...the Broadway Hotel: Sunday lunch at....
I have stayed (once) at the Broadway but, as I have family in the town, I rarely eat out.
We had a coupon for their Sunday lunch, so we thought we'd try the Broadway carvery. I must admit the food was very pleasant indeed, with a good choice of carved meats and generous servings.
As with all UK carveries, someone carves the meat for you and then you help yourself to vegetables (several types available, including 2 types of potato and cauliflower/broccoli cheese) , gravy and sauces.
I chose the roast beef, which was excellent. Other meats available were roast pork, turkey and lamb. Although the vegetables were kept warm for self-service they were not over-cooked and not (as often happens) lukewarm. The 'traditional gravy' was just right and the individual Yorkshire puddings larger than usual.
We didn't have a pudding (dessert) but it was clear from the number of other people eating there that the Broadway is a popular place for locals to have their Sunday lunch.
Children are well catered-for, with plenty of highchairs available. Service was courteous and efficient.
If you are looking for a Sunday lunch in Letchworth, the Broadway offers a good-value option.

Restaurants: Variety of culinary delights
You'll find a variety of culinary delights in the town. From a quick bite to eat to a three-course meal, including Italian, Thai, Indian and traditional English cuisine. Here's a list of restaurants:
Here's a list of cafes and takeaways:
Three Horse Shoes: Sunday Roast and beer
This place is clearly a Sunday family gathering. The atmosphere is English, the food is traditional.
Favorite Dish: I got a Kronembourg and a delicious stuffed mushroom with a piece of chocolate cake.
The rest of the table shared a Sunday roast with veggies and gravy.
Though nothing special, I would recommend it as the atmosphere was really friendly (everybody sang happy birthday to a 80-old guest) and the service was quick and good.

Surfin' Cafe: Coffee, tea, toasties, sandwiches.......
No idea whatsoever why it should be called 'Surfin' ': there's no sea for miles, and it's not an Internet cafe!
but it's a very pleasant (and busy) place, with squashy sofas as well as tables.
Good coffee, a variety of teas, lots of interesting & home-made toasties/panini/sandwiches/bagels/cakes etc.
Very pleasant stopping place.
