. Pricey.

Los Reyes Tapas Restaurant

16 Bucklersbury, Hitchin SG5 1BB, UK – 01462 458354

So many reviews, all saying the same thing... and I will too, great food, lovely staff. Probably the only downside is that its so popular that you do need to book in advance, but hey, I cant really hold that against them. Fantastic food, I will definitely be back for more. Cheers guys.

Really lovely food but quite long wait for service. Allow the time to enjoy properly! On the pricier side but very enjoyable and the courtyard is lovely

Bar Azita

35 Bucklersbury, Hitchin SG5 1BG, UK – 01462 455803

Lovely atmosphere, nice staff, I loved the choice of vegetarian options. All very tasty!

Great place. Great food. Friendly people.

Delicious meal and friendly staff. The service did feel a little rushed, however.

Raj Douth Tandoori Cuisine

19A Hermitage Rd, Hitchin SG5 1BT, UK – 01462 437674

Nice enough service but food a bit bland compared to other Hitchin restaurants. Poor drink selection unless you really like Cobra and provide than expected.

Proper traditional curry house. The Raj Douth Special is delicious.

Indian Hitchin

47 Ninesprings Way, Hitchin SG4 9NR, UK – 01462 457421

Great place, best indian food, lovely waiter service and presentation of food too. Very busy Saturday night and good atmosphere but did wait quite a long time for food so only 4 stars. It was however worth the wait.

The best tasting Indian food in hitchin. 10/10 would recommend for great food and great friendly service.

Zizzi Hitchin

21 Sun St, Hitchin SG5 1AH, UK – 01462 440708

Waitresses were great! Very friendly. Food was on time. Served well. Tasted good. We didn’t book and got a seat straight away. Really nice experience, dawn the waitress deserves a mention for great service.

Pretty good but not the best food from Zizzi I've had.

La Bella Vita Hotel and Restaurant

9 Sun St, Hitchin SG5 1AE, UK – 01462 434380

We booked 2 double rooms- absolutely beautiful rooms. Our room had a lovely 4 poster bed. Other room was just as nice. Both rooms had air con but it didn't work very well. Right in centre of Hitchin so good for night life. Full English included in very reasonable cost of room. Would recommend this hotel and would definitely stay here again.

We had an amazing visit to Hitchin, and La Belle vita hotel was a great place to stay.... We had a beautiful room, with air conditioning (much needed on a Very hot day) and the most comfortable 4 poster bed... Very good value, and highly recommended... A great place to stay....

Prezzo Hitchin

4, 15 Bancroft, Hitchin SG5 1JQ, UK – 01462 453366

I have had pizzas, pasta, salads, starters, desserts... its always good in Prezzo. I'm not usually a huge fan of salad, but they are generous and have plenty of flavour... always happy to return, even if its just for a lunchtime/work lunch. Staff have always been polite and helpful. Very pleasing.

You get pretty much the same food quality in a Prezzo. The only thing that changes is the ambience and service. I had the lobster and crab tortellini and thoroughly enjoyed it. The service was pleasant and not rushed, in fact we left when we realised that we were probably holding the staff back from closing the door.

Great place good music fantastic atmosphere door staff very pleasant and welcoming well recommended place to visit

Average bar/dance floor nothing too great but nothing awful

The Snug Bar Hitchin

24 Sun St, Hitchin SG5 1AH, UK – 01462 887586

Great cocktails, I’d say best in Hitchin. Sadly, they do not serve food any more. But we were okay to bring ours from the street food festival.

Pricey but nice when you catch it on a busy night. DJ nights are good but not on often.

Pitcher & Piano

31 Market Pl, Hitchin SG5 1DY, UK – 01462 434396

One of the party is in a wheelchair and the Pitcher and Piano has a long entrance with many steps, but they had no issues in letting us use the side fire exit to come via and let us have an accessible table that was thankful free. Food was very good, although they forgot the cutlery until we mentioned it, and so brought that to us after our food arrived - not a massive issue but would have been nice to have the cutlery ready/first. But apart from that service was good, polite and helpful

great atmosphere.worth it's wait in gold....quality staff and food and spirits.nice to chill and avoid the idiot's of the town

Lovely food. Shame it doesn't delivet

Eat Well

103 Bancroft, Hitchin SG5 1NB, UK – 01462 451488

Honestly, I don't know what's going on with some of the other reviewers, we have had take away from here many times and its always been good. We have tried others and their food will often have too much sauce, or veg that lacks any bite. Personally, I really recommend Eat Well as a good Chinese take away - generous portions, always fresh. I'll order again soon guys.

