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?

We booked a table for 6 for Boxing Day so we didn't have to cook for once. Set menu but with a choice of several dishes for each course. It wasn't cheap, but a hotel never is, and at Christmas/Bank Holidays it will also be expensive. But a good time was had by all. The setting is quite nice, the... More

We have been trying to find a hotel and restaurant that can beat one we stayed at in Jersey and I think we've found it! We ate here for a wedding anniversary celebration and stayed at the hotel.

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.
