Description: 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?

Stayed for one night at this hotel. The dinner was lovely and the stall very attentive. Breakfast was good with the fried eggs being cook while you waited, nice table linin with proper napkins, would defiantly go again.

The food is exceedingly good - my husband asked for a 'blue' steak which he rarely receives cooked as it should be and he was once again over the moon with his choice. The service and atmosphere were fabulous and our anniversary was made special.

Congratulations on your wedding anniversary, and I am so glad we looked after you so well, Part of the success of our steaks is of course in the cooking and I am glad we got that spot on for your husband. The other part of the success is due to our sourcing only the very best beef from Sacombe Hill... More

Thank you for your kind review of the Mary Beale Restaurant at West Lodge Park, I am delighted you enjoyed your lunch and rebooked for dinner. A word about acoustics in restaurants, it seems to me that restaurant designers have forgotten about the noise that is created by three things - bare floor, bare windows without curtains, and bare tables...

Nothing to dislike! Service was impeccable, the food interesting and of a high quality. Elegantly presented and, above all, very tasty. We felt neither rushed nor neglected. A lovely dining experience.

it has been 4 years since we last had a meal here and I was not at all disappointed. The quality of the food remains impeccable and very balanced over the 3 courses I had. The staff were very pleasant and did not hurry us at all so we could make a evening of it.
