Beautiful house in the heart of St Albans. We had an excellent family lunch service also was very good no complaints. Ignore any bad reviews this place is excellent - if you want superfast service go to McDonald's.

The hotel is in a pleasant location with a pond next to the garden and the car park. The restaurant is spacious with high ceilings and extends into a conservatory. It all looked clean and tidy. Staff smartly dressed and polite and seemed knowledgable about the food. The food is artistically presented and there is not a great deal of... More

This is such a beautiful house, and has very nice style. We went as a party of five before Christmas for lunch. The lunch itself was cooked very well and presented beautifully, you do not get big portions here, so do not expect it! Service was not too bad. Just after Christmas we had relations over from the USA and... More

Don't need to say much more than that this was the best meal we can remember eating in a very long time. Service was excellent too.

A sizeable group was gathered for a birthday and had agreed a meal which turned out not as was planned. The mistakes had to be covered by the customers rather than the owners. A first for me.

Wonderful Christmas party night here - new owners have changed format slightly but not detracted from the good food & service we have expected & experienced for years under the previous owners.

We paid for their New Year's Eve casino, 7 course dinner, dance night. What an excellent evening. Lots of fun, fab food, fab atmosphere. We will go again. Only downside was the drinks. We pre ordered bottles of wine. We were told we only pay for what we drank. The waitress just kept pouring 'pints' of wine at a time,... More

Visited for afternoon tea in between Christmas and New Year with friends, one of which was here from New York and this their first experience of afternoon tea in this country. The quality and choice of cakes was poor, scones were dry and sandwiches were not replenished, very unusual considering the price. One positive good selection of tea. Staff were... More

Our beautiful orangery-style Lake Restaurant offers amazing views overlooking our fabulous garden and lake. Two rosette dining at it's best.

Offering a range of award winning modern British cuisine to suit all tastes, diners can choose from an A La Carte or Lake menu. The latter provides brasserie-style seasonal food, changed on a fortnightly basis from only £18 for two or £22 for three courses.

A wonderful place to celebrate and very popular for Sunday lunch. Great to relax and enjoy a delicious meal with probably the best views and location in Hertfordshire.

The Lake Restaurant opens daily for breakfast, lunch and dinner. Otherwise try a bar snack or one of our famous Afternoon teas in the hotel lounge.
