I went for afternoon tea with a group of friends to celibate an 80th birthday. Everything was lovely. The service was very attentive without feeling hurried in any way. There was a good selection of teas to go with the tasty sandwiches and delightful cakes. I would go back again and again.

There were seven of us for lunch to celebrate a Golden Wedding anniversary. The food and wine was excellent, the service was attentive and there was great attention to detail. There was a problem with our first bottle of wine (which happens) and the waiter dealt with it perfectly. There is a two-course set lunch for £20 and three courses... More

Myself and friends went for afternoon tea at the west lodge. It's a bit dated but a beautiful hotel and grounds. The finger sandwiches cakes and scones were delicious. My tea was a bit weak but think that was my ordering! They did bring another type straight away. Would definitely go back.

It is so nice to be able to get good, simple, well cooked food. The sirloin steak was tender, full of flavour and cooked to perfection and accompanied by new potatoes, mushroom, tomatoe and spinach. The desert of strawberries and two flavours of pannacotta was gorgeous and irresistable even though bad for my waistline.

Myself and my husband came here as part of the hotel summer deal. We found the whole experience so pleasant.

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?
