Featured Harpenden Restaurants
1. Lussmanns restaurant in Harpenden 20a Leyton Road - AL5
“Ever-popular Harpenden branch of this local chain, that’s busy and buzzy with folk of all ages enjoying themselves”. Fans say it’s “unfailingly good in all areas”, but to critics it’s no more than a “pleasant enough local”.
2. PizzaExpress Pizza restaurant in Harpenden The Gate House, 1-2 High St - AL5
For the first 20 years of this guide, this famous pizza chain with its “surprisingly distinctive branches” was – with tedious regularity – the survey’s most mentioned group: constantly re-inventing itself to remain everyone’s favourite standby, especially with kids in tow. Competition is sharper nowadays however, and since its ownership changed a couple of years ago (to Hony Capital) ratings and the volume of feedback have slipped well below their historical average. Yes, it is still much-mentioned, and still “as reliable as ever” to armies of loyal supporters, but harsher critics “are stunned by the complacency and staleness of the brand: even the ubiquitous, good value voucher deals are starting to lose their shine”.
