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

Good quality produce and tasty food. Service generally good but had to be reminded of certain requests e.g. Extra sauce/ drinks etc On the whole a great atmosphere and we left feeling very full! Thank you for a great Easter lunch.

Re disabled parking bays both are difficult to use due to overgrown shrubbery. Not easy to open car doors to assist the disabled person out and get to the car with walking frame etc. Needs review/attention

Disappointed with quantity of food. The portion size of the trout was very poor. Toast would be preferred with pate. Steak was very griselly and not easy to cut. The waiter was very pleasant however we found the food to be tasty but the portions were not good value for money, so would not choose to visit again - sorry

We joined you for Mother's Day - we got good service from Emily - attentive & engaging yet letting us have our own space. Mothers were very happy and afterwards we sat in the bar area for another hour enjoying the atmosphere / company. A very pleasant afternoon / early evening. Thanks

It is good to see more and more gluten-free, dairy-free and vegan food options or dishes that can be adjusted. Keep it up. Also enjoyed the live music.

Food was lovely all food was hot the only negative thing I found was the level of service there did not appear to be enough staff looking after the tables which were all full and the length of time it took for the drinks to be brought to the table when ordered to the point that we ordered a bottle of wine for the table before the main course which was brought to the table when we had practically finished the main course. In fairness to the Park they took the bottle off the bill

Over all it was a good experience but we all committed that the main courses were not very big portions?

Oscar and team helped us in organising a 21st birthday meal for our daughter and quite simply, they did a great job. We were in the Garden Room, atmosphere was lovely, the food was delicious and the service excellent, especially considering how busy the whole pub was. Would highly recommend- thank you.

We came for breakfast on Mothers Day. The restaurant was only half full at the time but the service was terriable. After waiting almost 45 mins the bacon and egg breakfast were cold and undercooked and had to be sent back. On asking for the organic porridge I was told that there were no berries. Then the waiter spoke to the chef and found some....?? The porridge is my favourite dish, served on a wooden platter, nice large bowl of porridge, honey and berry compot on the side. The porridge was brought out in just a bowl with no berries on the side, but the porridge was red with the berries already mixed into it. I sent it back and explained how the dish was usually served. The waiter then brought out a bowl of porridge and in his other hand was a small pot of berry compot. This was placed before me. The porridge was luke warm and there was no honey. I explained how the dish was usually served, on wooden board and inquired where the honey was! I was told thats how its being served today!!! What a joke! No presentation the food wasn't being served as described on the menu. It was then taken away again, and after an hour since order, was brought back on a wooden platter, with honey with berry compote. But, the porridge was OK, not its usual standard or amount..... The other breakfasts came back, marginally better than first time. My husband asked for a second coffee when his breakfast was finally delivered. This was forgotten about and we had to ask a third time for the coffee when he was half way through is breakfast. Not the usual service expected from a usually plesent venue....

We all enjoy our monthly breakfast get together at The Park. The team make us very welcome and set yo a big table so we can all sit and chat together - sometimes over twenty of us! Good food, friendly atmosphere, we all recommend it 👍

The service was great, the starters were disappointing. The Terrine was served without the Chutney and with two small bits of toasted bread not brioche. We had to ask for the Chutney and the Brioche which did appear after some time. The black pudding scotch egg did not have any black pudding in it and the egg was slightly over cooked. The rest is f the food was well prepared and presented.

Me and my family spent a lovely afternoon at The Park last Sunday. We couldn't fault the food or service. The staff were attentive, but not intrusive. The food was very tasty and beautifully presented. We will definitely be visiting again in the near future. Than you to all the staff who looked after us so well. Chris.

Really disappointed yet again. Great venue. Great customer interface staff but let down by very poor kitchen performance. We have visited several times in the last few months but every time we had problems with the food presented. (No problems with the menu). On this visit 5 of the 7 dishes served to our table of 4 had to be returned to the kitchen! (Happy to supply more details if required).
