Review on Lytton's Restaurant at Mercure Letchworth Hall Hotel

Lyttons is the signature restaurant set within the Mercure Letchworth Hall Hotel, a 17th century manor house surrounded by 8 acres of lovely grounds, home to Muntjac deer and the famous Letchworth Black squirrels. The restaurant keeps things plain and simple with a minimalist design bathed in natural light and elegant gold chandeliers providing a touch of glamour.

The kitchen is committed to sound ethics when it comes to sourcing ingredients for its dishes and there is a strong focus on supporting small local producers. Seasonal menus offer dishes in the shape of pulled ham hock terrine, grain mustard, spiced apple, gherkins, pickled vegetables and ciabatta toast amongst the starters, followed by a main course of slow cooked Blythburgh real free range pork belly, lemon, rosemary, garlic marinade, colcannon, sticky shallot gravy and apple sauce or from the sea seared Scottish salmon supreme, wilted greens, potato crush and chive butter sauce. When it comes to desserts you might see vanilla crème brulee, sugar crust paired with shortbread biscuits or Oreo cookies and cream cheesecake, cherries in kirsch and chantilly cream.

Letchworth Hall Hotel has 87 delightfully appointed bedrooms should you wish to extend your stay and enjoy the surrounding countryside.

    Poor menu for coach party


    I was part of a small coach party [17] staying for 3 nights and quite a few, myself included, were unhappy overall with standard of treatment we received. On arrival there was no information given to the party on the coach, such as procedures and meal times. Consequently, no-one was told that we were all meant to dine together at a designated time and those that arrived when the dining room opened were kept waiting.

    On the first night there was butter on the table but when we asked for bread rolls we were told that this had not been allowed for for our party [so why was there butter?!!]
    We did get the rolls eventually.

    The size of some of the food portions were very poor for a main meal. A roast dinner was twice the size of my meal of a tiny piece of salmon with a minute portion of vegetables. All the meals seemed to be bulked up with excessive potato [cheaper] and virtually non-existant vegetables. A roast dinner had mash and roast potatoes but a desert-spoon size of cabbage leaves with a skinny carrot and parsnip, and no extra vegetables available when asked for.

    One meal I had was supposed to be chicken skewers and there was one small skewer with 3 small bits of meat and 2 small vegetable chunks, a few rocket leaves and a small cup of chips. The meat on the skewer was dried up. Meals for other people included tough gamom and runny cottage pie.

    Some of the staff could have smiled a bit!

    Menu choice was quite limited with a lot of items repeated on other days. This, I assume, was a menu just for our party. I find it hard to believe that this would be the quality and quantity offered to full paying quests.

    The self-service breakfasts were good, with a large choice.
