About The Old Lodge
et in the heart of Minchinhampton Common, well away from main roads and with unrivalled views of the Cotswolds, The Old Lodge is the perfect place to take it easy. The floor to ceiling windows in the restaurant offer stunning views of the beautiful common land and the cattle that graze nearby.
My chicken was raw in the middle. Not even close to being cooked not pink but actual raw flesh! Luckily I didn’t start eating from the outside I cut into it first otherwise I could/would have been seriously ill. When raised with Staff a waiter took it back to the kitchen but he didn’t offer an alternative or to replace the cutlery and just brought it back cooked. One waiter did apologise when he realised however was not aware of how raw it was. We then felt we got ignored for the rest of the evening. Other tables came in after us and were finished before us. When it came to pay we were offered a discount but not for the cost of the whole meal effected. Overall I do not think the staff were aware of the severity of the issue. Saying that the other meals were very good. Just let down by the chicken and the poor reaction!
Staff were very friendly and accommodating, with the place having a great atmosphere.
It was my Son's 18th Birthday Lunch, the sun was shining, atmosphere was great with food and service to match. A most enjoyable lunch.
The food was excellent, as we expected it to be, this being our second visit.
Great food and choice, with a specials menu.
More bar staff required for a sunny bank holiday. Food delicious and prompt which was great considering how busy.
Great food! We were so pleased to see such a good range of vegetarian options on the menu.
After booking online for Mother's day I expected to have a table in the restaurant area - instead we were directed to a small table in the busy, noisy bar area. I was expecting a nice table in the restaurant, for the special occasion - when booking it did not say I was booking a table in the bar, clearly the expectation would be a table in the restaurant?! You should make this clear for online bookings - we were very disappointed. Service was extremely slow too - it was like we weren't as important and were forgotten, being in the bar area. Overall a disappointing experience, on what should have been a special day for my mum.
Same Superb food and standards as always!
Everything was good except we had to wait 1hr 1/4 for our food and with 3 young children that is too long. Unfortunately as a result we will probably not book again with children. Thanks Dave Christie 1.30 booking sun 25th frb
Great food, lovely location, well worth a visit :)
We have been many times to the Old Loge over many years and always had a pleasant experience, our visit on Friday night was no exception, thank you!
All the staff were pleasant and helpful. Our food was delicious.
It has been sometime since we last visited The Old Lodge, we were not disappointed. The meal was excellent as was the service. I would not hesitate to recommend this venue to our friends and will certainly return again soon.
It was a little too hot in the bar area , the table was quite close to the fire. The starter and main course were delicious, however the deserts were a little dissappointing. Having said that the service was very friendly and there was a very welcoming atmosphere.
Friendly service and an excellent location
Great food. Lovely pub and dining area. View spoilt a little by all the cars parked around the building.
Everything about our visit was lovely and the roast beef was cooked to perfection, in my case, medium rare. The staff, the ambience and the table in front of the fire all added to a lovely lunch at the Old Lodge.
It was my Dad's birthday and i had dropped off a cake and some decorations. The staff kindly decorated the table prior to our arrival. I was very impressed with the staff who were serving the food and also to the member of staff who tactfully brought out the cake - which was a great suprise to my dad. I did feel the bar staff were perhaps not the most friendliest especially considering they are the first members of staff that visitors encounter. Overall we thoroughly enjoyed our visit, the food was lovely and the staff serving the food were great. Thank you very much.
The perfect Boxing Day lunch. Thanks for a fantastic experience.
As always a great place to have lunch, great atmosphere and surroundings. All the staff are polite and friendly and make it feel like you have popped round a friends house. Keep up the good work
Lovely food, poor service at the bar but it was busy so that’s not anyone’s fault.
We had a wonderful lunch at the old lodge. A great location, perfect for a nice walk on the common before lunch. The food was great and the service was excellent. We had a big group of 21 but the staff managed brilliantly - thank you.
Excellent food, good value for money, staff were friendly and helpful, even apologising for the noisey teachers who were understandably letting their hair down after the last day of term. Very nice environment particularly liked the open fire.
