I was lucky enough to enjoy a birthday afternoon tea in the glorious sunshine at Redcoats recently with friends. The setting was just perfect. We could choose exactly where we wanted to sit (inside or out) and chose a shady spot in the truly beautiful gardens. Staff were friendly and helpful, the food fresh and delicious and we had a magical afternoon. Highly recommended! (We opted for the celebration menu, which included these to-die-for meringues - well worth a little extra

Charming staff & location with delicious menu. From the accountant, who described himself as "playing with ink in the office," and rekindling the coal fire with candles; to Peter who is justly proud of this fab family enterprise. If you are in the area sample this

Nice selection of starters (delicious pate). Excellent service - discreet but efficient. Relaxing ambience - plenty of space around the tables in the conservatory. Delicious desserts especially the creme brulee. We will come again!

We have lunched, dined and had our wedding breakfast at Redcoats for in excess of 22 years. They never fail to deliver. The addition of lunch on Saturday makes the experience complete. Thank you.

Redcoats is a restaurant & hotel in a beautiful bit of countryside just outside Hitchin. I've always enjoyed eating there, particularly in their sunny conservatory, but I've just been reminded of how nice a place it is to visit as we went for lunch last sunday. It's just a perfect combination of exceptionally good food, attentive, friendly staff and a lovely setting. You do have to book early though as it's popular....
