And the main course selection includes some mouth watering treats like the roasted rack of lamb,beautifully presented with pea puree, fresh peas & lamb essence, the lamb is cooked just right, very succulent and seasoned well.

The dinner choices on the menu were varied and the standard of the food was very good. The waiter was very polite and friendly, and attentive without being obsequious.

We went to the Boxmoor Lodge for dinner on a Saturday night and had a great time. The staff saw to our every need and the food was delicious. There was a large group there at the same time as our little dinner for two, so you may want to ask if there will be a large party there during... More

The head waitress was very good, the remainder of staff very amateurish, and not very efficient. Some aspects of the food very poor, very few prawns and sauce in the Prawn Cocktail, some of the meat in the main coarse was cut very thick, looking very unappetising, very little gravy on each plate. The apple pie was luke warm with... More

Found this place from the internet, had good reviews so thought we would give it a try. We went along for Sunday lunch with the family and had a very nice meal. We had the traditional Sunday Roast which I would thoroughly recommend. Waitress service was very tentative but we did think they could have dressed a little smarter. Other... More

We booked to dine in the marquee on Valentine's Night. Yes - a marquee on the night of a bad storm! However the wind hadn't really got up when we arrived. The marquee looked great, they had really made an effort and the staff were very friendly - giving us two free drinks on arrival, instead of one! We had... More

We regularly pass the Boxmoor Lodge. Local reviews were very positive, so when their recent Valentine's Day promotion coincided with our wedding anniversary, we decide to give it a go. A very friendly and efficient welcome on arrival. Unfortunately our romantic dinner for two was not to be as a large party of 25 plus completely dominated the restaurant -... More

I used Trip Advisor to find a restaurant half way between my parents and us so we could have a get together. Boxmoor Lodge had some good reviews so we decided to try it for Sunday lunch. On arrival we were met by friendly people who took our coats, we ordered a drink at the bar and then sat down... More

Once again we booked the Restaurant for our Christmas lunch with 19 ladies from our keep fit class and we were not disappointed. The food was hot, plentiful and well presented. The sweets were to die for, with coffee and mints to follow. Well done to the chef and staff for a very enjoyable experience.
