Reviewed 11 December 2018

The ambience was lovely as were the staff. But for the price paid it was most disappointing to find the turkey was just a slice off a stuffed turkey roll. In fact there was very little turkey.More

An old fashioned Restaurant but a nice atmosphere. The menu was limited, the food was ok, perhaps a bit expensive for what it was. Was made better by a nice evening allowing the doors and windows to be open. The piano player added another element.More

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?
