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?

My wife and I enjoyed a sumptuous English Afternoon Tea in the Terrace Bar of this gem of a country hotel, (only a few hundred metres from Cockfosters Piccadilly Line Tube Station!). At present your afternoon tea, which you should book in advance, will cost £18.50 per head, and consists of Devonshire clotted cream and Tiptree jam with warm scones,... More

What a shame. Had our wedding reception here 10 years ago and have been to several functions since and taken advantage of the great value Groupon offer several times. So this was our first choice for a small birthday celebration. When making our reservation I advised them of severe food allergies of one of the party. On arrival, I mentioned... More

We had a small family celebration at West Lodge Park. We were really well looked after. The service was excellent and the staff were more than happy to let us linger at the table after the meal. Food was a lot better than I'd expected based on other reviews, and believe me, I'm picky! I'd certainly fully recommend it.

Good old English "silver" service. Professional but not uptight and/or off putting. Lovely food to a very high standard, drink and company. Fabulous terrace bar/patio especially in this recent heat wave.

I can't find fault with any food - it was all very enjoyable. Some we ate in the garden and some in the restaurant. Formal or informal it doesn't make any difference. We couldn't have asked for anything any better. Thank you so much.
