We went for tea as a family at 6pm on a Sunday eve. We have friends who had raved about it so we had high expectations.

We were the only people there, the greeting was friendly. We sat down and we all immediately noticed that the table was really sticky. The floor wasn't very clean either.

We ordered burgers all round. That is in fact all you can order although there are veggie options. The food was tasty, freshly cooked and good quality. They don't hold a license so only soft drinks are offered, served nicely in milk bottles and jam jars. Nice touch.

I just can't forgive the cleanliness especially when the place was empty and staff not busy when we arrived. Maybe we'll give it one more try.

A small restaurant close to St Albans city centre, The Meating Room has the best burger I've ever had, anywhere. All ingredients are very fresh, the buns have been specially created for this menu and the burger mix is the highlight. We ate at Byrons in Kensington High St a couple of nights before and it was very good, but The Meating Place burger completely trumps them.
This is a friendly, locally-owned, community-oriented independent business run with passion and a desire to be the best. So far the food and the welcome meet that target.
Eat in or take away - give it a try!

I are her earlier this month and have to say I was thoroughly impressed. There are plenty of very good Italian and Indian restaurants in St Albans and so it was good to see something different (and independent) open locally.
The place is usually packed out at lunchtime which is always a good sign. The staff are very friendly and I have to say the burgers are excellent. I will definitely be coming back and would recommend this place if you are craving a burger or something a bit different.
