Sunday lunch is something Hitchin does very, very well. See what's on offer for Father's Day at The Radcliffe, The Victoria, Redcoats or Hitchin Priory.
Of course, if you're making a weekend of it and want to start with Fish and Chips on Friday night, there's none better than The Town Fryer.
And if you're planning on entertaining at home, his favourite tipple (or some new ones to try) are all available at Blue Otter Wines.
If Dad deserves pampering, don't forget there's Pebble in the town and Champney's a bit further out.
There are Dad treats aplenty in our local retailers. Smarten him up at HRH Holmes and Polgara's Secrets. Bring out his artistic side at Penco. Give him some DIY or house and garden help at Brookers.
Shop, eat or drink local - there's so much choice.
