“A warm welcome awaits you when you visit our Mary Beale Restaurant."

– Andrew Beale, Managing Director

It’s truly inspiring to have our walls adorned with the works of Mary Beale, and it’s a real pleasure to be able to offer you a very high end dining experience. Please don’t forget you are more than welcome to stroll the grounds before or after your meal.

"During your visit, if you do have any questions about the art or the arboretum specifically, I am more than happy to answer them."

Andrew Beale, Managing Director

Led by Executive Chef Wayne Turner and his restaurant brigade, The Mary Beale Restaurant offers truly fine dining in Hertfordshire. Our weekly changing menus offer dishes that are freshly made using the finest ingredients from our locally sourced suppliers.

With Free Wi-Fi connection available throughout the hotel, it’s the perfect place for work or pleasure.

Whilst we will endeavour to serve the full a la carte menu to tables of 8 and over, at times we reserve the right to offer a reduced menu, for those with smaller appetites delicious light meals or snacks can be served in the bar.

We are open daily for breakfast, lunch, dinner and our extremely popular Afternoon Teas (booking is advised).

Booking your table for the ultimate fine dining experience is simple. You can reserve a space online or if you would prefer, please feel free to call us on 020 8216 3906 or E-mail:

Dress code: We are in the 21st century and no longer insist on a dress code in the hotel. Please wear what you are comfortable with.

We would be more than happy to answer any questions or queries you may have regarding our unique restaurant.
