Huge bar/dining room stripped back in New York loft style, for ales, cocktails and food, scrumptious and good value. Child-friendly, too...

What a surprise: a former ballroom and nightclub in the heart of Hitchin; Anglian Country Inns opened its fourth dining venue in 2011. From the street and the coffee bar (all-day cakes, bagels, sandwiches) stairs lead up to a cavernous bar and dining room, funkily stripped back in New York loft style, with exposed brick walls, acres of oak floor, subtle lighting, arched floor-to-ceiling windows and open-to-view kitchen. Chill out with a cocktail or a pint of Brancaster Brewery ale, share a supper charcuterie board at high tables, or watch the food being cooked from the dining table – steaming Brancaster mussels; cauliflower cheese with almond and brioche crumb; pan fried sea bass with pumpkin, orange, spinach and red pepper risotto. Everyone is beating a path to Hermitage Rd – make sure you book!
