Rigsby's restaurant started life as a small theatrical cinema showing newsreels to locals during the war and then in the 50's it became a theatrical practice theatre for the Hertford operatic society, in 2003 it started the transformation to become a tea room and in 2007 commenced serving high quality afternoon teas and snacks. Gradually the on-going success has initiated steady development of the premises, involving a huge investment and recent large development in 2013 which transformed the 1900 building in to what we see today, the development not only included complete internal refurbishment and catering kitchen, but added a large seating area with glazed doors and windows, giving a light and fresh feel to the building. The high ceilings and exposed brickwork compliments the existing building, giving a unique style and great atmosphere that works so well during both during the day and evenings.
We recently were lucky enough to appoint a highly experienced manager, Vitor Fernandes, who has overseen this transformation to allow Rigsby's to become one of Hertford's leading dinning experiences. Rigsby's is open every day from 10am to 10.30pm and we have an array of menus to suit everyone, including a brand new a la carte, breakfast and fixed price menus during the week, please be sure to see our section on this site under 'menus' for full details, including our great new wine menus with after dinner desserts and cocktails.
