Restaurant round-up

New restaurant round-up

There's been a flurry of new restaurant openings in St Albans in recent months. After the arrival of the Meating Room - a specialist burger restaurant in Catherine Street earlier in the year - former Cafe Nes owners refurbished and rebranded as Relish Real Burgers.

George Street restaurant, 4 Nations opened its doors in July, offering a culinary tour of Great British cuisine.

The Beech House, part of the Oakmann Inns Group opened on the old Veer Dhara site in St Peter's Street last month, serving breakfast, brunch, burgers, pizza and coffee too.

Finally Prime Steak and Grill opened on London Road on 29 Sep.  Marketing itself as an upmarket steak restaurant with prices to match.

If you've visited any of these restaurants we'd love to hear from you.  Why not write a review and let us know what you think?
