Le Moulin Restaurant
Le Moulin is located on the site of Wheathampstead old mill, which dates back to the Domesday Book. Thanks to its waterside setting, the restaurant offers superb views over the river Lea and the mill race, yet is only just north of St Albans and within easy reach of London and Luton airport.
The expert chef prepares classical and modern French cuisine with Spanish, Portuguese and Italian influences. The ingredients are either grown locally or sourced from the wild, and the select à la carte menu varies to reflect the seasons with small changes made every week, providing variety for regular guests. In winter you might choose a warm salad with poached egg and lardons followed by sea bass fillet with a tapenade crust or roast fillet of lamb with a confit of shallots and tarragon jus. The marquise au chocolat forms the perfect ending, and a carefully picked selection of wines can accompany your meal.
The restaurant is delightfully intimate and characterful, making you feel like a family guest, and booking is essential. The whole dining room can be reserved for parties of up to 24 diners, takehome dinner parties and patisserie are available, and you can even have a hot or cold buffet lunch or dinner delivered to your home or office for special events and small weddings. Bookings can be made by telephone or email, or else directly via the online form.
