Adam’s Brasserie at Luton Hoo Hotel
There aren’t many establishments in which you might find yourself dining in the company of Emma Thompson, Stephen Fry and Hugh Grant, but Adam’s Brasserie is one such place. Guests are invited to dine under the gaze of stars who have appeared in films shot on location at Luton Hoo. Housed in the original coach house and stable complex designed by famous 18th-century architect Robert Adam, Adam’s Brasserie offers a relaxed atmosphere coupled with an excellent menu featuring stylish, contemporary dishes and familiar favourites made from seasonal and local produce.
Overlooking the stable courtyard, guests can choose between cosy booths with leather banquettes and smart tables that are ideal for couples, families and business colleagues, as well as golfers who have enjoyed a round on Luton Hoo’s adjoining parkland course. The brasserie menu changes seasonally, but you can expect innovative starters such as Stilton and spiced red wine-poached pear salad and torched Brixham mackerel. Follow with the rack of cured pork loin with caramelised pineapple, Hollandaise and potato fondant or a traditional fish pie topped with creamed potatoes and buttered tenderstem broccoli. Needless to say, there are also plenty of tempting desserts such as a chocolate salted caramel tart with honeycomb ice cream, and lemon posset with vanilla shortbread. Enjoy two courses for £16.50 or three courses for £21 from the lunch menu, available Monday to Saturday.
