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.

The House is a beautiful old mansion, the restaurant is decorated in an era gone by many years ago, silk rugs hang on the walls, hugh windows are draped in the most exquisite drapes. No doubt about you will feel as if you are stepping back in time. But that is only as far as the decor. The staff are... More

What a wonderful experience; Afternoon tea; so elegantly served. We were made to feel really special and the whole experience was great . This was a Christmas gift from last Christmas and we really chose a wonderful day today to have the Aternoon Tea with sunshine and warmth. Would highly recommend.

We were excited to be visiting Luton Hoo for Afternoon Tea for my wife's birthday but didn't have a great experience. Service- very poor. We must have been served by over 6 different staff throughout, all unattentive and poorly trained. When explaining what items were on the cake stand the waitress said I think it is xxxx but I can't... More

Me and my friend went for tea at the Hoo and had a great time! Food was great, staff were great and the atmosphere was lovely! They were happy for us to sit there and chat for hours and frequently topped us up with tea! Lovely! I think for the price they could offer a few more scones though!

My wife and i went to the hoo for afternoon tea to celebrate our 1st anniversary. The staff are wonderful...friendly and attentive without being overbearing. The food and coffee were delicious which we topped off with a rather nice glass of rose champagne. Overall a great afternoon which will definetly be repeated

I took a friend here as a gift for her 40th birthday. I bought a voucher through buyagift. The setting and location are beautiful and we felt transported back in time. Stunning lounge and the staircase down the hall is incredible. Afternoon tea itself was good but not brilliant. I was surprised to see on the menu that sandwich replenishments... More
