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.

“Good Food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 4, 2013

Evening meal was excellent. It was quite clear the food was fresh and cooked by the chef on the premises. The sauces with the starter and the main were well thought out and tasted divine. Even the bread for a side dish was home made. Breakfast was served in the same room, and certainly was up there with the best I have eaten.

“Fabulous food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 26, 2013

It was difficult to choose what to eat - there were so many exciting dishes on the menu to choose from. I settled on scallops and spiced lentils for a starter and ox cheek, which I had never eaten before, for my main course. The meal was delicious, cooked to perfection and beautifully presented. Service throughout the meal was excellent. We will definitely be back.

“Sunday Lunch at Boxmoor Lodge Hemel Hempstead”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 26, 2013

They specialise in Sunday Lunch at the Boxmoor Lodge. This is an upmarket Sunday Lunch, with the tables laid out beautifully with proper napkins. The menu has a good choice, with the meat particularly good, as the family have been well connected to the meat business for many many years. The manager is very friendly and nothing is too much trouble. We all enjoyed the meal

“Superb”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 11, 2013

Could not fault it and the heated outdoor area is inspired. The staff are very attentive without being over bearing, and the Chef should get a medal for my Fillet steak alone.