You've gotta be out of your mind to not love this chinese. Amazing!! Always delivered on time or slightly early, food always piping hot and SO tasty! Best spring rolls in the world x


145 Nightingale Rd, Hitchin SG5 1RG, UK – 01462 423663

We order from Jasmine thai occasionally and EVERY TIME the food is eaten by us .....it is....TASTY AND YUMMMEEE !!!!

Best Chinese restaurant ever! They are famous for their Singapore style noodles.

Ickleford Vegetarian or Vegan Restaurants

Chia Naturally Healthy Café

25 Churchyard, Hitchin SG5 1HP, UK – 01462 457777

I really enjoyed the taste of the vegan breakfast. However it was presented more like a stew so all of the ingredients were already mixed together. The cake was really nice as it was especially moist in the middle. The reason I am not giving the restaurant five stars is due to the service. I requested to have some tissue and the waiter proceeded to ask me why I needed it. She was very reluctant for me to have a napkin. She said she would get me a tissue from the back but she never returned with any. I found it quite strange!

Wonderful small cafe selling purely healthy vegan food, drinks, smoothie and shakes. Inspiring menu and decent portions. Helpful, friendly staff. Very steep stairs as set in gorgeous but tiny maybe 300 year old cafe. Views of the church.

Bar Amigo

23 Market Pl, Hitchin SG5 1DT, UK – 01462 455454

Service outstanding -After sheepishly informing the waitress (and the two delightful trainee girls) that I am vegan she made sure that the vegetarian dishes were tweaked to meet my needs. This was great as this is not the case in many places. I thought the atmosphere was relaxed, warm and comfortable. Food good.

Eaten here twice now, after the first time we were eager to come back and we certainly weren't dissapointed with the second experience either! The place is beautifully decorated with a very homely atmosphere, mood lighting that doesn't leave you blindly fumbling in the dark and very pleasant staff! It's not a big place so booking is a must but it's not overly cramped when full. Very well recommended, we shall certainly be back.


36 Bancroft, Hitchin SG5 1LA, UK – 07438 853471

This restaurant offers a wide selection of Japanese dishes and plates. The quality of the food varied depending on the dish. The gyozas were too overcooked, the fried crab was tasty and the sushi was also very well prepared and presented. Overall, it is a good choice with a reasonable price. Service was attentive and perhaps the tables were too close to each other.

The food here is amazing, great location and a good selection of food. The only problem is it’s always booked when I try to get a table. Well not always but you do need to book well in advance for the weekends.

Radcliffe Arms Restaurant and Bar

31 Walsworth Rd, Hitchin SG4 9ST, UK – 01462 456111

Nice restaurant. Specially remarkable are the pizzas and the pots. The pot with mackerel is very tasty, and very reasonably priced (11 £). Like in several restaurants in UK, the customer must order at the bar at all times, and pay upfront each time, which I find quite annoying.

Simply superb. We stopped by without planning. Friendly staff, lovely food. Perfection.

The Half Moon Hitchin

57 Queen St, Hitchin SG4 9TZ, UK – 01462 453010

Real ale pub. Fantastic selection. Very good prices

Great pub, good beer selection, no TVs so good place for a meet up and a chat with friends over a pint and some food

The George Pub

33 Bucklersbury, Hitchin SG5 1BG, UK – 01462 339076

A proper down-to-earth pub with great food, a wide selection of drinks & fair prices. Lively on weekends with a real diverse crowd of people from all over the place. There's live music & DJs playing classics & rarities, soul, funk, rnb & rock. Front of the pub often filled with jovial dancing people, never a dull night. Bogart's lounge upstairs, open til late and great for private hire. It's run by lovely, hard-working people. Even the bouncers are friendly. The heart & soul of Hitchin night life.

Had a nice lunch ,decent burger nice quality bacon and cheese as Toppings .Nice fries and decent portion of colslaw
