Dining at Centurion Club is a laid-back, elegant setting to enjoy seasonal British flavours. Diners can enjoy the relaxed ambience of the main restaurant, enjoy a drink from the bar out on the terrace, or book one of the three private areas for special occasions.

The Centurion Club menu showcases gourmet British flavours with fantastic attention to detail. Start with steak tartare with toasted sourdough, or the lasagne of Dorset crab with beurre Nantais and pea shoots, with a selection of fine wines available for perfect pairings. For mains, there are treats like breast of Landes chicken with herb gnocchi and baby vegetables, as well as the roast Cumbrian chateaubriand in Madeira sauce for two to share.

On Sundays, there are popular roast dinners at the Centurion Club in St Albans, while the dessert menu serves up a selection of French and British cheeses, as well as sweet options like white chocolate parfait with poached blood peach.

Centurion Club is a 6-minute drive from St Albans Abbey Rail Station.

    20 minutes after we were sat in the cocktail lounge someone finally took our drinks order. The waitress was lovely, but wasn't trained bar staff and nobody seemed to know how to make a martini, with confusion behind the bar between vermouth, a martini and the brand Martini. There were also no olives, which is a first world problem, but not really what you're expecting in a supposedly high end restaurant. This was all due apparently to the barman being off, which is understandable, but again you wouldn't expect somewhere claiming to be a fine dining experience to not have cover and if that is the case then don't treat your customers like idiots and think you can cover by getting inexperienced staff to make the cocktails from a book. The Dark and Stormy one of our party had looked like urine; the clue really is in the name. Food was mixed: the halibut was excellent, but the fillet was bleu (cold to the touch) rather than rare and a fairly poor cut. One of the desserts was ok, but the lemon and pistachio cake tasted of neither and the Tarte Tatin a complete mess, which is a pity because at a previous visit to the Galvin on Baker Street it was magic on a plate. The manager wasn't around to discuss this with, apparently due to an emergency, but again, how does a credible restaurant not have cover. The lady who took our coats had long since left when we came to leave, so we had to dig around for them ourselves. On the plus side the half of Peroni I had instead of the dry martini was ok.

    A major disappointment. This was my third visit to this restaurant. The previous two times were fine and encouraged us to go again. This Saturday evening visit by four of us was very bad. The approach was arrogant, food and drink were overpriced and service was desultory and in one case downright rude. This was when I complained about the long wait between courses and was informed by an unsmiling waitress that it was what I should expect, since the restaurant had a policy of leaving 20 minutes between each course. It would have helped to have been informed of this in advance. All our dishes were disappointing and even by nouvelle cuisine standards were very small. The pheasant was dry, sea bass average only. Beetroot risotto, offered as both starter or main, would have been fine as a starter but did not belong on the mains. The dessert souffle, supposed to be fruit-based, was drowned by having heavy and dark chocolate sauce poured into it. Carrot cake, which arrived in two large and heavy lumps, was also dry. We found it not surprising the restaurant, on a Saturday night and previously a popular venue, was only half-full.

    Lunch in a golf club restaurant ? Yes - I had the celeriac and truffle veloute followed by the venison. All nicely cooked and presented by friendly staff. We shared a half litre of the house cab sav. Lunch menu is excellent value.

    it was lovely, food was very good and service excellent in the restaurant. The bar waiter didnt seem to have a clue about finding me a glass of wine which was to my taste. also we had a call at 9.30 sunday morning to confirm the table time and when we arrived they said the table would be 10 mins which was fine, half an hour later i had to ask if the table was ready which it was and had been for about 15 minutes,
