Nestled in the Hertfordshire countryside, about 20 minutes from London by train, lies Sopwell House. This iconic four-star Georgian building, once the former country home of Lord Mountbatten, is now home to a hotel, leisure complex and conference centre, the ideal place to escape from the pressures of city life. Whether you're looking for a spa, wedding venue or fine dining, you’re guaranteed to find it here.  

There are several dining options available on-site, catering to the needs of each and every visitor. Omboo is the most recent addition which is ‘inspired by the spice routes of Asis and the Far East’ and focuses on sharing platters. You won’t find any starters or mains here, as their simple cooking philosophy can be summed up in two words: ‘when ready.’ Menus are divided into nibbles, small bites, salads, sushi sashimi, farm, ocean, field, and dessert, with standout options including yellowtail carpaccio, ginger soy ribeye skewers, and a pulled duck salad. Dessert is also readily available, with mouthwatering strawberry jasmine bavarois and mango lime leaf parfait up for grabs. 

The Brasserie, meanwhile, is a relaxed, open-plan dining room soaked in natural light thanks to floor-to-ceiling windows. Guests can dine here from breakfast through to dinner, enjoying classic dishes such as grills, burgers, salads, pasta and more.

Only fancy staying for a drink? The Octagon Bar is a beautiful cocktail lounge boasting a marble-topped counter, leather bar stools and a vintage-inspired glass backdrop. Pull up a seat and gaze out over the picturesque lawns outside, or settle into one of its velvet armchairs for a relaxing evening with next-level drinks. Examples of signature cocktails include Ale, Ale & Honey featuring Dom benedictine, ginger ale and honey cordial, or the Orchard Apple which combines gin, apple cordial and apple soda.

Fancy staying longer? The site boasts 128 rooms and suits, which includes the Mews Suites, each of the 16 rooms individually designed. After tasting Omboo's dishes, you're guaranteed to be hungry for more.
