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.

I'm vegetarian and sadly this means that meals out tend to be unimaginative and dull. But this meal was superb from beginning to end: imaginative food with wonderful flavours, beautifully served.

We meet here for breakfast every few weeks. Nicely presented tables in a nice building , welcoming to non-residents, good straightforward full-english plus a small buffet for cereals and fruit.

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.

With family along for the journey, it looked the perfect place and we were not disappointed. We had an... More

We had our Ceremony in the Conservatory followed by a 3-course reception for 85 in the Marquee. So... More

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.
