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

First visit for many years, impressed with refurbishment. Service and atmosphere was good considering it was a Saturday night. Presentation, quality and menu choice good but a little overpriced. A pleasant evening out with family. Will probably return.

After being seated at the table, I ordered bread to start with while considering the menu. We waited a very,very long time and were being totally ignored.I felt embarrassed because even my guests commented on the delay. I had to physically grab hold of a waitress to remind her that we were waiting. Her excuse was that they had a large function going on and were busy. HAVE NOT HEARD OF SUCH A RIDICULOUS EXCUSE BEFORE. If a place cannot cope, then don’t take on bookings.

We were a table of 5 and all thoroughly enjoyed both food and wine. We did have an issue with one meal but it was dealt with very satisfactorily. Very good professional staff both in bar and service.

Friendly, polite and efficient staff. Good choice of food and drink in pleasant surroundings. Quality and quantity of food was excellent. Although we did not use it the revamped garden area looks very inviting .

We had a nice time, service was a little slow but it was a Sunday. Cauliflower cheese side dish appeared microwaved and cooked within an inch of its life. Staff were friendly and a the roast and gravy was excellent though.

Thank you for the wonderful service we received on Saturday for my husband's 50th Birthday in the Garden Room. Our waitress was very attentive (sorry, I didn't get her name) and we felt very special! We had a lovely time. Thanks

The service was poor as the restaurant was significantly understaffed. The table was booked for 7.15 but we were unable to sit down until 7.45. We then had to wait until 8.20 for our starter and we were unable to catch the attention of the waitress in order to ask for cutlery, drinks, vinegar etc. We waited 20 minutes for the bill to arrive and then we had to go to the till to pay. It wasnt the fault of the waitress it was simply that the place was packed and there were too many tables for the amount of staff trying to serve them. The food was good and the new refurb is lovely. I think it would be a better experience mid week when it is quieter.

We had a good time. Everyone was friendly but service is very slow. Sea bass and duck lovely but hallomi salad not inspiring. We will return as the location is lovely.

Very impressed with the make over inside & out. The portion size of the starters has increased. All of us enjoyed the meal on the whole but feel the menu could do with a make over too. Wonderful attentive service thoughout our visit. Will be back in future

Nicely redecorated and refurbished. A good simple menu well presented. I have been coming here since the early 80s and I think this is the nicest change in atmosphere of the many.

Although the food and drink was good all service took far to long. Even getting seated took time. And our wine came after we finished eating. You are understaffed and it is not nice to have to fight for attention. It’s stressful and I want to relax when I go for a meal.

I found the service pleasant but on the slow side. Portions were smaller than usual for the main but puddings were very nice (although they should give more custard!) Overall, I wouldn't say the meal was good value - I probably would only return and order off a set menu.
