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?

The two of us went for a quiet lunch to celebrate our Anniversary and hoped it would go well. We needn't have worried.

We were looked after very well. Whilst the food was not of the highest class it was very acceptable and original, served immaculately with style and imagination. The staff gave detailed and personal attention to each diner. A delightful evening.

I was invited to this restaurant - amid the beautiful setting of the hotel and its grounds - with my girlfriend's family to celebrate a few family birthdays. It was a party of 12, with two wheelchairs. So I appreciate that isn't necessarily 'easy'. However.. Upon arrival, we were greeted nicely and everyone was very lovely.
