Breakfast was very good. Dinner was not the kind of food I was use to. Very nice setting and not too noisy.

Food is good but it feels like the waiters have never done this job before. All very clunky, orders wrong, not offered a drink and not very attentive. Better places to go if you're spending this amount.

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.

I don't know. They have a helpful and accommodating staff who I'm sure will be pleased to advise, and it might be a good idea to make enquiry of them before booking.
Is there plenty of car parking on site, please.

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.
