Food was of a good standard unfortunately I had to return a non alcoholic cocktail, the sparkling water that was used to make it was flat, the second drink that arrived was exactly the same as the first one it was also flat, obviously the same sparkling water was used from a bottle that had been used/ previously and had been sitting around for a while, manager was polite but obviously didn’t take any notice of what i had said, such a shame as it could so easily have been rectified if bar staff had opened a new bottle, really not worth getting a bad review to save a few pennies

Quite disappointing, I had pre-booked a table on the terrace for myself and friends but when we arrived all the tables under the purpose built new shelters were taken. The rain was on and off and very windy. We were temporarily seated on a table which served the through traffic for the waiters serving the other tables and the umbrella we had was removed due to the wind which meant when the sun came out we had no shelter from the hot sun. When we had been seated we were told that it was temporary and that we would be moved as soon as another table became available but this did not happen. The ambience of the terrace was lost and we were unable to enjoy our pricey food and drink. Service was mediocre ie missing cutlery, half filled cups of lattes which mostly consisted of froth. Very disappointing experience which was not worth the prices charged. I have been a visitor of West Lodge for many years and feel compelled to inform yourselves that the new permanent structures on the terrace have spoilt the look of the terrace and the seamless view of the beautiful surroundings has been lost.

Very disappointing service, definitely the staff needs some training as it is very reactive and didn't have a clue what was going on (orders delivered to the wrong tables) as probably did not communicate. A waiter with glasses had a very casual approach which was not expected for your restaurant. It was a treat for my husband birthday and I felt embarrassed as I booked it! The terrace has great potential but you need to work on the service and food too as to be honest our local café in Whetstone is far better.

We enjoyed a pleasant lunch despite the weather which varied from sunshine to rain to hail stones! The service was very good and we liked the food although felt that the menu was a bit restrictive for my wife who does not eat meat. It was also a surprise that chicken did not feature in any of your main courses

Food has definitely improved as we stopped going for breakfast as it was more of a miss than a hit. The grounds are lovely and the service is very good. Love the new gazebo with heaters for extra comfort.

Unfortunately it wasn't what we expected. I called 2 days ahead to ask for a birthday surprise on the day - absolutely nothing was prepared. We booked afternoon tea - but it wasn't offered - even though on the website you can book afternoon tea at whatever time you want. It was just a little disappointing. Service was great, friendly staff but not the birthday treat it was intended for.

Thank you so much for a wonderful birthday afternoon tea, despite the windy weather. The staff were brilliant, very welcoming, attentive and helpful. Your new terrace covers are excellent - just what we need for our inclement British weather and the heaters much appreciated. I look forward to my next visit on 15th May.

We had a lovely evening. The weather was quite chilly but the heaters took the edge off the cold. We would have stayed longer for an extra drink if the weather had been better. The grounds are stunning and the food was very fresh and home made. Thank you, we enjoyed our first evening out in months.

Neither the main course or dessert were particularly good. The steak I had was very chewy and my partner did not enjoy her salad. I have eaten better in pubs and paid half of what I paid in your restaurant.
