Had a lovely Sunday roast and even the rather cold, damp day didn't make the experience any less enjoyable. The staff were great and it was just fantastic to be out enjoyable the food and the atmosphere.

In spite of the ferocious wind the day we visited and the cold it was a really delicious meal, in fact faultless! The chips were crisp, the Bernaise was divine and our steaks cooked really well. Many congratulations!! Very little atmosphere as it was so cold and not many diners but it can only get better. Thank you

Really enjoyed the visit. Easy to book. Used the app to order and pay which was hassle free. Outdoor heating would have taken the edge off a very chilly day but you can’t control the weather for us!

Great food - well presented and good portions. Restaurant standard, rather than standard pub grub. Lovely setting, chilled vibe and outstanding service.

We were so delighted with our evening at the Old Lodge, the food was delicious, we felt well-distanced from other customers, the staff were super friendly and seemed genuinely pleased to see us. All in all an excellent experience and very heartening, given that we are your closest neighbours, living on the common above the Amberley Inn. Thank you. Alison and Neil Truphet

I realise it's difficult at the moment with only outdoor seating. But with The Old Lodge being situated on the common, it is very exposed and consequently can be cold and windy. Maybe extra heaters and shelters could help!

Lunched in the garden on a sunny but slightly breezy day ...thanks to Covid restrictions. Very attentive and helpful service, easy to use app for ordering food and drink, or waiter/waitress order. Amazing light lunch. Thanks very much. Highly recommend.. especially when you can serve food back indoors.

Hi, whilst I appreciate that you probably have challenges in the kitchen working in a Covid compliant manner that does not excuse the poor service we experienced front of house. Having arrived on time it took 30 minutes to get any drinks to the table and over an hour before we saw any food. The food when it came was good but that was also the first time anyone came over to ask if everything was ok. We were never offered any more drinks and it was always difficult getting a member of staff over to us. Table 85 is in the far corner but with so few tables not really an excuse. Summary, food excellent, the rest of the experience rates a “should do better”

The setting is nice and the food was fairly good, although a bit pricey. Unfortunately the service, although prompt, was not up to the usual standard. We were sat at a table underneath a marquee which was dark and cold, despite the sunny weather. When we asked if we could sit in the sunshine we were told it was not possible as they were fully booked. At this point there were not many people in the garden and most of the tables were under the marquee. By the time our food arrived we asked someone else if we could possibly move into the sunshine. A no again, despite there being free tables dotted around the garden. A few minutes later, the table next to ours was moved out into the sun at the request of the people sat at it. No offer of moving ours even though we’d asked to be moved twice. By the time we left, the garden was still not full. A little forward planning by moving more tables into the sun and some brushing up on customer service would have made for a much more enjoyable time.

Very good experience outside under the open marquee. Food and drink were excellent and the lunchtime menu was pretty good value. Only downside was that it was a cold day and there was no heater - better for the environment though.
