Description: Tucked away inside the West Lodge Park Hotel, the Mary Beale Restaurant...
Tucked away inside the West Lodge Park Hotel, the Mary Beale Restaurant and Bar provides an elegant but unpretentious setting for any occasion. Enviably located close to Trent Park and Hadley Wood, the dining room is a traditionally stylish space with huge windows letting in plenty of natural light. Executive Chef Wayne Turner and his team use locally sourced produce to create seasonal British dishes and a selection of snacks and light options which are served in the bar. We recommend the organic salmon with dill risotto and the Sacombe Hill Farm beef fillet with mushroom gratin. Why not treat the family to the Mary Beale Restaurant's legendary Sunday lunch, or sample a glass or two from their excellent wine list?

Went here with my partner as part of a voucher that I got for Christmas. The meal was fantastic. We had three courses with some lovely red wine. Venison was excellent and the soufflé was especially good! We were also allowed as much time as we wanted to finish up and didn't feel rushed into leaving which is a rarity... More

Thank you for your kind review of the Mary Beale Restaurant, I am so pleased that you enjoyed the food and the service. I am particularly pleased that you didn't feel rushed, it is so common in London restaurants these days to be allocated a time slot of between 90 minutes and two hours, which spoils the evening.

Had a wonderful evening here at the West Lodge Mary Beale Restaurant. I felt that the customer was important.

We stayed at the Hotel as part of a visit to family and a university tour for our son. We decided to book afternoon tea for 12 after enjoying a previous experience and we were not disappointed.

We go to the once a month or every other month to catch up with family. I haven't been since before Christmas, and went with my 3 year old daughter and mum.

Thank you for your comments about the lack of child friendly menus at West Lodge Park. I think you are being quite unfair as we are able to cook more simply any dish that is on the menu. We have lots of child friendly dishes such as beefburgers, chicken burgers, sausage and mash, omelettes, club sandwiches, potato wedges, chips, cheese... More

I met up with a friend for afternoon tea yesterday and it was excellent. Our waiter, Peter, was professional, attentive and friendly at the same time.

Thank you for your kind review of West Lodge Park afternoon tea, It is not often we are compared favourably with the Ritz, so will happily accept the compliment. I actually think the Ritz is a bit of a rip off, as afternoon tea has become almost an industrial product, given that bookings for tea start at 11.30 in the... More
