Great drinks, including a elderflower martinis. Good service with top food choices. As this is a fairly new restaurant watford hasn't really got into it yet. Was only a few tables and this made the lack of atmosphere very apparent, hence some background music would have been ideal. Will be heading back!

This is a new restaurant in Watford. I have eaten there several times already in the short time ( few months) since they have opened and I will continue to go again and again.

Everything about it just works- from the modern cosy yet fresh and welcoming decor to the quality of their food and the attentiveness, courtesy and decorum of their staff.

Watford High Street is littered with a variety of restaurants and pubs of varying standards and quality- too many in my view bordering on poor quality and service.

Bread and Butter Grill is a cut above anything one will find in Watford.

Apart from the friendliness of the staff, every customer is offered a selection of freshly baked complimentary bread.

Whilst the restaurant is clearly based on the fine dining concept, I think they got the pricing just right in relation to the quality of food they serve, and this coupled with a brilliant ambiance and customer service - the overall experience is truly satisfying and refreshing.

I recommend their lunch and dinner for a tenner ( a main course for a tenner available at fixed times).

I especially like the skewer lamb which is served with a medley of grilled vegetables (aubergines, peppers and courgettes).

The chicken is excellent too impressed with the chicken breast being cooked just right.

Their desserts are good but alas! the best one in my view (their cheese cake) has been taken of the menu.

I noticed a lot of returning customers who clearly are, like me, clearly impressed with the overall standards of the place which is rare and refreshing to find in this day and age where poor customer service is the norm.
