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

Given that Covid restrictions were in place every thing was handled in a very friendly and professional way. The food was very good and seemingly cooked to order and the service was both pleasant and efficient.

First trip out since lockdown eased and pubs re-opened and shielding finished to celebrate our 10th Anniversary. Felt safe and socially distanced, and had a lovely time. Thank you, we will be back!

First visit since lockdown. Sat in the lovely garden room with the doors open onto the garden. Had a lovely leisurely lunch, good food, attentive, friendly staff. It wasn’t at all crowded so was easily able to follow the social distancing Rules. Felt safe. Well done The Park.

Absolutely terrible experience. Booked for 8 and arrived in time - were told there would be an extra long wait for food and given a table number but not shown to a table. When we managed to find the table it was occupied, with the occupants showing no sign of leaving. After waiting feeling like idiots for a while, I managed to find a staff member who gave us a different table number which we were again left to find for ourselves. After sitting at this second table for around 20 minutes waiting for a menu, we had to give up and leave. An evening ruined, wouldn't recommend to anyone. People crammed in to the pub to the rafters - someone clearly putting profit before people's experience and their health.

First day of the Governments Meal Deal at Tue Park, it was a fantastic evening, the restaurant was buzzing with people and we loved our waitress Angelina, she was a wonderful host. The food was amazing.

Enjoyed our meal but obviously they were very busy and it showed with the service which was polite and friendly but probably not as smooth as they would be under normal circumstances. I'm not sure on the exact rules but would have expected tables in the garden to be wiped down after every customer which they were not.

The pub was.well organised and we were greeted with smiles from all the staff on arrival. The only downside of the visit was the length of time from ordering our 2 drinks to them arriving and how long we had to wait to order our food. Would go back again though.

Visited just after lockdown reopening. Staff were lovely and working hard to ensure everyone felt welcome. We were surprised no face coverings or visors for staff after visiting a few other places recently but there are a number of measures for guests to ensure it works as safely and smoothly as possible. We ate off the Summer menu and were offered theIr Wednesday Eat out to help out deal. Was good value with the deal - without the deal £80 for three of us for two courses (mains hamburgers) and one drink each would have been quite high. Well done to the waitress who served us - she gets full marks.

We went here with my prenatal who we have not seen for 7 months, mainly because of COVID-19. It was a special occasion and it delivered. Food was excellent, tasty and filling. Great wine, attentive service and felt so safe given the current restrictions. Will be back.

Very efficient booking process, team members engaging and described the set up clearly, good food, spotlessly clean venue throughout and to top it a glorious sunny day sat in your terrace.

This was our first meal out since lockdown and we would like to thank The Park for the wonderful stress free return to dining out. The lady who waited on us was lovely I’m just sorry I didn’t get her name. Felt very at ease and food was delicious. The secret garden was lovely. Well done

Great pub, great staff, great service and delicious food. What’s not to like? If not for the fact that I believe perfection should be an aspiration rather than a destination I would have given five stars. Keep up the great work it’s working...
