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 improving a lot and I am glad it is now constantly good. Highly recommended. M.

We visited Friday for my mothers birthday, the restaurant was quiet, three tables in total -10 covers! On the whole service was good. The quantity of food per portion varied, some dished were massive (prawns/ croquettes) and some dainty haute cuisine like (beetroot/ chicken).

This restaurant is in the Boxmoor Lodge hotel, which describes it as "traditional". I agree; it is good British cuisine, well prepared and presented. The staff are friendly and reasonably efficient. You won't find a gastronomic adventure here, but you are unlikely to leave hungry.

Took Mum and Dad here for there 65th Wedding Anniversary for Sunday dinner. The food was delicious and the service was great. Unfortunately there was a party celebrating a 60th birthday who absolutely ruined the atmosphere, trying to take over the restaurant, the level of noise they made you would think you were at a kids party. Also one of... More

Went for Sunday lunch with family for birthday celebration. We could not fault the food or the service and the lovely surroundings. The grandchildren ate all their food ( which is unusual) which for children's portions were very generous. 12 year old granddaughter only wanted chicken which was not on the menu but the chef cooked a chicken breast specially...

Was looking forward to a celebration for my sons birthday but was telephoned in the preceding week to say my reservation was cancelled due to staff shortage and a wedding ! Obviously hadn't heard of agency staff! Never had this happen before ,would not ever bother with this restaurant again!

Went for a quiet meal and was not disappointed. Lovely place, with good atmosphere. Food was very good as was the service. Staff very polite and attentive but not over the top. A very nice experience. Will be back

Took family visiting from abroad for Sunday lunch to the place we had our wedding reception and we could not have chosen a better place. The meat was just fantastic, a lovely piece of beef with lovely accompliments. Will definately visit for Sunday lunch again in the near future. Lovely staff and very attentive.

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.
