Basic starter battered mushrooms, with a small selection a green leaves. Ordered the Turkey and Pork for mains, we got a Beef and Turkey, they did offer to change but we stuck with them.... More

I went to Denby Lodge for the first time on a Sundary and unfortunately, didn't realise that they only serve the typical British Sunday lunch menu with a few other choices such as fish and chips, scampi, lasagne, pie or vegetarian. I selected prawn cocktail for a starter which was very good. For the main course I chose home-made lasagne... More

We had a good reviews from our friends about Denny Lodge so gave it a go for lunch. It was a nice surprise we had a great lunch and are going to book for a carvery on Sunday. The only negative was the tables for couples were a bit close together.

This place is a lovely family pub, feel very cosy with a nice big car park. Most of the staff are lovely. The food can change some days its beautiful other days a microwave could do better, it just really depends on how busy they are. The alcohol and lounge area is lovely. Also the puddings are nice which you... More

We visited Denby Lodge for the Christmas Fayre, and are really glad that we did! We got a warm welcome upon arrival, and were shown to our table. All of our meals were delightful and came in much bigger portion sizes than we expected! The Tomato and Basil soup starter was particularly excellent! And the mince pies were warm and... More
