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���s legendary Sunday lunch, or sample a glass or two from their excellent wine list?

First of all let me say that the food was absolutely wonderful. It took a while to be served but it was all freshly cooked and very well worth the wait. We had booked a lunch menu via their website at a "special rate" but when the menu was given to us it was for the full daily rate. I... More

On arrival we were shown to a table other than the one that we had specifically reserved when booking weeks in advance. We were unable to order additional baskets of bread after staff informed us that they were limiting the bread to one basket per table as they had run out. The main courses were nothing short of appalling. One... More

I am sorry that you didn't enjoy your Sunday lunch at West Lodge Park. It is true that some things were not as good as they could have been. You had a window table reserved, and this is what we offered you, we can't always promise an exact table as that has to be in the discretion of our restaurant... More

We went with the family for an all inclusive Boxing Day lunch. Three courses with plenty of choice for everyone ( wine extra.) The food was fresh tasty and well presented.

Attended a Christmas Gala here on 19th Dec. The grounds are pretty. It was a shame the weather was wet and dark that evening so cannot venture outside/grounds. It is a reasonable 15 minutes driving distance from Palmers Green. Parking is plentiful. This is the right place to get inspiration re festive season. It is truly British. Decor are also... More

Thank you for your review of the Mary Beale Restaurant at Sunday lunch. I must confess to being most surprised at the negative tone of this review.

When booking I specifically pointed out that 1 guest was vegetarian. There was only one vegetarian main course from fourteen on the menu so our choice for our vegetarian guest was take it or leave it. The waiter confirmed that there was nothing else available. To charge over £5 for a bottle of beer is extortion.

We are sorry that there was a communication issue with your booking. As a result of your review, we have added alternative vegetarian dishes to our restaurant menu, and all staff have been briefed to offer further choices from our Food and Drink bar menu if vegetarian guests prefer. Do give us another chance, we are sorry we got it... More

Had another fantastic Sunday lunch at the West Lodge. The staff and food brilliant as ever, always ensuring we are comfortable and well cared for. Looking forward to a return visit next week. I also must advise anyone in the area to visit for high tea. Another excellent serving. Thank you for the extra pot of veg.
