About The Park Pub and Kitchen

Built in the 1900's, The Park pub & kitchen is just a stone's throw from Bedford Park on the outskirts of the town. Beautifully refurbished with its fireplaces, flagstones floors and beamed ceilings, the pub is stylish, cosy and comfortable.

With a traditional wrap-around bar, spacious restaurant and relaxed conservatory, The Park boasts a light and airy garden room which leads out to the urban garden (a fantastic place for dining in the summer with heaters provided for the other unpredictable months).

On our menus the emphasis is on local suppliers, the freshest ingredients and seasonal produce. We let the food do the talking, with our daily fish specials made from top quality fish straight from the market

We sat in one of the raised booths - not easy to get in and out of. Service was excellent and food was delivered in good time and was very tasty.It was really cold in the ladies toilets..even the hand drier blows cold air!!

Everytime we have been here for a meal, never been let down, food excellent, nice to see you have a high awareness of allergy issues, which is reflected in the menu. We will be back.

After making contact with various establishments, I chose to celebrate my wife’s 40th Birthday in the Garden Room at the Park Pub and I was not left disappointed From initial discussions with Gregg about my requirements I had a good feeling that my decision was the right one.. Communication from Gregg was first class from start to finish... When I visited the pub to check out the room and discuss decorations etc, I was looked after by Ramona who was brilliant.... She was even kind enough to Dec the room for me prior to our arrival on the day of the party which was such a massive help.... On the day the service was superb. The food came out in timely fashion and was delicious.... Thanks also to Nicola for her attentiveness during our afternoon.... I couldn’t have wished for a better place to celebrate this special day alongside friends and family... A memory that will last a lifetime... Thank you to all staff involved and especially Gregg and Ramona...... We shall definitely be going back to the Park for more excellent food and amazing service... David...

Our New Years meal (food) last night was as always excellent; however, the whole experience was let down by the poor service. It wasn’t even very busy to blame the slow and lack of personal attentiveness you expect. First time we have not left a tip. Would recommend for the food but definitely not the service.

we love coming here, but would have been useful to put on website you were not serving full menu on boxing day. previous year was a Sunday menu, so this year assumed full menu as per website. I had bubble and squeeze, which as nice as it was, 2 ready made potatoes cakes, 3 bacon slices and 2 eggs, cannot justify £13.00. Service great as always.

The service was excellent and we enjoyed our food. Only down side was that the heating was down and it was too cold for us. We will return.

The Christmas lunch was by some distance the best we have had in a restaurant. There was a very good variety of courses.All of them were very good the main turkey dinner and the Christmas in particular were totally delicious. The only criticism would be that service was rather overstretched on our arrival at 2.15 pm but then of course that was a peak period .Can not wait for next year

Had a lovely meal and we were really impressed with how we were looked after. Before the day of our booking I had several queries and all were dealt with as no problem at all. This was much appreciated.

The Park catered for 27 people for our work Christmas Lunch. This is the 10th year we have been and the feedback from the party was that it was the best year in terms of Food and Service. The food was served very quickly and efficiently. The bar staff were friendly and patient, despite being extremely busy.

I enjoyed our meal at The Park however we were placed in an empty corner with no other customers around, so didn't particularly enjoy the atmosphere and couldn't understand why we were seated there? It was a quiet Sunday evening however there were many more people seated in an alternate area, which I noticed when I went to the toilet. It would have been nice to seat other customers around us or to have offered to move us to the busier area

The house wine was very expensive. £8.20 per glass is more like London pub prices.

We booked for a large party (16) for Christmas lunch. The room was lovely, the food fabulous, but the poor waitresses (2) where rushed off their feet. Not only did they have our large party but the rest of the restaurant too. As a result the service was slow and drinks weren't very forthcoming. The waitresses looked miserable. I would suggest checking reservations and making sure you have enough staff on to cover the floor.

Wonderful food, as always. Well cooked, seasonal and delicious and I can't recommend that highly enough. Little shonky on service - I think the waitress was new - and a bit of a wait but all-in-all, very good. Btw, you definitely get what you pay for.
