Been a few times now and has always been exceptional. Unfortunately our visit last night didn’t quite hit the mark.... We were placed on the top floor by a very attentive host, unfortunately we were put in the corner, literally! We were under the skylight...More

Nice venue and nice staff. Went with a friend and children. We ordered off of the lunch menu and had the beetroot starter which was nice and the Hunters chicken which was ok. Despite this lunch special menu it still was fairly expensive. Didn’t like...More

Thank you for your feedback. Our main toilets are on the lower ground floor, the toilet you are referring to is only really for our disabled guests. Best Wishes, Laura Easter (laura@lussmanns.com)

Sustainable fish and organic meat (some). The venue is beautiful and the service is good. Its set menu boosts quality British food at a reasonable price. Friday night fish and chips is the best though!

Nice place, burger was slightly underdone for my liking asked for it to be cooked a bit more, but was told this is how they serve it.

Called in here for lunch today. It was very quiet. The set lunch menu offers great value for money. My daughter and I had two courses. We paid a supplement to have the steak frites. It was delicious. Cooked to perfection. The restaurant was sparkling...More

Nice location and friendly service but sadly the food was terribly average. I was very disappointed. We skipped out on dessert and coffee.
