My partner and I called in here for a coffee after a walk around the beautiful mitchinhampton common. Beautiful interior with a lovely dining room. We ate in a side room filled with lovely old leather sofas which was charming. As the food looked so good we opted for their steak sandwich which was terrific. Would definitely return here and...

Stayed one night midweek. Lovely setting, very remote. Felt like I was in the Peak District ! Friendly staff and evening meal and inclusive breakfast was faultless. Evening meals attract many non residents so a sure sign the food is worth travelling some distance for. Mr room was smallish for a double and a bit eclectic, but very comfy and... More

Great service, good food, excellent location and comfortable rooms. What more could you ask for! Wish I had found this place sooner. Great place to have a drink outside on a summer evening and good menu in the restaurant

We stayed a night after going to Gifford's wonderful circus on the common. Though they had been very busy with a wedding they served us an excellent late meal (9.30) and were attentive and good humoured. Food based on good quality local ingredients well presented. Rooms were comfortable and one of the party of four said the breakfast was the... More

Visited The Old Lodge and felt the food has really gone down hill, service is average and menu is expensive for the quality that is served. Have eaten here in the past and found it to be excellent. Two people in the party had the seafood pasta and left 90% of the dish. The seafood did not taste fresh and... More

So many things disappointed my husband and I on the final day of our holiday during this visit. The staff welcome was not overwhelming or professional and it appeared that there was no responsible manager to speak to (just piles of young staff who were somewhat casual). Room 1 is the largest with a bath and shower and expensive at... More

Attended an early evening wedding here in late July. From the moment the wedding party arrived to when we departed in the early hours of the morning we were looked after. The main room was decorated beautifully for the ceremony with all the windows opening onto the common , it was a lovely summers evening.. It was such a lovely... More

This was a business trip and I just needed one night near Stroud. The Old Lodge is in a lovely location with excellent country views, surrounded by a golf course on which cattle graze. It is a beautiful old country pub which no doubt makes a pleasant venue for the locals, with an excellent selection of beers. The restaurant served... More

Well positioned on the edge of Minchinhampton Common, great in itself to visit for walks and spectacular views over the Stroud Valleys, The Old Lodge has good food, fine beers and wines, and great ambience. on fine days and summer evenings the garden is also a delight, with a good number of tables. The food is not cheap, but is... More

I grew up in the Cotswolds and have eaten at the Old Lodge many times in the last couple of years and have always loved it and the food has always been fabulous whether as a couple or group of friends or with my family. My partner and I therefore decided to have our Wedding reception up there as food... More
