This is one of our favourite places to eat breakfast in Hertford. Plus there is a large outside area if the weather is nice. Friday after work with a bottle of wine and a few small plates is a lovely way to finish the week....More

I have been forgiving in the past for the fact that they have run out of tomatoes and mushrooms for breakfast service at 9.00 a.m. in the morning and that the full selection of bread was unavailable, but today hit an all time low. I...More

Occupying a prime location in the pedestrianised square, Café Rouge looks directly across to the cenotaph and is the ideal place to sit down, relax with a meal and a glass of wine and watch the world go by. A petit bit of trivia: during an outbreak of plague in 1563, the Parliament of England temporarily relocated from London to Hertford. To commemorate this, the square was re-named Parliament Square in the 20th century.
