Our party of 6 had just completed Rutland Half Marathon and were looking for somewhere to celebrate with good food wine and surroundings and couldn’t have picked better. Staff were very friendly and helpful. Couldn’t fault anything. Maybe not the cheapest but as the saying goes “you get what you pay for” and we didn’t leave disappointed! 👍

Five of us sat down to a wonderful lunch in the Conservatory. The Sunday Lunch menu was excellent, the roast beef in particular memorable. We enjoyed a very relaxing afternoon.

Usually had the lunch time menu which is excellent value. Staying in the area so had an evening reservation. O/A escorted into lounge area & pre dinner drinks ordered & delivered in minutes. My only disappointment that Hendricks served with lime instead off cucumber. The meal order was taken & served promptly by helpful & friendly staff. All courses of an excellent standard & throughly enjoyed. The 10% service charge was well deserved with the service we received. A most enjoyable dining experience that I would be only too pleased to recommend. Thank you Barnsdale Lodge, Jacqueline Willan

Afternoon tea very nice - waiting staff could have been more attentive. Due to low numbers the room felt empty. Really good food though

You made my Mother’s 70th birthday extra special with the lovely cream tea she had. You even brought out a decorated plate with happy 70th birthday on and a sparkler which I didn’t expect it really made her day. Thank you so much

The atmosphere was lovely and the service was great. Most of the food was delicious but thought the cheese was a bit tired. Otherwise it was a great night
