Herd has great food, a relaxed and welcoming vibe and comprehensive drinks list. Highly recommend for a fun night out, either for drinking at the bar or for a meal.

Thanks Leah for taking the time to share your experience. Yes the mushrooms are amazing....as too are the eggplant chips! I challenge any person that doesn't like either mushrooms or eggplant to try them and I'm pretty confident you will be converted! Thanks again Leah...More
