We treated our parents to lunch on the Terrence mid week. The food was lovely and plentiful (although a small selection). The setting is beautiful, the grounds and the house are stunning. The service could have been better for what you pay, however was okay. The real bonus was we could take our dog which really made it a great... More

Booked for afternoon tea after a Land Rover Experience at Luton Hoo (which was awesome, thanks Land Rover) arrived at the hotel early as we'd booked for 4.30 but arrived at 4pm but this wasn't an issue. The hotel is lovely and we had high hopes for an enjoyable delight!. We opted for the champagne Afternoon tea which pushed the... More

I visited luron loo last weekend in a party of 12 for a friends 50th. As I am gluten/wheat intolerant I phoned ahead to enquire as to what they offered as a gluten free alternative to normal afternoon tea? I was informed by the receptionist that the gluten free afternoon tea completely "mirrored" the normal afternoon tea menu. On arrival... More

Visited for the first time for my husband's birthday, the location is lovely but the food was very disappointing. The starters were so bland that neither tasted of anything and mine was mackeral! We both had tagliatelle for main but had to ask for a spoon, whereas other places we go would have automatically changed the cutlery to suit -... More

Five of us went for afternoon tea last Thursday afternoon. First impressions were not good as the path from the car park to the front of the house (where us 'afternoon teaers' are not allowed to park...) went through areas of untended gardens and large weed patches. The formal gardens were well laid out though and interesting to wander around.... More

There were 16 of us from the office that went for morning coffee at Luton Hoo. We were seated in comfy armchairs with a decent bit of space for us to enjoy. The staff were very attentive and kept and eye on us all morning without being obtrusive. You don't get much change from a fiver for a tea or... More

Shared afternoon tea for a special occasion in the opulent but subdued surroundings of this elegant mansion. The tea was more than we could consume at this time of day and beautifully presented. It was impossible to finish a cup of one of the variety of specialist teas without one or other of the attendants gliding past and offering to... More

We had dinner at the Brasserie at Luton Hoo, It was very pleasant and well worth the price which was nowhere near as expensive as I thought it would be. We had a delicious 3 course meal in charming surroundings that have been frequented by many famous people. The grounds and Luton Hoo are extremely well manicured and we took... More
