What our customers say...
Lovely meal with friends for my wife's birthday. Service was very attentive and the food delicious. Also we received a 'Happy Birthday' plate at the end of the meal which was a great touch. We'll definitely be back soon!
Thank you for a fabulous afternoon tea, a perfect retirement treat for our colleague. We are all local but some of our friends hadn't been to West Lodge before but they all agree they would definitely come back soon Thank you again

My parents and I want to thank you and everyone at West Lodge for making their Golden Wedding such a lovely occasion. The Edward Beale room looked beautiful, the food was delicious and the waiters were very welcoming and attentive, without being intrusive. All our guests have said how much they enjoyed the evening and we would definitely recommend the West Lodge to anyone planning a special occasion.
Hi Louise & Lisa,
Just a quick note to thank you for all your help arranging my parents party. The afternoon was a huge success and particularly as we were blessed with fabulous weather. The room looked great, lots of positive comments about the food, plenty of booze floating around - what else could our guests ask for? Patrick was a great help on the day managing the event - do please pass on my thanks to him and the team. Once again, a big thank you for being such a pleasure to deal with and helping us celebrate such a significant milestone in style.
With kind regards
My party of 4 very much enjoyed our champagne afternoon tea. We were the first to arrive and the last to leave which is testament in itself to how much we enjoyed our visit. All the staff (from the young girl on work experience but especially James) were very attentive and accommodating. By allowing a change from Rose to Brut champagne and extra sandwiches instead of cakes for 2 of the party really provided a personalised service. The surprise delivery of 2 fruit plates with chocolate writing - 1 to celebrate a retirement, the other a 65th birthday was the icing on the cake - so a very big thank you. We have recently attended a similar tea at Brocket Hall but the unanimous vote was that the West Lodge was far better on both quality of food and service. So a big pat on the back to all your staff.

Just to say thank you for all your help in organising matters on Wednesday.
The Service went well and was conducted with great dignity and we were all able to say a respectful goodbye to Dad.
Everything at the West Lodge was superb from start to finish and the Family were able to relax a little secure in the knowledge that everyone was well looked after. The food and drink was marvellous and we received many positive comments about it. If something is worth doing it is worth doing well; it is exactly why the Hunters have been visiting West Lodge Park since the 1960,s.
Thank you again Louise and please also pass on our Families kindest regards to all who contributed in making the day go so well,
With every good wish,
My wife and I had yet another delicious meal, my fillet steak was cooked to perfection. The staff are as welcoming as always. Thank you West lodge see you again very soon.
Hello Andrew, what great team work on the Beekeeping Experience Day. West Lodge Park characteristic thoroughness and attention to detail, from Adrian who carried our heavy boxes and directed the guests, Will who welcomed us and sorted out the room, Matthew for organising lunch, phone numbers, and looking after us at the end of the day, Andrew who asked us if there was anything we needed doing at the apiary when we there a few days before, and Jane who prepared all the information packs. Lunch was great, the pork excellent and the honey parfait popular. It all came together, a big thank you to everyone we encountered on Saturday, and others behind the scenes who we did not see, for making the day go smoothly for the guests and for us. There is a great atmosphere in the hotel and we really enjoyed running the beekeeping day, it went so quickly. The weather was great too!
We are looking forward to the staff visits on 14 July.
Best wishes, Mary and Ron
I have completed a review on TripAdvisor which is rightly very positive about West Lodge Park.
I have to congratulate all of your team for making even our one night stay very easy and comfortable. All the staff we met, the chap greeting at the front door, the receptionists, the waiting staff in the restaurant, the bar staff and the late night concierge were all very helpful and pleasant; they all seem to enjoy working at the hotel, which really shows.
Thank you for a very comfortable and enjoyable stay.
We always enjoy this restaurant. Good atmosphere and consistently high quality food and good, friendly service. Excellent pianist as well. Well done - we look forward to our next visit. Clive and Nessa Memmott
Just to let you know that Peter Myers rang this morning to say a huge thank you – the evening was absolutely fantastic – the room, the food and the staff were all incredible – he said we could not have done anything any better – it was superb. A view that was echoed by all his guests.
He asked to be put through to you to thank you for your very kind gesture of the prosecco - he will call again tomorrow as he will be going away on Wednesday.
With kindest regards
I am thinking of having a wedding in the hotel and this meal has made me think it is the right place.
Our 12th visit to the hotel and the food seems to get better every time. We enjoyed both our evening meal on Thursday 18th June, and lunch on Saturday 20th, but the lunchtime service on 20th was outstanding. The team working that day were impressively efficient at dealing with a number of functions / parties at once yet remaining unfailingly polite and helpful. The service was seamless, professional and a credit to the hotel. Particular mention must go to Suzy and Peter(?The young man with the white glasses) who were calm, well organised and seemed to be genuinely enjoying their work. Together with the manager Matthew, they worked as a perfect team and enabled us to have a thoroughly enjoyable lunch before our long journey home. Please pass on our personal thanks.
Hi Andrew and Chris
Just wanted to write to say a big thank you for a wonderful birthday lunch (definitely NOT father’s day) yesterday.
The food, service and ambience were all so enjoyable – I cannot praise the team highly enough.
It was great to see the hotel so full and yet everything was very relaxed and ran so smoothly that it felt like we were the only guests in the restaurant – such personal service is lovely and certainly went a long way in making my day quite special.
With kindest regards
Enjoyed eating and conversing with friends in a lovely atmosphere where there was minimal background music . We could actually hear without shouting and appreciate this excellence ambience for socializing. It is rare nowadays. Food, wine, service were all very good. Appreciated the ethos if sourcing food locally where possible. Gardens were delightful too.
As I sit waiting for breakfast I just wanted to write to thank you and your wonderful staff for making me feel so welcome over the last 12 months.
My contract at Capita is finishing and unfortunately that means I will no longer to have the opportunity to stay in your hotel with its fabulous grounds.
If I was to single a few people out I would specially like to thank Jim The night porter, Sandra the receptionist and Pat the wonderful breakfast manager.
You have a lovely hotel and even better staff they are a credit to you.
Once again many thanks.
Thank you so much for the tour today. I thought it was brilliant. We all had a fab time. I cannot believe it has taken me 8 years to go on the tour. I will definitely come on one again later on this year. (if you will allow)
Given the dietary restriction within our party and the fact that my mother suffers from dementia and her behaviour triggers are never the same twice in a row, your staff are to be commended on their professional service that enables all these factors to be taken into consideration and provide an enjoyable dining experience, not only for us, but the other diners too. The food is beautifully presented, all requests are dealt with attentively, and nothing is too much trouble. The menu is varied and changes from visit to visit which in our experience is usually monthly. I always recommend dining here.
Just to let you know that Lodge Herakles/Gothic, who had a private dinner with us last night in the King Charles, phoned to say they had a fantastic evening. They all thought the food and service was excellent.
Events Sales Team
Thank you so much for your wonderful hospitality - all your staff were gracious, caring and professional.
The meeting room served us very well. Hence a new booking for the 2nd September (all the trustees and I staying the night) and staff joining us for a Philo planning day on the 3rd. (thank you for all the wonderful bedrooms but could we all stay in the main house - a request from Terry + Juanita).
Andrew, THANK YOU so much for taking the time to host us for a wonderful lunch yesterday - it was much appreciated having the opportunity to talk leisurely with you.
And THANK YOU so much for the tour of the Arboretum…WOW! fascinating, educational and quite inspiring.
Look forward to seeing you in September.
