We were looking forward to eating at this restaurant as we were staying in the Bedford lodge hotel and last time we ate here it was a lovely experience. This time we were 'greeted' by a rather snooty head waiter who sat us next to the door on a low table in 2 armchairs?! We were going to have a... More

As a large group, we were in the overflow Classic area rather than the restaurant which reduced the ambience a little but allowed us to enjoy the food which was attractively presented and tasty. This wasn’t fine dining, more of a traditional Sunday lunch, but enjoyable nevertheless.

Between Xmas and New Year we phoned that morning to say we were looking for a light lunch and they said they could accommodate us. Beautiful setting. Comfy seating. We chose a starter and main from the £23 ish set Xmas menu. Two really excellently cooked and beautifully presented fish dishes. Gluten free presented no problem and they provided good... More

It was overall a poor to average experience. Starters were good which was probably the highlight. The steaks ordered for mains were served on the wrong boards (cooked to different temperatures as requested). They were identified correctly by the waiter as the sauces were correct, so one can only assume the mistake was made by chef responsible for placing it... More

This is the restaurant within the Bedford Lodge Hotel . When we ate there it was the middle of the horse sales in Newmarket and most places were fully booked, however this place was fairly empty. The service is poor, the food extremely moderate. BUt the clincher came when a friend of ours found a piece of metal ( looked... More

Great food but be careful if eating Saturday and Sunday lunch during a December as set menu for lunch is the same as Saturday evening which we didn't know so as a vegetarian I ended up eating the same meal two days running, would have gone al la carte Saturday if I had known!

Description
Squires Restaurant at Bedford Lodge Hotel has undergone a stunning refurbishment and menu overhaul. The walls are adorned with carefully selected pieces of art mostly conducive of still life which bring the artistic decor into being. The vibrant colour scheme of rich raspberry and subtle lime combined with the amazing food, make for a charismatic ambience, especially during the evening when the lights are dimmed and the lanterns are glowing. This intimate restaurant is perfectly suited for long, leisurely chats over a bottle of choice Sauvignon or other pickings from the vineyards of France, Italy and the New World. The expertly selected wine list is enhanced by the eclectic menus and delectable selection of dishes. Whether it’s business or pleasure, a light lunch with friends or romantic dinner for two, Squires Restaurant is a recipe for success. Staff who aim to please, chefs who deliver and management who know how to manage... the ‘proof is in the pudding’, as they say.
