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

Great food and service! However, I came in the day before to pre order the food so it could be brought about to the table soon after we arrived (this was due to having an hour lunch break and needed to be back in work within a tight time limit). The food was brought out 30 minutes after our arrival, meaning we had to eat very quickly and wasn’t as relaxed as we had hoped for. Overall though, a lovely pub/restaurant and would return again.

Went for Sunday lunch and service was very slow. We had to wait over half an hour for our table reservation at 1.30 pm, and were told there were no tables free - although this was clearly not the case. When we finally sat down we asked four times for a glass of Prosecco that never came, but when we mentioned this another waitress very kindly brought us the whole bottle to apologise. The roast dinners were very average, but there were some highlights such as the sweet potato fries.

Very slow service coming out from the kitchen though waiter was excellent. Fish finger sandwich greasy and the french onion soup has changed - it has finally gone vegetarian but now has no melted cheese on top and quantity reduced by 1/4.

Not up to your usual standard. Drinks order not correct, Order for soup wrong so held up the first course, then nearly had bowl of soup in our laps girl was trying to carry to much in one go. Description of starters misleading onion and stilton flan, piece of puff pastry slice of onion and stilton balls is not a flan. Some of the main portions were very small. Treacle flan, somebody needs to know how to make pastry that isnt rock hard. Waitress didnt seem to know new menu so no help there. All in all a very disappointing meal.

Lovely meal celebrating a silver wedding anniversary with family. Our waitress Rosie was lovely and made our evening extra special. Excellent food compliments to the chefs. Definitely be back.

Starter was nice. Main course was fabulous. Dessert was vey disappointing not nice. Coffee was cold. Atmosphere was difficult as there was a wedding. Very noisy if I had known probably wouldn't have booked for that evening.

We had a mid-week lunch and the restaurant was very quiet. The menu was interesting but a bit limited, especially the main courses. Some of the food was not as good as previous visits - the blue cheese balls on the shallot tart (why?), the batter on the fish was greasy and the run babas were dry. However, the mushroom risotto was very tasty and the beef cheek very tender.

We have our large group monthly breakfast get-together at The Park, and we love it! The team look after us so well, very friendly and helpful, and the food is delicious. A perfect place for a big group event- we all rate it very highly.

Our Sunday Lunch was the best we have had at the park in some time. However the veg has not changed in 2 years - it is always carrots, cabbage and parsnips. Please use a bit of imagination, there are lots of veg out there.

The food was very well cooked just felt it was perhaps a £1 or 2 over priced and as it was early the bar staff were doing a lot of set up still and not necessarily customer attentive.

A warm and welcoming atmosphere on arrival with friendly and attentive staff. The menu was imaginative and the quality and tasty food was well served and presented. A delay in serving the deserts was apologised for before we had a chance to raise the matter and, in compensation, the deserts (delicious!)were not charged for on the final bill - a very nice and unexpected gesture.

Visited with friends yesterday lunch time. Very busy and service was very slow. Busy shouldn’t be an excuse for slow service. Most of our party enjoyed their chosen food. It was fine but not particularly outstanding was the consensus of opinion.

Great breakfast get together, with over 20 hungry runners, well managed by the friendly Park team. We've come back to the Park for the great atmosphere and lovely surroundings. Highly recommended by all in our group.

The food was immaculate, the atmosphere was dire as was the service. We sat at our table without a drink for twenty minutes, when we finally got a chance to order a drink (after calling the waiter over) it came at the same time as our food. We got the bill before they even took our plates away. Will not be visiting again

I loved the Comedy Night. It was great fun and well run. What spoilt it was the very poor food. I have eaten many times at the Park and it has always been excellent. The rice was dry, and I could not make out what the curry was as it was tasteless. Presentation was not good, shredded chicken and I think vegetables. It looked and tasted not very good. I would have paid more to have got a better meal.
