From dining, dancing, cocktails to cafe culture, your social guide

Where to start.   Where to start…  We Watfordians already know there are some incredible places to eat drink and enjoy socialising.  Whether we grab a rather nice coffee or want full on four courses (or more!).   So where would we recommend to you.

Let’s start with our High Street (historically it’s meant to be the longest in England, so plenty of mighty fine dining space)!  Supported by  Watford BID  (Business Improvement District),  the restaurants, bars and entertainment venues have been bustling and buzzing with activity and it was as sparkling festive season.

Here are some of the places to enjoy at the heart of the Town Centre, many of which take the must have Watford Gift Card  which can be used in over 145 places.

And don’t forget that it’s #VEGANUARY  so many places will have special vegan menus.  Here are a few for starters….
