Welcome To The Radcliffe

The Radcliffe is a welcoming, modern gastropub offering real ales, craft beers and fine wines together with a wide and varied menu. We use the very finest, seasonal ingredients to offer a really satisfying dining experience. We are Hitchin's gastropub.

We have a relaxed, intimate restaurant close to Hitchin’s town center, where our philosophy is to create uncomplicated, full-flavoured food, made from the freshest, highest quality British produce. We also serve a separate bar snack menu and mix seriously good cocktails.

The Radcliffe brings a slice of modern pub gastronomy to Hitchin and includes a secluded upstairs restaurant ideal for private dining and large group functions. Our garden offers a fabulous dining and drinking space for use in the warmer months. We welcome families and children and have a young diner’s menu.


We go to great lengths to create an atmosphere that is easy going and welcoming . We have our main restaurant and bar area, the conservatory and an upstairs restaurant with roof terrace. So whether you want to socialise, enjoy a romantic meal, or hold a celebration, we are the place to be.


We are very proud of our extensive and exciting wine list. Our wines are supplied by local wine merchants and our independent status means we get to try some rather special wines not offered to the chain establishments.
