We reveal the winner for Restaurant of the Year

There is lots of fine dining in Hertfordshire and perhaps for you this is what makes a fantastic restaurant. But don’t discount the local endeavour just around the corner that perhaps produces simple dishes but does them really well, has a great atmosphere and fantastic service. Does the menu shout local, quality and great value for money?

This category is sponsored by Moneyhill Interiors Ltd., read more about them here.

The finalists...

Auberge du Lac, Brocket Hall, nr Welwyn

In the beautiful 543-acre grounds of the Brocket Hall Estate, Auberge du Lac was re-launched at the beginning of 2017 with a new team and reinvigorated passion. Head chef Matthew Edmonds has curated a series of seasonal menus that feature ingredients he hand-picks from in and around the estate and sources from local producers – all to be enjoyed in the most idyllic of settings, right on the lake’s edge.

Bricklayers Arms, Flaunden

In beautiful surroundings down leafy country lanes between Latimer and Chipperfield you’ll find the award-winning, flint and ivy-clad Bricklayers Arms. This 18th century pub and restaurant is a destination-led eatery offering locally-sourced dishes with an English-French fusion menu with wines to match. Bon appétit!

Dylans – The Kings Arms, St Albans

On George Street in the heart of the cathedral quarter in St Albans, we offer a snacking menu in the front room and an a la carte casual fine dining menu in the back room. Our bar stocks craft beers and over 50 gins.

And the winner is...

Dylans – The Kings Arms, St Albans

Our readers loved the relaxed, casual setting of this contemporary bar restaurant. One reader even chose to propose to his girlfriend there and were treated to a celebratory dessert from the attentive and friendly team. Our judges loved the local, seasonal menus and fabulous selection of craft beers and fine wines.
