Description: The Conservatory Restaurant, at the delightful Boxmoor Lodge in Hemel...
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.

Service was good and friendly. Food was varied with plenty of choice, good mix of fish, steak, lamb and veggie options. Food was well presented and a good choice of wine from the cheap £14 bottles up to much higher quality wines.

There is no doubt: this is the best place in Hemel. Service is warm and effective while the food is amazing: great starter, home made bread and a very good meat. Ice cream above all. I've seen this place improve a lot and I am glad it is now constantly good. Highly recommended. M.

The restaurant looked beautiful with the colour co-ordinating Christmas decorations and table settings, when we went for our Christmas lunch. The service was friendly and the food good but not outstanding. The only problem was the acoustics. The restaurant was crowded and noisy and it was difficult to hear one another.

Lovely meal for my sisters 50th birthday, we enjoyed it Very much and the staff were excellent. I have a gluten intolerance and always take gluten free crackers for cheese. I was amazed that they had some and also offered me bread and a roll and were very knowledgable. We will go again.
