We often eat out in Hemel and have tried, and enjoyed, many different restaurants. When a special occasion is being celebrated, however, Boxmoor Lodge is our choice. The friendly welcome and intimate bar area is lovely and the conservatory restaurant is light and airy, but the food itself is the main attraction. The whole menu changes each season, and the...

Sunday lunch (I had whitebait, followed by roast beef) was stunning; perfectly cooked and beautifully presented, so tasty. Evening menu also lovely choice, I had the steak (delicious and perfectly cooked) and mussels to start... though they were a little bland, and other starters people had looked delicious. Good service and good choice of drinks. Not cheap, but the chef's... More

On arriving at the Boxmoor Lodge there was a function so no parking available in the Lodge car park. We parked in the Swan Antique shop next door, I noted others were parking on the road outside on the double yellows!! We were eating at the Conservatory restaurant - this was our second visit. We were given the menus and... More

A lovely setting with great service and very special food- looking forward to repeating the experience in a couple of weeks - the creme brule of the day is a particular highlight but for quality and value difficult to fault. You won't regret booking in here!!

I ate here with friends when staying over at the hotel. The food was absolutely lovely - well presented, perfectly cooked, and worth five stars in my book! The service was also exceptional, I would definitely eat here again.

My family and I visited Boxmoor Lodge restaurant after my darling Dad's funeral. The service was excellent and the food was delicious. We liked it so much we have booked to go again on what would have been my Dad's 80th Birthday.

We had a great evening "Company Do". Lovely friendly staff made us feel very welcome on our arrival. The decorations on our long table were lovely as was the whole establishment. It is not easy to bring all the food quickly to a big table but this was accomplished with precision. All 3 courses were really nice, everyone really enjoyed... More

Was looking forward to the Christmas dinner with all our friends but was left disappointed. The reasons for this are: Chairs far to close together no room to eat properly. Ended up passing all the plates,cutery etc over the table from each course to the waitress as she couldn't get behind our chairs,spent most of the evening doing this very... More

There is no doubt: this is the best place in Hemel. Service is warm and effective while the food is amazing: great starter, home made bread and a very good meat. Ice cream above all. I've seen this place improving a lot and I am glad it is now constantly good. Highly recommended. M.

Description
The Conservatory Restaurant, at the delightful Boxmoor Lodge in Hemel Hempstead, is a friendly, family owned business with an exceptional modern British menu. The light-filled dining room has crisp linens, garden views and fresh flowers, and the service is faultless. The Head Chef at Boxmoor Lodge, Stuart Ambury, oversees a kitchen that prides itself on high-quality GM free ingredients and creative presentation. Starters such as a fine Crisp tempura tiger prawns, mango & mint salad with ponzu dipping sauce or Baked fresh figs with Cumbrian dry aged ham, celeriac remoulade and port syrup are bound to tempt you. And the main course selection includes some mouth watering treats like the roasted rack of lamb,beautifully presented with pea puree, fresh peas & lamb essence, the lamb is cooked just right, very succulent and seasoned well. Then there is also the local Aylesbury duckling from Mr Waller, using the breast which is roasted perfectly pink with a crispy skin, crisp leg croquette with a rich orange & honey sauce. The restaurant also has a wonderful wine list and a superb outside dining area for the alfresco experience.
