The Mary Beale Restaurant is named after the stunning art work by Britain's first professional woman painter. Many of her original works adorn the walls.
Our Executive Chef Wayne Turner and his team together with the restaurant brigade can now offer you a memorable dining experience with gastronomic delights on the menu and for those with smaller appetites delicious light meals or snacks can be served in the bar.
Afternoon Tea available Mon - Sat 15:00 - 18:00 & Sun 15:30 - 18:00
I arranged Afternoon Tea for my Mother-in-law and her twin sister's 80th birthday. The service provided was excellent and they were both made to feel very welcome on this special occasion. Many thanks.
Very disappointing visit. I have been here for afternoon tea on a number of occasions in the past and always been very satisfied. However this visit was not up to usual standard. Very pleasant gentleman took our order-but service was very slow-although not all tables occupied. Tea came after a long wait-we had to ask for milk. Food was also slow-although good quality. No offers of refills-we had to look for staff to ask. Asked twice for box to take remaining cakes. All in all I could not bring myself to recommend
The quality of the food was lovely. We found that the sandwiches were a little unimaginative. They seemed rather too traditional. Having eaten afternoon tea at West Lodge before I am sure that I recall the fillings to be more inspired. The tartlets and mini exclairs were delicious.
Service ot up to usual standard due to number of trainees
We thoroughly enjoyed our tea time with you. Beautiful afternoon, so we all had a superb stroll around arboretum as well. Thank you.
This is the third time we have celebrated our anniversary at West Lodge with close friends and it gets better every time. The staff are so friendly and helpful that it makes the occasion even more special.
Quite the best restaurant in the area regarding ambience, service, value for money, and most especially the food. I am happily recommending it to all my friends if asked.
Lovely food and plenty of tea and coffee.
