Squires Restaurant at Bedford Lodge Hotel has undergone a stunning refurbishment and menu overhaul. The walls are adorned with carefully selected pieces of art mostly conducive of still life which bring the artistic decor into being. The vibrant colour scheme of rich raspberry and subtle lime combined with the amazing food, make for a charismatic ambience, especially during the evening when the lights are dimmed and the lanterns are glowing. This intimate restaurant is perfectly suited for long, leisurely chats over a bottle of choice Sauvignon or other pickings from the vineyards of France, Italy and the New World. The expertly selected wine list is enhanced by the eclectic menus and delectable selection of dishes. Whether it’s business or pleasure, a light lunch with friends or romantic dinner for two, Squires Restaurant is a recipe for success. Staff who aim to please, chefs who deliver and management who know how to manage... the ‘proof is in the pudding’, as they say.

Me and my Fiancé had a spa break here (again) for our engagement anniversary which included a meal here. I was a little let down as there was only 1 vegetarian option on the menu, but it was superb so no troubles there. All the staff were very polite and helpful. We mentioned to a member of staff that it... More

This was my second visit with two school friends for coffee and lunch, so obviously we enjoyed the first one! I have also attended a conference for work here. Lovely building and gardens, although today the weather meant we stayed indoors. Friendly and helpful staff in the bar and the restaurant, and very good food from the fixed price lunch... More

The dining menu looked very appealing and with fresh ideas and beautifully presented.

We enjoyed the fixed price menu as part of a package booked direct with the hotel, and the food was superb.

Overall very happy with the evening meal and breakfast we had. For starter I had lamb, lentils and apricot, the lamb was out of this world, I didn't really see what the lentils and apricot brought to the dish but it was a nice starter, my girlfriend had a deconstructed goats cheese tart which she enjoyed. For main fillet steak... More

It's simply an excellent restaurant, the best steak I have eaten all year. The service is brilliant and not too intrusive. Definitely worth booking a table even if you aren't staying in the hotel.

My boyfriend arranged for us to dine here for a special occasion. Whilst he wasn't able to 'book' a table, we were able to get in. Although, this meant that he wasn't able to arrange for flowers or extra flourishments to the table for our arrival but there was Christmas crackers on the table next to ours. (hmm?) The service...
