Beyond the place feeling mildly pretentious for the quality of food, it was an enjoyable meal, although the combined flavours of the starters were disappointingly bland. The lamb main I chose was cooked to perfection though, and the dessert was excellent, along with the general presentation of the... More

My trip to Luton Hoo was as a result of a Mother's Day gift to my mum from my sister in Australia. Anyone looking to book an afternoon tea should seriously consider Luton Hoo, my mum has been to The Ritz a number of times for afternoon tea and she thought the service offered here was excellent.

Luton Hoo is a wonderful experience for afternoon tea. Sitting in the hotel which used to be Lady Zia Werner's house, often visited by the Queen and Prince Phillip. Just sit and saok up the atmosphere. Nothing is too much trouble for the staff. Great experience.

Lovely setting. Very relaxed. Staff attentive but not intrusive. Food delicious. Very busy but tables and chairs all very well spaced do you can chat without having to compete with other people. Highly recommend. Great value for money

Such a beautiful lunch in a lovely setting for the mother in laws birthday and great cocktails. I have previously visited for a work function too and was amazed at how well they catered for our large group, the best food I have had when dining with such a large group (50+ people).

Afternoon tea in the nicest setting imaginable. Words do not do the hotel or the food justice. It is a little pricy but if you know someone that deserves to be spoiled you will not be disappointed - just go

Loved afternoon tea here, the surroundings were beautiful, the food and service were brilliant. We weren't rushed to finish, we were able to enjoy the afternoon with plenty of top ups of tea...perfect. Would highly recommend to anyone of any age! Best afternoon tea around by far!
