THOMPSON St Albans
THOMPSON St Albans offers a relaxed and affordable fine dining experience, without the pretence sometimes associated with formal dining. Here, you will find a tranquil setting, ever-changing menus that are dictated by the seasons and great value for money.
Chef and owner Phil Thompson utilises his classic training along with his natural skill and flair for creating delicious flavour combinations that showcase his own modern style. Pop along at lunchtime and dine from the set menu, which is priced at just £23.50 for two courses and £27.50 for three. The evening pre-theatre menu is equally reasonable, offering three courses for £27.50 between 6pm and 6.45pm – orders are to be placed with the kitchen by 7pm. On Sunday a traditional roast lunch menu is available, priced at £32.50 for two courses and £36.50 for three courses. The seven-course tasting menu is £69 with five courses priced at £59, and an optional wine flight to complement the flavours of each dish for £45 and £35 retrospectively, per person. The quality and presentation of the food is of paramount importance to Phil Thompson and the team at THOMPSON St Albans. They are just as passionate about customer service, and thrive on offering the highest standards to ensure that customers leave feeling pampered and looking forward to their next visit.
In line with the seasonal food menu, Phil and the front-of-house team create seasonal cocktails that are subtle, well-balanced and offer a taste of pure decadence. The beverage offerings also include a wide variety of intriguing spirits and a medley of expertly chosen fine wines.
The restaurant is popular with large groups and can cater for parties looking for a place to hold their special celebration or a business meeting. The terrace and conservatory are great for dining outside in the sunny months; the quaint Victorian-style courtyard – with jasmine, honeysuckle, shrubs and flowers – and the conservatory, which features three French doors that open out onto the terrace, can seat a further 20 guests.
