Wernher Restaurant at Luton Hoo

Luton Hoo Hotel, Golf and Spa, The Mansion House, LUTON, LU1 3TQ

2 rosettes

The 'Hoo' in question is actually an old Saxon word for the spur of a hill. Straddling the counties of Hertfordshire and Bedfordshire, Luton Hoo is a striking and rather stately house with impeccable credentials: Robert Adam and Sir Robert 'British Museum' Smirke are responsible for the magnificent façade, 'Capability' Brown sorted out the gardens, and Elite Hotels have provided every comfort for the 21st-century visitor. There's a golf course, spa facilities, splendidly handsome rooms and a restaurant which is done-out in a lavish, elegant manner, with marble panelling, ornate chandeliers, opulent fabrics and immaculately dressed tables. The menu is based around well-sourced produce and follows a modish path. Start, perhaps, with crispy goats' cheese with braised rocket, tomato, pine nut and red onion sauce, before the likes of roast rack of lamb with beetroot pommes purée, sautéed kale, roast baby turnips and thyme jus, and, to finish, warm roasted fig tart with orange ice cream and crème anglaise. Adam's Brasserie (see entry) offers an alternative.
