Tapas / Small Plates
Humo [oo-moh], is a modern firehouse situated in the heart of Watford, serving Spanish inspired meat, seafood, fish, and seasonal vegetables cooked in a charcoal and wood oven.

The furnace reaches temperatures of over 300 degrees Celsius so the produce is seared and smoked in seconds, making sure the flavour sings on your palate, and not on the plate.

The restaurant boasts a beautiful, seated island bar, a peephole into the working kitchen and covers for over 100 guests. The a la carte menu is purposely focused on dishes that dance in the fire, and the specials menu celebrates the produce only available seasonally.

The wine list is carefully designed to pair with the menu and comprises of a sophisticated range of wines from around the world. The bar also features a range of spirits, beers, classic and inventive cocktails for your pleasure.

    First time here but it the last. Everything about this restaurant is great. Looked after from the minute we walked through the door. Food gorgeous and service impeccable. It was our waiter’s first night and I can’t remember the last time I had such great service. Great DJ - music he played was perfect! Will definitely be back.

    Waited 55mins for starters then only 1 came out my partner had nearly finished hers by the time mine arrived then was told we would be looked after because of the delay we then waited a long time for our main course which spoilt the evening which was a shame as the food was good

    Visited on Valentine's day and had the fixed price menu. Really enjoyed the selection of starters - in particular the padron peppers were very well seasoned and the croqueta's were excellent. We both enjoyed our mains - sea bass and slow cooked short rib (lovely sauce on the latter) and the desserts were delicious. Good selection of drinks and a lively vibe. Service was excellent too - relaxed and friendly. Happy to recommend!

    Went to Humo for Valentines day - they had a set menu for the day, lovely food came out hot. The meat was top quality and you could taste the different. Live music for the evening and a lovely ambience. The interior design was top notch. The cocktails are so worth it. Defo want to go back to explore more of their menu. Highly recommend it!

    Our new favourite restaurant in Watford - Best dish I’ve had so far is the half chicken with a side of truffle mash. We have been a few times now and it’s been consistently good each time. Well above average restaurant for Watford town centre. The staff, particularly the host, is so welcoming and attentive it creates a great atmosphere. The decor is tasteful and really lovely. There’s a happy hour and a good selection of wines, what more could you ask for?

    Best restaurant in watford so far with live DJ playing cool tunes. Limited menu with variety of options which was great and the food was nice. To cap it off the in house DJ knew his stuff and had people dancing in their sits and in the restaurant. Also has a great bar with lots of drinks options. Great atmosphere, great food, drinks and restaurant. I can’t wait to visit again.
