We came for breakfast and were very very disappointed. The milk container for cereals was empty, the poached eggs had clearly been sitting for some time; the pastries were almost finished, we had to clear our own dishes to make room and had to ask for more coffee and milk. It took the meaning of “self service” to another level. If breakfast is served up to 10.30 then there should have been a more fuller display and empty baskets and containers refilled. We were not residents and were more or less ignored. At 10.15 we were virtually the only people there and although a member of staff did come and say that we could stay as long as we liked, the food was almost cleared away and the staff were totally occupied in resetting the restaurant. We have had some wonderful dinners and lunches at the Mary Beale Restaurant so that made this occasion even more disappointing

Staff were very welcoming. The food service was a little slow but we had a very pleasant afternoon and especially enjoyed the tour of the arboretum.

The afternoon tea was very good and very well presented, but with a fussy husband there wasn't a lot that he liked, much prefers ham! The grounds were beautiful and we thoroughly enjoyed the walk after our tea as we both felt very full and needed the exercise! The waiters were very helpful and very pleasant.

Have been coming here for a few years but the service is getting slower each time. Had to wait an hour before our order was taken. Afternoon tea took 3 hours!

A very nice experience, service excellent. Would have been better if the piano playing had been quieter.

Food was much better this time however i was still shocked at how slow the service was initially. Over half an hour to receive hot drinks. However after this the service was much better. Our waiter was v personable, as he was before.

Booking farce - was told I couldn't have 1pm, it had to be 1.15pm. Also when altering numbers from 2 to 3, was told it might be difficult to find another chair because you were fully booked! As a regular attender on Saturdays I knew this was rubbish. It often happens - why? Apart from that we found the lunch was good.

I was a little disappointed that the first bill you offered was wrong and too high as it included items not consumed by those at our table. However, this was soon put right.

Miklos, I just wanted to say thank you to you and your team for making my 60th birthday lunch such a success today. The lovely gardens and weather, the section of the restaurant you gave us and the live piano music all contributed, but what made the event truly memorable was the quality of the food and service. Everybody in our party of 13 complimented the food. I would also like to say thank you to Andrew who looked after our large party with friendly professionalism and efficiency. I would be grateful if you could pass these comments on to the chef and Andrew. The event could not have gone better. Thank you.

We're a group of 6 'pensioner' old school friends! We meet up for lunch every few months around Herts, Beds and Bucks and when it's my turn to book something locally, we know we can rely on West Lodge Park because of the good service and excellent food, albeit a little pricey sometimes! Our Beale cards come in handy for coffee and petits fours!
