The Oak & Avocado


0.5 miles
Noke by Thistle, Watford Road, St Albans, Hertfordshire, AL2 3DS
Situated in an attractive country-house-style hotel, surrounded by beautifully manicured private gardens, The Oak & Avocado lies just minutes from the centre of the historic cathedral market town of St Albans, enticing guests, day-trippers and locals alike. With its wooden floors, high ceiling rafters and fulllength windows, this is a light, contemporary bar and dining space; a more informal sister to the hotel's award-winning restaurant, The Noke.

The atmosphere is decidedly relaxed in The Oak & Avocado - flat-screen televisions play background music and the quiz machine is guaranteed to keep punters entertained. From light bites and sandwiches to home-cooked classics and sumptuous desserts, the modern European menu has every whim catered for and all dishes are available from 4.30pm through to 10.30pm. If you are grabbing a mid-afternoon snack, the roast beef sandwiches with red onion and wholegrain mustard, or the prawn and lemon mayonnaise, are particularly good. Want to linger over a long, lazy lunch' The Oak's helpful staff will seat you at the sweeping bar or show you to a table with views of the grounds. Salmon fishcakes, sweet chilli chicken salad and potted seafood with rustic bread make for excellent bar snacks, best washed down with one of the many beers on tap or a glass of wine from the extensive list. Main courses include hearty portions of pork and leek sausages, buttered mash and red onion gravy, and lamb shank with roasted root vegetables, sun-dried tomatoes, rosemary and red wine jus. An Asian influence sees creamy chicken tikka massala and Thai red chicken curry with sticky rice offer a spicy kick.

Bag one of the comfy leather sofas next to the attractive ornamental fireplace and round off your laid-back feasting experience with a sticky toffee and walnut pudding, apple crumble or chocolate orange pudding. Freshly made coffee or herbal tea adds to the comfy home-from-home experience - you might just find yourself wanting to stay the night.
