Description: The Conservatory Restaurant, at the delightful Boxmoor Lodge in Hemel Hempstead, is a friendly, family owned business with an exceptional modern British menu. The light-filled dining room has crisp linens, garden views and fresh flowers, and the service is faultless. The Head Chef at Boxmoor Lodge, Stuart Ambury, oversees a kitchen that prides itself on high-quality GM free ingredients and creative presentation. Starters such as a fine Crisp tempura tiger prawns, mango & mint salad with ponzu dipping sauce or Baked fresh figs with Cumbrian dry aged ham, celeriac remoulade and port syrup are bound to tempt you. 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. Then there is also the local Aylesbury duckling from Mr Waller, using the breast which is roasted perfectly pink with a crispy skin, crisp leg croquette with a rich orange & honey sauce. The restaurant also has a wonderful wine list and a superb outside dining area for the alfresco experience.

We had a very enjoyable three-course Sunday lunch for three couples. The food was very good and the service was efficient and friendly. We shall certainly go again.

My title says it all. excellent, friendly professional service from start to finish. Having stayed in several 'chain' hotels this year on business where you are just a number, I chose Boxmoor Lodge principally from their website and reviews on here. With family along for the journey, it looked the perfect place and we were not disappointed. We had an... More

We got married at the Boxmoor Lodge in September 2014 and it was just perfect. We chose this as the venue primarily due to the fact that they were flexible and understanding of our requirements, provide great food and first class service! We had our Ceremony in the Conservatory followed by a 3-course reception for 85 in the Marquee. So... More

Over the years we have been to this restaurant a number of times but this most recent meal was one of the best we have had. There were 3 of us & we all had the smoked haddock, shrimp & hen's egg starter which was absolutely delicious. We all had different main courses which were all good. None of us... More

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
