“I invite you to indulge in the freshest ingredients from our local suppliers, all wrapped up in a wickedly delicious afternoon tea in Hertfordshire."

– Andrew Beale, Managing Director


There’s no more civilised way to pass the day than with a delicious afternoon tea followed by a stroll around the beautiful 35 acres of grounds surrounding the hotel.

At West Lodge Park, we have a fantastic selection to suit your requirements. Our afternoon teas are served in the Mary Beale Restaurant or the Terrace Bar, so you can rest assured that you will enjoy a relaxing afternoon in beautiful surroundings.

Why not take a stroll around the grounds before or after your tea and enjoy the 800 species of trees in the Beale Arboretum? Alternatively, try your hand at a free game of croquet on the lawn, or a game of putting by the lake.

We produce all of our afternoon teas to order and as such we change it seasonally. You can view our current menu below.
