Although we enjoyed our experience we felt the sandwich fillings could have been a bit more adventurous and made with more flavourful breads. Bit disappointed in the cakes too

A very pleasing atmosphere and experience with excellent afternoon tea. Nice touch by chef on Auntie's 93rd birthday celebration afternoon tea. Would not hesitate in recommending to others.

Having visited the West Lodge over many years IMO the standard of cooking is deteriorating with every visit and really needs to be addressed if customers are to return.

Our second visit reminded us why we like your restaurant. A round table for 6 in the corner means we are self centred and can enjoy the company and food without the intrusion of other diners. Service is unobtrusive but efficient and everyone enjoyed their food with good comments coming from round the table, very tasty soup, excellent venison, food envy for the soufflé. We enjoy this whole experience and we are all regular fine diners. Your food is acceptable but not the best we’ve had, this is reflected in the bill at £330 for 6 including a glass of wine each. But there is a pleasant relaxed atmosphere to your restaurant that will continue to bring us back. No one is demanding to know if we are enjoying our meal before we have taken a bite. We are left alone and that suits us.

Lovely location, venue and table. i had booked the table beforehand but on arrival we waited quite a while before being served. Seems the chef was unaware of the booking. A bit too near the till and kitchen area so aware of lots of ‘banter’ between staff who did not appear discreet or mindful of our presence. Made one feel the place was about them and not the customer. Disappointed by the cucumber sandwich as it was obviously not fresh as it was frozen and went limp on ‘defrost’. The rest of the food was however good. The waitress did ask how everything was and I mentioned the sandwich - showing her the limp cucumber. she said she’d mention it to the chef. I wouldn’t recommend this venue as an option for afternoon tea, I know of other places which offer better service, china cups, saucers and plates and who focus more on the afternoon tea experience which was what I was looking for as a present from me to my 88 year old mother for Christmas. Hope the comments help benefit the experience of future customers.

Our friends from San Francisco were very impressed with lunch yesterday. Everything was perfect, with those extra touches ie selection of luxury chocolates with our coffees making it a memorable occasion.

I always receive a friendly welcome upon returning, either to the bar for lunches or to the Mary Beale Restaurant and yesterday did not disappoint . Food & service excellent. Atmosphere very relaxing as just four tables were occupied and I knew the party on one of them!

We thoroughly enjoyed all our meals. The quality of the food and service was topnotch! We were made to feel very welcome and anything we wanted was no trouble at all. I was especially impressed by the quantity and quality of gluten free foods that is sadly lacking in most places, so congratulations on that impressive menu. We look forward to future visits when in London. Christina Hilliard.
