I visitied Lussmanns Hertford branch, two couples, for Sunday lunch in February. Cannot fault the place at all. Food was lovely - tasty, well cooked and well presented, the wine list is good and decent value and the service was attentive, friendly and efficient. All done for decent prices and very good value. I would definitely go back and am... More

Monday night and a meeting that had over run, no time now to rustle up something for supper so the choice in front of us is a take away or eat out. Having had a Chinese take away just a few days earlier we looked round for somewhere to eat out. Monday night is never the best time to find... More

So I rocked up here after the official closing time of the kitchen as we'd just driven from Scotland and had arrived a tad later than expected. The lovely young waitress asked us to wait a minute whilst she checked if the kitchen could accommodate us. Yes, no problem was the answer so we decided one course would be fine... More

Had a lovely late lunch mid week with some of my friends and i can't fault the food at all. We opted for the 2 courses for £12.95 deal which was really good value for money!

Once again we were delighted with the really friendly service and an inspired selection of dishes that showed both thought and consideration regarding some unusual combinations. The restaurant is attractive without being pretentious and affords just the right degree of casualness allowing us to enjoy a great lunch without being rushed. We were pretty sated but the desserts sounded so... More

Popped in for a quick bite with a business partner and was delighted. Their set menu is cracking value at £12.95 for 2 courses and a decent selection too. Some nice specials and staff who are enthusiastic and friendly. Free tap water, not as common as it could be and a tidy wine list too. I had the pork rillette... More

Great staff, super food and very friendly pricing. We eat here regularly for both lunch and dinner, with friends and just as a couple. Can't fault them. It in the details, good glasses, cutlery and cotton napkins odd to comment on these sort of things, but to me quality is important. Hertford needs more places like this to eat!

Lussmanns is the uncrowned jewel of Hertford eateries and don't get me wrong the food here is good, but I am yet to be blown away. Also, the last time I ordered salmon that was completely soaked in oil, which kind of defeats the purpose of having fish as a light meal. Lussmanns is good, but for a better experience... More

Paul our new man at the helm will be very happy to make sure this does not happen again, additionally the salmon is only a Christmas dish and will not make a comeback until at least the end of the year.  I have emailed you privately so hope to hear from you.

My family and I went to Lussmans for NYE for the second year running, the atmosphere was really nice, the food was excellent as always, and the service was efficient, friendly and professional. The locally sourced produce is always very tasty and expertly cooked, it is our favorite restaurant in Hertford.

we randomly went to Hertford for dinner on the way home from work initially we walked past but came back. We were so pleased we did food and service were 5 star. We had the fondue for starter initially disappointed as was a baked Cambert but was amazingly flavoured. I had the Haddock and Rosti fish was cooked to perfection.... More

Description
Lussmanns is Hertford's busiest independent restaurant. Since opening in 2004, they have really come to understand our locals and what they want from their restaurant. Centrally located in the historic 'Egyptian House' (for Da Vinci Code fans, this was rumoured to have been a meeting place of the Knights Templar), this Hertford restaurant is bijou and full of atmosphere at any time of day.
