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.
Good food at very nice location, staff is very kind and well organized
We were so looking forward to our visit to your lovely establishment. I have never criticised by email before and I shall not add my comments on trip advisor as that is damaging. However I must say how disappointed we were with the lunch. Firstly the coffee cups were really dirty and the coffee really not good. The meals were very average and poor value. How can you provide such an unappealing roast lunch. The potatoes were anemic and hard and quite honestly not freshly roasted, the brocoli could not have been tougher and tasteless, the Yorkshire puds were so soggy but the beef was acceptable and the carrots delicious. We did not venture in to desserts. My daughter did enjoy her veggie lunch but again your veggie/glutton free choice was only the one. The staff were very pleasant and yes we did tip them. They really cannot be held responsible for what happens in the kitchen. I have been in this trade for many years and do expect value for money and cleanliness. I feel that I have spent almost £70 for a very poor return. Apologies for being critical but you and I know it’s better to be informed and then the situation can be rectified. All good wishes, Maggie Rawson.
One of my favourite places to eat! Amazing food and lovely staff, always
Great lunch, impressed to find a vegan cheesecake on the menu which was lovely.
Once again a Five star show, everyone in our group of twenty was suitability impressed.
Lovely waiting staff
Busy Sunday lunchtime & nothing was too much trouble. 6 people including a 2 year old + 3 dogs all left v satisfied. We’ll be back! Thanks
Location fabulous on a beautiful summers evening, it’s a pity the food match the expectations, probably the worst fish and chips I’ve had in years. Service again was poor, unattentive staff failing to ensure drinks being refreshed, what a missed opportunity for the restaurant!
Had a lovely meal, thank you
Unfortunately the food wasn't as hot as it could be by the time it reached us!
The first waitress split a little beer on the table but did not offer to wipe it up. In her defence the glasses were full to the brim but she should have taken care. When she brought the wine that we ordered she did not show us the bottle to check it was the right one and did not offer to open it. The wine was placed in a cooler containing water which dripped all over the table; a serviette should have been placed around the wine bottle to prevent this from happening. We took a napkin from an adjacent empty table to use as a serviette. We were a group of 6 and we felt that the table had been squeezed into the small room exacerbated by the fact that the waiting staff had to walk around us to and from the kitchen.
Had a lovely birthday meal. Brilliant burgers. Thank you.
Excellent, all round! We will be returning.
We had an excellent roast beef Sunday lunch. The service we excellent with one exception. When I arrived the barmaid was serving someone on the same side of the bar as me, then turned away and for a while I felt completely ignored while she talked to a colleague. I did not expect to be served straight away. What I would like though is to know I have been 'seen' with a simple 'Be with you in a minute' It was the same person who served me and was very helpful after that but I think first impressions count for alot and the fact that I remember that first moment tells you something. The rest of our lunch as I said was very nice indeed.
The view was amazing!! The food was great and staff were super friendly and accommodating. Perfect for a nice dinner when the weather is great to sit outside. Would highly recommend and will definitely come back when visiting the Cotswolds again.
Food was great however service was very slow.
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!
