The staff are extremely welcoming and helpful. They go out of their way to make the meal special. There is an extensive menu that caters for all tastes. The food is beautifully prepared and served.

Late warm Sunday afternoon/ early evening so we thought it would be nice to sit out in the grounds of the West Lodge Hotel (Barnet), relaxed with a glass of pimms. Only 3 of us. The waiter advised it would be better for us to order a jug rather than 3 glasses. So, we followed the advice. We then found... More

You are not going to come back, and so I doubt there is anything that I can say or do to convince... More

Just back from a celebratory tea with a group of elderly. We were 12 in number and seated in a small enclave just off the main part of the Mary Beale restaurant which overlooks the extensive grounds.

Thank you for a wonderful evening. The food was delicious and we all had a lovely evening celebrating a special birthday. Ten of us kept the pianist occupied for the whole evening.

My husband and I got a great deal for dinner, bed and breakfast. The food is fabulous, the service is fantastic. There is nothing we could fault about this restaurant. It is so relaxing here, there is no pressure to leave your table. Would highly recommend the Mary Beale restaurant. Will definitely be coming back soon.

There is a certain charm about West Lodge Park Hotel. I go there frequently. The staff are delightful and always welcoming. The wines tend to be on the expensive side. I would suggest visitors sign up for the Club discount card. It is worth doing.

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?
