With its sophisticated combination of natural wood, mirrors, comfy furnishings, polished cocktail shakers and soft lighting, La Luna revels in style, and not just in terms of decor. The brasserie, cocktail bar and lounge boast contemporary dishes and extraordinary cocktails worthy of the AA rosette the venue holds. Luna Lounge is an intimate space that encourages relaxation while you sample inventive concoctions from the delightful cocktail menu. Crafted by the talented mixologists using premium spirits, homemade cordials and shaped ice, each cocktail is professionally created with fun in mind. Couple this with the diverse, seasonal menus and efficient service, and La Luna isn’t to be missed.
Foodies can bank on stunning dishes served with fl air and passion, created by head chef Craig Brookes. Lunchtime sees starters such as barbecue belly pork accompanied by a feta, beetroot, sunblushed tomato and rocket salad, and warm goat’s cheese on a chargrilled crumpet, with mustard dressing and salad listed on the menu. Main courses such as slow-braised lamb and 6oz sirloin steak are always popular, especially thanks to the lunchtime deal, available Tuesday to Saturday from noon until 3.30pm. You can snap up two courses for £12.99 or go all out with three courses for £15.99, which includes a complimentary glass of wine. Chocoholics must save room for the chocolate plate, which comprises a Black Forest mousse chocolate pot, iced chocolate and Grand Marnier parfait and warm chocolate brownie.
Look to the à la carte menu for lip-smacking favourites such as pan-fried sea bass, warm shredded crispy duck, and braised and caramelised lamb shank. Sweet-toothed diners can round off their feast with Eton Mess or comforting bread and butter pudding. The friendly team will provide a menu and activity pack for little ones, so why not bring the whole family to La Luna?
Head to the large outdoor area and curl up in an alcove with a fur throw and tapas. Behind the restaurant lies the Secret Garden, embellished with timber decking, mood lighting and water features; you can enjoy La Luna come rain or shine.
For a real treat, look to the three private garden rooms available to reserve for any occasion, complete with a TV, fi re, sofas and even a direct telephone line to the bar, so you can sit back and relax.
