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!

We booked in for dinner after racing at Newmarket and although we didn't find too many winners on the course, we definitely found one here! Excellent, well run restaurant. Pre- dinner drinks area (to peruse the extensive menu) before having an excellent meal - i.e. well presented perfectly cooked, decent sized steaks accompanied by a bottle of wine from a... More

We had a 3 course meal here a earlier in the month as part of a tour. The food was very good, i had the burger as a main which was tasty, my wife had the souffle which was average. We were not given or offered bread so had to ask the waitress for some, after a while it arrived... More

Here for a business meeting and evening meal. Bar area is fine, light and comfortable. Slow to offer us our menus and no inclination to take an order, eventually taken to our table and then again no enquiry if we were ready to order. Layout of the restaurant is very dark in the lower part and we moved and then... More

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.
