I had dinner and breakfast here over a one night stay. The food was delicious and I had a choice of menus available to me. As far as cost was concerned I felt the food was very well priced and have paid much more for a less perfect meal elsewhere. I was sad to be only staying one night as... More

I took my cousin and aunt here for a cream tea to celebrate a birthday. The service was excellent as was the food. A really lovely way to spend a sunny afternoon. Will certainly be doing it again.

Myself and my husband came here as part of the hotel summer deal. We found the whole experience so pleasant. The food was simply perfect, the wine fab and the staff all without exception lovely and seem very happy to be working there. Loved the pianist too. Highly recommended and we will be back very very soon.

I visited with my elderly cousin, who moves very slowly, but the staff were gracious and patient. The hotel was not known to me, but what a find! Gorgeous grounds, beautiful building, lovley works of art. Service was attentive but not fussy, timings were prompt, food (lunch) excellent and didn't leave you feeling over-fed, An unforgettable occasion.

pleasant surroundings with warm welcoming staff, I would recommend the lunch experience in this restaurant. I also noted many happy diners of all ages there seemed to be those like myself with a business colleague or groups of friends and families enjoying the dining experience.

A very good friend invited us to dinner here: I admit that I had pre-conceived ideas about dining in hotels, apart from in the West End. I was most pleasantly surprised. From the greeting as we stepped in to the Hotel entrance the staff were attentive and professional. It was encouraging to see such a wide age range amongst the... More

Really lovely setting. We were lucky with the weather so sat outside. Service is spot on & food delicious. Plenty of parking. Very traditional and even a bit old fashioned but clean, friendly & courteous service.

Description
Tucked away inside the West Lodge Park Hotel, the Mary Beale Restaurant and Bar provides an elegant but unpretentious setting for any occasion. Enviably located close to Trent Park and Hadley Wood, the dining room is a traditionally stylish space with huge windows letting in plenty of natural light. Executive Chef Wayne Turner and his team use locally sourced produce to create seasonal British dishes and a selection of snacks and light options which are served in the bar. We recommend the organic salmon with dill risotto and the Sacombe Hill Farm beef fillet with mushroom gratin. Why not treat the family to the Mary Beale Restaurant's legendary Sunday lunch, or sample a glass or two from their excellent wine list?
