Good service, food excellent, relaxing atmosphere. I had the soup and sea bass, which was beautifully presented. I was tempted by dessert but the main course was ample.

I used to eat quite often here with a small group of girlfriends but two rather poor experiences earlier in the year meant that it was only quite recently we decided to give it another go. Fortunately this time it was slightly better. The clientele is clearly on the elderly side. So the quiet hushed tones and lack of buzz... More

We visited as part of a group and were not disappointed. Afternoon tea was scrumptious preceded by a talk and walk round the Arboretum. This is a hotel of character - service was pleasant and efficient, the items on offer excellent and we found it a relaxing and interesting place to visit. The Arboretum is especially spectacular in autumn.

I visit the Mary Beale Restaurant at least once a month to catch up with family and friends, and visited there yesterday to enjoy an early festive dinner. My guest enjoyed the Barbary Duck starter, followed by the Blixes Farm Lamb, whilst I had the Scottish smoked salmon galette followed by the Turkey ballotine. All the dishes were excellent as...

Four of us for Sunday lunch. Booked for the last slot of the day (2pm) but never felt pressurised to hurry even though we were one of the last to leave.

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?
