Muddy says: Lussmanns Tring offers sustainable and delicious food in a stylish art deco interior.
Lussmanns Tring is the newest and fifth addition to this group of independent Hertfordshire restaurants. It’s in a plum position: a former bank on the High Street in Tring. It’s full of lovely art deco features, and the former bank manager’s office is now a private dining room.
Lussmanns continues to win awards for its celebrated local and sustainable food. It’s part of the Sustainable Restaurant Association; Andrei Lussmann is a founding member. Regulars on the menu include Sussex woodland-reared pork and duck rillettes and chalk stream sea trout. For the meaty minded, Rhug Estate-reared organic lamb shoulder shepherd’s pie is a winner and the signature MSC house fishcake baby spinach, caper and parsley butter sauce is always a favourite. At Muddy Herts we’ve pretty much worked our way through the puddings on offer and can recommend the lemon posset and the seasonal fruit crumble.
This is a great restaurant which manages to combine informality with elegant style. The set menu is brilliant value and hugely popular with regulars.
