About Old Hunters Lodge
Set on the edge of Whipsnade Common this is one of the oldest houses in the village thatched with reed in the Norfolk style. Said to date from the fifteenth century, Old Hunters Lodge embraces both old world charm and a modern dining experience.
Great lunch, they are managing the covid restrictions really well
We came to celebrate my husbands 60th and we cannot find fault with any of the service we received. It was excellent and we will certainly be turning this place back into our regular as we are Whipsnade residents. So glad this pub has changed management as last 2 managers are the reason we stopped using it. Well done keep up the excellent service and we will see you all again very soon.
Very pleasant atmosphere and I can see this being a very popular venue in the Summer, we will define returning!
Perfect venue to enjoy a first meal and drink with Mum after the lifting of the Covid restrictions. Sun shining on a beautifully maintained garden with attentive but not intrusive service. Checked in on Facebook to pass on to friends. Thank you
Disappointed that me actually booking a table means nothing as I was informed when I arrived thankfully a table left within 10 mins of arriving so we grabbed it. And being asked to pay for the food bill whilst only having received the food 3 to 5 mins before was very off putting and disappointing. On a good note food was lovely and the pub looked beautiful but won't be rushing back.
Absolutely delightful pub, lovely grounds, lovely food, brilliant service, what more could you want. Will definitely make more trips here!
Live this pub, so cosy, food is great and the staff are so friendly, the owners always go out their way to check on all the tables which is perfect! Hight recommend
Great location, with many walks around the Dunstable Downs on the doorstep.
Everything was perfect but could have been warmer
What a wonderful experience. My wife and I had a lovely lunch. Service and food were excellent and friendly. It’s little independent pubs like this that we should be supporting. We will be back very soon. Thank you very much guys. Neil Smith
Really delicious food, wonderfully friendly service and beautiful venue. Highly recommend.
Lovely food and setting and service - can’t wait for the next meal!! They went above and beyond to make the lunch lovely
Had a lovely meal, generous portions, friendly service and Covid secure.
Lovely friendly pub, and a lovely roast dinner! Can’t wait to go back !
We had to wait quite a while for our first drink and the tables weren't very festive. Food was good save for the cranberry stuffing and the Christmas pudding wasn't homemade.
Fab place, great food and service, only downer family behind us watching I am celeb on their phone really loudly! :) Apart from that, the Old Hunters lodge is a lovely old fashioned English country pub, good beer, food and service
My husband and I had a very enjoyable evening. The restaurant was not too busy and all safety measures were taken. The staff was very friendly and polite and the food was very good value for money, as well as tasty. I will definitely be visiting again once the Covid restrictions are lifted.
Staff are so friendly and love the cosy atmosphere
A variety of portion sizes would be good - generally, the older one gets, the smaller the appetite.
Under new management and you could tell this straight away, much better service. Great food, we all really enjoyed it. Will definitely be going back after lockdown. Thank you.
Fabulous evening. Atmosphere lovely but needs a little something. Feels a bit bare at times due to covid I guess. Staff amazing as is good. Always feel welcome. Thank you will be back.
Excellent service and lovely food.
Fantastic meal, superb service. Even though meals are a touch more expensive than other pubs the food was so good and well worth it!!
Maybe due to the Covid -19 rules made the atmosphere a little stark but noneltheless my wife & I had an enjoyable meal
Lovely food and lovely friendly staff. Hope to come back soon
