THOMPSON St Albans is an innovative, award-winning restaurant in the historic cathedral and market town of St Albans, offering three AA Rosette fine dining in a relaxed environment. The menus change regularly, dictated by the seasons; Phil Thompson combines his classic training, culinary style and flavour combinations with his own modern twist. 

The menus are designed to suit a variety of tastes whilst providing a challenge for adventurous diners. There is a comprehensive wine list featuring both Old and New World labels that are perfectly matched with the menus, and there's a great selection of cocktails, including non-alcoholic concoctions. Based in an impressive former blacksmith's workshop, THOMPSONS St Albans' boast three unique dining rooms and a courtyard for alfresco dining. The fare is unique and exciting, giving the diner a genuine opportunity to try something new.
