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

I have sent you a separate email as I think it a more appropriate means of feeding back last night’s experience as it was very varied. The above star ratings do not convey a true picture as some aspects were very good while others really need addressing.

On the day everything was wonderful and very professional. The only comment is once in there, I did not see anyone come in to clear or ask if we needed anything during the time we were there and also the initial mistake when it was recorded on your online payment system as a Christmas menu not a Funeral Wake. On the actual day the food was wonderful and the venue lovely which lots of the guests commented on Thank you

Experience was spoilt because we sat wearing a coat throughout as it was so cold, and not for the first time! Ruined what should have been a nice occasion.

Great to see a range of vegan options - including a tasty bread and butter pudding. Staff all very friendly and seemed genuinely happy! Menu changes often enough to warrant regular visits. Highly recommended.

Service was atrocious. One main course had to be returned as was not what was ordered and when it came back was minus the vegetables. Extra "seasonal" veg consisted of sweet corn 1 slice of leek and 2 leaves of kale. The encroute resembled more of a Chinese spring roll. Bread and butter pudding was just stodgy with no fruit and when we asked the waitress she said the fruit was left out so that vegans could eat It!!!!!! Drinks were brought to the table wrong. We had to wait 15 minutes for the bill as we had a 25% off coupon and only the manager was able to work the discount out and when the bill finally arrived we had been overcharged on the drinks. A gin which was £5.80 on the menu was charged at £8 !!!!! Will be a very long time before we revisit which is such a shame as this used to be a lovely pub and restaurant. Can't understand why on a busy Saturday night no management was on the floor organising staff, the youngsters were just milling around and were so obviously in need of guidance. At one point a waiter tried to take my half full wine glass away as they had run out of wine glasses behind the bar !!!!! 2 rounds of drinks and 1 of deserts were delivered to our table but not even ordered by us which we obviously refused but just shows how unorganized the whole place is. Not being ageist but how can a manager who is only a couple of years older than the staff be able to organise and run a busy pub and restaurant. You need to get your act together as, going by other reviews, a lot of regular customers are walking one way out of the door and won't be returning.

The food we had was very tasty and overall really nice! However, some of the table had the pork belly and the duck of which the portions were very tiny especially compared to the chicken pie! It wouldn’t hurt to have a bit of mash on the side especially for the price of the pork belly and the duck.

We’ve eaten with you now quite a few times and always found the reception and waiting staff to be excellent Yesterday’s pork loin meat was mostly fat which I can’t eat , the crackling was forgotten and I asked for the gravy to be served separately which it wasn’t I didn’t complain at the time and regret not doing so as I think the kitchen staff need to be aware of these issues

It was very cold and a lot of people were wearing their coats to eat. Perhaps turn the heating up or invest in spring loaded outter door closure on the secondary entrance doors. The food was was lovely and staff wonderful but it wasn’t a comfortable atmosphere due to the temperature.

I booked on line, and I said the meal was for my wife's birthday. They gave us a table that was crammed into a space that was very close to another occupied table. I asked for another table and the gave us one in front of a large fireplace that had a draft. The table was also on the main thoroughfare for people leaving o r going to the toilets.They didn't provided an ice bucket with our prosecco, or a steak knife with my lamb steak.the water glasses were dirty, and the on line booking said we only had 2 hours before we had to vacate the table .

Our experience on Sunday left us very disappointed Cold area of restaurant 1 light missing left us in a gloomy atmosphere. Food took an absolute age to arrive couldn't quite work out why the bubble was off the menu when bacon eggs sausages still available Saturday menus muddled in with Sunday menus caused great confusion in a group of 8 and also highlighted that prices differed on Sunday you run out of soya milk and bacon missing o. Full English you used to be an excellent place but I feel this has let you down will think carefully about returning Jan
