We went for a weekday lunch - about seven tables taken, so little problem with service, which was courteous and mostly efficient.....though I do deplore the informality which younger waiting staff need to have bred out of them. LH is not alone in this. The...More

The ambience is nice and the hotel is grand (but very far from being a 5 star hotel). However the food for that price tag was very dull. Wine list fairly basic. The tasting menu is not really worth the price.

We had dinner on Saturday night which rates amongst the worst meal I've eaten in years. It was truly, utterly and indefensibly atrocious. The kitchen and Chef need to get their act together, seriously. My husbands starter was barely visible on the plate (something with...More

Description
Nestled inside a five-star hotel surrounded by acres of parkland, the Wernher Restaurant offers a spectacular setting for every-day dinners and special occasions alike. Named after one of Luton Hoo���s most distinguished former owners, the dining room features marble panelwork, opulent fabrics and sparkling chandeliers that wouldn���t look out of place in the Palace of Versailles. The restaurant was recently awarded two AA Rosettes and has been praised for its creative use of local, seasonal produce. Head Chef Kevin Clark specialises in modern British dishes like Dover sole with sauce grenobloise; roast breast of guinea fowl with sweet potato gnocchi; and fillet of beef with beetroot dauphinoise. With exquisite food and flawless service as standard, the Wernher offers an unforgettable dining experience.
