It's a beautiful location let down by willing but untrained kitchen and serving staff. We brought another couple here as a treat. My wife ordered Caesar Salad and the waitress specifically checked if she wanted anchovies. But no anchovies when the food arrived. We asked for anchovies and they brought a saucer with anchovies 20 minutes later when the food... More

Our visit to Luton Hoo was purchased as a gift from our Son and Daughter. We were greeted on arrival and shown to our table which was situated by one of the enormous windows allowing us to look out onto the beautiful gardens. Our waitress introduced herself and asked if we would prefer to have our champagne before or after... More

Luton Hoo is an impressive venue for afternoon tea with its high ceilings and misty grounds. Service at the venue was extremely professional. VAT is not included in the advertised price so be prepared.

We celebrated a birthday here, afternoon tea with bubbles! The best cucumber sandwich I have ever tasted. I've had afternoon tea in several places but this tops them all. The quality of the bread is exceptional. We will be back.

We visited for our wedding anniversary and had a lovely afternoon. The food was presented beautifully and the service was fantastic! The ambience is lovely, the only thing that lets the place down were guests dress code which brings the standards down of a boutique hotel!

We thought we would just have some drinks and a sandwich so ordered a glass of red wine, half a lager and two rounds of sandwiches. First of all a glass of rose appeared so we sent it back and eventually received a glass of red wine. Then they said they could not find lager on the menu and could... More

This is the house that used to be owned by the Weiner family. When I was a lot younger the house was occupied by Lady Zia Werner..who was a decendant of the Ztrar of Russia. I seem to remember that there was a collection of Faberge eggs. The Queen and Prince Philip used to visit the odd weekend for shooting.... More

We were given a Gift voucher entitling us to Afternoon Tea with champagne. We made a reservation without any problem and enjoyed the drive through the park. The main car park is a few yards away from the house but there is alternative parking right in front of the building. We were greeted at the door, relieved of our coats... More

Like the earlier review this was a present from my daughter. We did think it was a beautiful setting but as we were placed on a sofa looking at skirting board that needs painting on walkway between bar and downstairs cloakroom - it lost some of its allure! Not sure why seated in this room as we were 3 adults... More

Visited Luton Hoo with 15 of my friends yesterday for morning coffee, having booked well in advance, so,that staff would be aware we were large group. Beautiful setting but the experience was marred by the poor service and unwelcoming manner of some of the waiting staff. Tea and coffees were delivered within half an hour of ordering, but no food...
