I didn't feel very welcome, the staff looked fairly miserable, however, the service was attentive and quick. I like a smile and a warm welcome when I'm eating out. Most places in Harpenden are hot on this and its the thing that keeps people coming...More

Friday evening meal for 4, which was really delicious. Freshly cooked so we had a little wait but we would rather that than warmed up food previously done. All mains were delicious, distinctive flavours, served with a smile. Thank you.
