My husband and I booked this as our 35th wedding ann treat for ourselves!!! What a treat It was !!!!! From the moment we walked into your restaurant to the moment we left .........everything about the evening was fantastic.....ambience ....food...service ...excellent !!!!! It’s just a shame that the other couple who sat next to us hadn’t been just a little bit more friendly...some folks just don’t want to talk do they ????😊😊
Will definitely return when we next find ourselves in the area !!!
Thanks again!!

We only go to Lussmanns for special occasions so that it stays a special place when we do go. We have never been disappointed in any of our visits. This visit was one of the best ones. My wife started with broccoli soup with sourdough bread whilst I had the chicken liver parfait. She then had the signature dish of steak onglet with frites and I had the highland red deer hotpot with pickled red cabbage, leeks and apples. We both finished with the single origin dark chocolate mousse with honeycomb. Every dish was a delight and you can taste that it was freshly cooked.

The staff are great and have found the perfect balance between leaving you alone without ignoring you whilst neither being too attentive and always on your shoulder. They are always available when you need them and they do not pressure you to finish. They have a full knowledge of the menu and are comfortable in discussing the options. They also make sure that they open the front door for you when you leave which is a nice personal touch.

This a great restaurant and we can not recommend it enough.

This was my first ever trip to Lussman’s - no idea why I havent been before - even though I live in Hertford. And I’m now planning another one as soon as possible.
Booking was simple - online.
Table ready and staff had obviously taken the time to read our details.
Ambience really inviting and friendly - no rowdiness.
We were given plenty of time to order - no rush - but staff nearby if we needed anything.
Food was delicious - we all agreed.
Very enjoyable occasion.

The waitress we had was really friendly, thoughtful and helpful. Unfortunatley a rather loud gentleman arrived at the table next to us towards the end of the evening and we weren’t really interested in his teaching experiences. Other than that a great dinner.

We use Lussmans on a regular basis and have always been impressed by them. The food is delicious and there is a real attention to detail in the presentation that we love. We also enjoy the fact that their food is responsibly sourced, sustainable and a lot of it is organic. Their fish and fresh vegetable sides are particularly good. We always go earlier in the evening so I imagine the ambience would be even better later in the evening with "mood" lighting. They have a very good value set menu but the al a carte won't break the bank either!

A lot of good things, and one small niggle. Lussman's has a nice atmosphere: it's bright and airy, lots of natural light, it's not too loud, but it has a nice energy.

I ate the smoked trout (really great) and the smoked haddock in some kind of hollandaise and poached egg (also really good stuff) and the black cherry tiramasu (Black forest gateau in disguise, which is no bad thing in my book). Everyone I was with loved their food too and the restaurant was super cool about us bringing a buggy in. The toilets are nice, and the waiting times were just right.

The one niggle is that our waiter kept trying to upsell us on everything. We order a carafe of wine, they say hey why not have a bottle? We order some food, they say, hey you're going to want to get the extra sides with that. And these ones. Why not get some coffees now?

And when we said no thanks, they were a bit off about it.

They had already replaced the normal menu with a set Mother's day menu, which I guess is fair enough, but they seemed to be under instruction to try and sell us extra stuff all the time. Having to keep saying no is awkward.

So, it's a great restaurant, and I'd probably go again, but geez, just chill out a bit.

The waiter got the order wrong... Pork instead of chicken arrived, no vegetables arrived with shepherd's pie. We had to wait one hour for the food... Booked online being told on arrival they need the table back in 2 hours. Yet we only received the food after an hour.

As always, perfect, I eat here often and Lussmans always delivers consistently great food, the Salt Marsh Lamb salad was spot on, smoked haddock cooked to perfection and followed up with the orange bread and butter pudding.

Norman, our waiter was happy,knowledgable and always there when you needed him.
