My son took me for afternoon tea here for a Mother's Day treat. And what a treat l sandwiches , scones and cakes plus never ending cups of tea. The staff were very attentive and the atmosphere very relaxing. A very enjoyable afternoon.

Excellent service, delicious food and beautiful surroundings. Particularly lovely in the Summer when you can go for a leisurely stroll in the grounds; however cosy in Winter when the log fires are lit. Well worth treating friends and/or family to a wonderfully indulgent experience!

My Mum and I enjoyed our tea here. The grounds were beautiful as was the room we were seated in. The service was a little slow but the staff were very friendly and the food was lovely. Overall we had a very nice time.

Every year we treat ourselves to afternoon tea here on New Years Day rather than going through the expense of going out New Years Eve. It's a welcome soothing decadence after the fast paced Christmas.

Going up the drive to Luton Hoo invoked sweet memories from my childhood,with the impressive lawns,golf course & lastly the house. Going through the main doors of this impressive building you pass the beautiful main dining room over looking the gardens down to the lake. I was with 2 of my lovely friends ( one who paid for this )... More

We (4 adults, 1 toddler, 1 baby) had a lovely afternoon at Luton Hoo. Great sandwiches, cake and tea; all in pretty spectacular location. At around £27 per head (half that for children's afternoon tea) visits here are more for special occasions than anything else, but they are certainly enjoyable. We will undoubtedly be back.

We celebrated my daughter 21st birthday last week at Luton Hoo and everything was just perfect. The meal was perfect, the presentation was perfect and the service was perfect. The food was succulent and the service was courteous. Highly recommended.

I have been here quite a few times now as a guest of various people from overseas. As soon as you enter off of the main road, you know that you are heading towards somewhere that little bit different. The long, and I mean long sweeping drive way, leads you past some beautiful grounds, the golf course and an assortment... More

Wonderful food, superb service, fantastic surroundings. A great experience. Only slight niggle would be the lack of ladies toilet facilities, which meant a queue. Otherwise perfection.
