If you’re staying in one of our Watford serviced apartments, it’s good to know there’s a fully equipped kitchen where you can cook your own meals. However, if you want to treat yourself, there are plenty of places to eat in Watford within easy walking distance, and in addition to the big chains, there are plenty of independent restaurants to whet the appetite:
If you’re looking for a visual treat as well as a tasty one, JRC Global Buffet has live food stations where chefs prepare and cook fresh dishes from 12 countries around the world. If you’re taking the family, it’d be a good idea to bring a tape measure along because meals are half price for children under 150cm, and free for children under 90cm!
As a family-run business, Zinco Restaurant serves authentic Italian food – pasta, risotto and pizza as well as meat and fish dishes. As the restaurant is in the pedestrian zone, al fresco dining is the order of the day when the weather’s good, enabling you to watch the world go by as you eat.
Another Italian restaurant, L’Artista, specialises in making pizza using its own freshly made dough. But there’s also a wide menu of Italian favourites, including pasta and other traditional Italian dishes.
If you’re in the mood for a Lebanese experience, Tarboush has the food and feel of popular Middle Eastern cafés. There’s an extensive menu of mezze, lamb and chicken dishes, and ingredients are locally sourced wherever possible.
If you fancy a steak, try Middletons Steakhouse & Grill which also serves grills and burgers – but also with veggie options. The set lunch menu looks good value, making it a great place for a working lunch.
If you like Southern-style American food, and like your milkshakes sweet, Meat & Shake is the place to be. Check the website for special offers.
If you’re looking for Pakistani and Indian food, head down to the Taste of Lahore restaurant, the first London restaurant to serve Chinuty Kuna Ghosht, a traditional Punjabi masala dish. Also available for delivery via Uber Eats and Deliveroo.
