TOM & BEN
We've been best mates since we were about 5 years old and have grown up in Hitchin loving food, pretty much basing our lives around it.
You'll find a constantly changing menu here at The Groundworks. We draw our inspiration from London eateries, middle-eastern cafés, so whilst it isn't easily defined, it's certainly packs some taste. Along with food, we're passionate about creating a communal environment. Somewhere you can come and meet friends and family, enjoy some great coffee and meaningful conversations and generally feel pleasantly welcome.
We just hope that you enjoy our shop as much as we do and perhaps find something inside to surprise you along the way.
