The Mary Beale Restaurant is named after the stunning art work by Britain's first professional woman painter. Many of her original works adorn the walls.
Our Executive Chef Wayne Turner and his team together with the restaurant brigade can now offer you a memorable dining experience with gastronomic delights on the menu and for those with smaller appetites delicious light meals or snacks can be served in the bar.
Afternoon Tea available Mon - Sat 15:00 - 18:00 & Sun 15:30 - 18:00
A wonderful dining experience made possible by a very friendly and efficient staff.
Excellent, proactive, friendly and prompt customer service.
Lovely time had by all. Waiting staff could not have been more helpful or more accomodating of our many dietary requests. Cant wait to come another time. Thank you
Quite poor reception to restaurant: slow to greet, bar tables not cleared for pre-dinner drinks. Having checked in fir a pre-dinner drink we had to find someone to tske us to our table instead of being invited. Once we sat down service was excellent.
Excellent evening all round Will be back soon
Very nice a lovely Christmasy treat
I have marked you down on food because the dishes could have been hotter. My meal was just warm and one lady sent hers back to be reheated. Other than that it was excellent. We all loved your pianist and your staff are delightful. We look forward to coming again next year. Pamela Taylor
My husband and I love going to Mary Beale Restaurant. The atmosphere restaurant is wonderful; the food is of excellent quality; lovely presentation of the dishes, and the service, as always, very attentive and kind.
Personally I would rate everything as 10 stars The normal excellent service, atmosphere and food was surpassed
DO NOT GO ANYWHERE ELSE FOR AFTERNOON TEA.SIMPLY THE BEST.
We meet here with friends once a month and we are never disappointed. The staff are fantastic and the food is always of a high quality. Very yummy!
It's a delightful restaurant. However, due to the nature of the room it did get quite noisy. With my poor heang that made conversation difficult. I would still go back
We had a really lovely evening, the meal was delicious and beautifully presented. Thank you to Matthew and Chris who looked after us so well.
We really enjoyed our visit for Sunday lunch. Our starters were slightly disappointing but the mains were very good. When seated at 12.30 we found the piano music a little too loud. This was less noticeable once the restaurant filled up. Our waitress was extremely attentive. We would definitely return!
Excellent, polite friendly service in a beautiful setting.
We were a party of 11 having lunch at the restaurant for a very special occasion. We were greeted very well, the service was brilliant and the food fantastic. Excellent staff and Mathew looked after us very well. My guests and I were very happy. I would definitely recommend. Thanks a lot to the team. :-)
I had a wonderful lunch with my cousin today.The staff were courteous and met all our needs with a smile. Each course was delicious and we both enjoyed the food immensly. The whole atmosphere and setting at West Lodge made it a very special afternoon. We cannot wait to do it all again,, thank you so much!
Good menu choices , service attentive and friendly but not intrusive. Would certainly recommend
Lovely evening, delicious food and reasonably priced for a nice meal. Waiter and staff were very attentive and friendly.
Great evening with friends, made even better by the quality of the service and the food. Jo & Matthew our waiters were excellent and very accommodating. Matthew singing Happy Birthday to my wife accompanied by Paul on the piano was a lovely touch. Thank you to all the staff for a lovely evening.
The Bream was absolutely delicious - best ever.
Service was good but all else was mediocre for the price of their afternoon tea.
We had a most enjoyable evening. The food and surroundings were well up to the usual high standard. I had the venison and it was superb, the most tender and flavoursome that I have ever had. Service was a little slow, but it was Saturday evening. There are far worse places to have to spend time and the staff were apologetic. Colin W
I was disappointed with our afternoon tea at the West Lodge. Staff had a disagreement which was apparent to everyone in the vicinity. It stemmed from a staff member believing another staff member had deliberately ‘spiked’ a check. We could hear the whole conversation and it was a little unprofessional. The macaroons were dry and close to stale. We only got one quiche between 2 of us. There was no replacement sandwiches when we asked for no salmon. Overall, hugely disappointing.
jack our waiter very pleasant helpfull
