    The place is beautiful but needs some TLC. The restaurant was very quiet - only 3 other tables had people on them but for us, that was fine. The lady who served us was lovely, but there wasn’t a lot of staff about (probably because there was only 3 other tables). Food was nice and came quickly and the bar area, with the roaring fire, was lovely for after dinner drinks.

    Beautiful location. Staff very attentive and service very good. Food was of a very good standard and nicely sized portions. The restaurant was very well laid out, fine dining at its best.

    Tastecard accepted so the total bill was very reasonable with the 50% discount.

    Definitely would recommend this restaurant.

    Stayed at the Bestwood Lodge Hotel and dined in the restaurant both nights. Had a really good meal both nights and was very pleased with the staff and everything in general.

We say…

Located just a fifteen minute drive from the heart of Nottingham city centre, on the outskirts of Arnold, is the Bestwood Lodge Hotel. Formerly a Victorian hunting lodge built in 1865, Bestwood Lodge is nestled within 700 acres of parkland and combines the elegance and beauty of a small stately home with all of the modern amenities and comforts expected by guests today.

The Parkside Restaurant acts as the hotel’s main dining room. With its beautiful hand-painted ceiling, huge crystal chandeliers and spectacular views across the garden, The Parkside Restaurant provides the perfect backdrop for every occasion. Whether you’re planning a romantic dinner for two or Sunday lunch with the family, you can rest assured that you will be well looked after by the friendly staff.

The menu available in The Parkside Restaurant offers both traditional British and continental dishes designed to tantalise your taste buds whilst keeping even the fussiest eaters happy. The cuisine is prepared by talented and passionate Chefs who pride themselves on using only the freshest local produce to produce the delicious plates of food available on the a la carte menu. The menus are updated seasonally to reflect the vegetables, fruit and meat in season and, when available, highly recommended dishes include the garlic wild mushrooms, pan-seared sea bass risotto, and delicious summer chicken which is stuffed with garlic butter before being wrapped in smoked bacon and laid on a bed of steamed leeks accompanied by a white wine sauce. To compliment your meal, a comprehensive wine list ensures that you will find the perfect partner for whatever dish you choose.

In addition to the main dining room, The Foyer Bar is a cosy and traditional room complete with oak-panelled walls, log fire and large leather sofas. It’s the ideal meeting place for relaxing before a meal or to unwind with a night cap in the evening.  The Garden Bar, which is opened up on the terrace in the summer is the ultimate spot for enjoying those balmy summer evenings as well as enjoying the frequent barbecues held when the weather permits.

Bestwood Lodge is also home to several luxurious private dining room which can seat from 10 guests all the way up to 120 so if you want to add a little something extra to your special occasion, be it a birthday, anniversary, christening or corporate event.

If you’re looking for historic splendour combined with the comfort and convenience of modern amenities all nestled within spectacular surroundings then we really can’t recommend Bestwood Lodge Hotel enough. With great food, a great atmosphere you really can’t go wrong when you decide to dine at The Parkside Restaurant.
