A last minute decision to go to The Lodge for Sunday dinner, we turned up late afternoon and immediately we were given a clean perfectly set table in the conservatory. The place was busy as you would expect on a Sunday but the service was very quick and thorough. There was a good range of drinks, perfectly served, the full... More

What it excels at is good food at good prices with good portion sizes and fair service. The real selling point of the Lodge though is it's family friendly facilities. A marquee on the back has a table football... More

We went to the Lodge for a nice lunch but unfortunately the road to the restaurant was being resurfaced and with no alternative route signs some of our party didn't make it. Shame as I was a very nice meal with good company.

The staff is friendly, the rooms are clean and comfortable, and the food is delicious. We loved the traditional English breakfast and the steak and kidney pie served in the pub. It was the perfect...

Went for a pre Christmas dinner with about 14 friends and we were all pleased with our meals. Went there last year for the same thing but this time it was a lot better. Service was good and we were not rushed plus it was nice and warm in there.
