About Auberge du Lac

The Brocket Hall Estate is home to two restaurants - Auberge du Lac and The Melbourne Club.

AUBERGE DU LAC
Housed in Brocket Hall’s former hunting lodge, Auberge du Lac enjoys a beautiful lakeside setting overlooking the stunning 543 acre country estate and the Hall itself.

Whether it is al fresco dining in summer at the water’s edge, or an intimate environment in the winter months, Auberge du Lac provides the right mood for every occasion. With a beautiful lounge, picturesque terrace and a host of tastefully decorated private dining rooms, capable of seating from 2 to 18 guests, the restaurant regularly caters for private dinners, ladies lunches, weddings, birthday parties and other celebrations.

THE MELBOURNE CLUB
At the heart of the Estate lies The Melbourne Club. The restaurant opens its door to the public for special events from Wine Dinners to Jazz Sunday Lunch. With views across the Broadwater Lake to Brocket Hall, The Melbourne Club is the perfect location to enjoy a drink on the terrace followed by lunch or dinner.

After having excellent lunch at A du L and walking around grounds, very dissapointed and surprised to not be allowed to take tea or refreshments in the golf club. The extra load from occasional diners would be minimal.

I was with my friend celebrating her birthday and we had a delightful lunch in a delightful restaurant. Our daughter had her wedding reception in the Brocket Hall Golf Club about 14 years ago and we have been back several times since.

I was given a voucher when I left my job and it was a great choice of gift. My husband and I had a lovely Sunday lunch, beautiful food, lovely setting and great value for money.

Have wanted to visit ADL for some time, and it really didnt disappoint. Really did have some of that old school quality and charm to it that some mod restaurants lack. Service was faultless, and every single thing we ate and drank was an absolute delight, from the initial taster bites with our prosecco, to the extremely intricate and full of flavour salads we had for starters. My wife's Sunday roast beef excellent and my Sea Bream divine. Could have quite happily eaten dessert twice, but rounding off with cheese and some truffles hit the spot. Even the homemade bread with Marmite butter (I'm on the fence with Marmite but it was a dream), was fab. We were helped with the weather being bright and sunny which definitely adds something, but I imagine a winter snug in would equally be as warm and charming. Top marks!

the only real hiccup was a bit of confusion over the portion size for children and the cost. But this was quickly sorted. One or two guests found the roast beef a little chewey. Emma and the team looked after us very well

A disappointing visit to celebrate A level results. Food very bland and not exciting for the price charged. Positioned at the back of the restaurant and felt other diners were all over the age of 60, felt a bit like visiting an old people’s home. Food very average

The location of Auberge is unbeatable, and the ambience of the place is lovely. The service was impeccable as always, and the staff very friendly. The food is the crowning glory, and was excellent, as was the wine (chose Amarone). A touch pricey, but wonderful for a special occasion.

A very enjoyable experience. Greeting on arrival was warm and friendly. The young lady who we assume was the maitre d’, was knowledgable on the food and drinks menus and was ably supported by the staff on the restaurant floor, who were all excellent. We very much look forward to our next visit in October.
