Staff were very helpful keeping it all a surprise, dining room beautifully set out for us with a round table in the centre of dining room. All parties had excellent rooms, but it was a little disappointing that an upstairs room had been designated for my dad at 93 years of age, which I had mentioned when booking. He ended... More

Breakfast was very good. Dinner was not the kind of food I was use to. Very nice setting and not too noisy.

Food is good but it feels like the waiters have never done this job before. All very clunky, orders wrong, not offered a drink and not very attentive. Better places to go if you're spending this amount.

Two of us made an impromptu visit to St Michael's manor for lunch yesterday as the Waffle House was overflowing. The greeting we received was just a little frosty. Our request for a light lunch was met with some confusion, and was eventually translated as we were there for bar snacks. We were told we would be "allowed" to sit... More

Beautiful house in the heart of St Albans. We had an excellent family lunch service also was very good no complaints. Ignore any bad reviews this place is excellent - if you want superfast service go to McDonald's.

The hotel is in a pleasant location with a pond next to the garden and the car park. The restaurant is spacious with high ceilings and extends into a conservatory. It all looked clean and tidy. Staff smartly dressed and polite and seemed knowledgable about the food. The food is artistically presented and there is not a great deal of... More

This is such a beautiful house, and has very nice style. We went as a party of five before Christmas for lunch. The lunch itself was cooked very well and presented beautifully, you do not get big portions here, so do not expect it! Service was not too bad. Just after Christmas we had relations over from the USA and... More

Don't need to say much more than that this was the best meal we can remember eating in a very long time. Service was excellent too.

A sizeable group was gathered for a birthday and had agreed a meal which turned out not as was planned. The mistakes had to be covered by the customers rather than the owners. A first for me.

Description
Our beautiful orangery-style Lake Restaurant offers amazing views overlooking our fabulous garden and lake. Two rosette dining at it's best.

Offering a range of award winning modern British cuisine to suit all tastes, diners can choose from an A La Carte or Lake menu. The latter provides brasserie-style seasonal food, changed on a fortnightly basis from only £18 for two or £22 for three courses.

A wonderful place to celebrate and very popular for Sunday lunch. Great to relax and enjoy a delicious meal with probably the best views and location in Hertfordshire.

The Lake Restaurant opens daily for breakfast, lunch and dinner. Otherwise try a bar snack or one of our famous Afternoon teas in the hotel lounge.
