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

Lovely fresh sandwiches cakes and scones were enjoyed by our entire party. There were a variety of teas to choose from, although one tea bag per pot (which serves 3 cups) was a bit of a surprise. Once we had finished tea, we were not offered any additional sandwiches or cakes which is unusual when you go out for afternoon... More

We had a family lunch of 16 people and the service was out of this world. Food and staff were wonderful. Can't rate this hotel high enough. Thank you Richard (manager)for all your hospitality.

We have visited here for a few company xmas meals. The service is always outstanding. The scenery is beautiful and for a minute when relaxing with your colleagues, work is not thought about. The garden view is refreshing whilst eating. The xmas decor is special and different. Large car parking area. Welcomed in by a door man. You do feel... More

Nine of us went for Sunday lunch, celebrating our parent's wedding anniversary. We sat in the lounge area for drinks before our meal and had Pimms. After waiting for some considerable time, the drinks were served but tasted awful. We complained, and they confessed there was something wrong with the lemonade, suggesting they knew this before they even served them.... More

Description
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.
