A lunch time meal for 5 was very reasonably priced, baked potatoes, scampi & chips etc. The portion size was big, some of us struggled. The side salads were colourful & full of a great mixture & made a welcome change to the few standard leaves of a mixed catering pack. The service was swift & with a smile despite... More

Very friendly staff were welcoming on arrival, very helpful in finding us a table and setting up a tab for drinks and the meal. The lamb shank was very tasty and served with a healthy selection of vegetables, I would recommend the Hunters Lodge for good pub food in very pleasant surroundings.

The one year our annual xmas get together meal was hosted elsewhere the food was just not in same league. This year the standard was the highest ever. The food was beautifully cooked, well presented and very reasonably priced. My only complaint was that the whip round for tips wasnt enough, so I added some more because they deserved twice... More

Thank you so much for taking the time to review. I am so sorry we couldn't accommodate you last year - we were fully booked for Christmas Parties by 1st November (as were we this year) and if it's any consolation - there were a large number of people who we had to, sadly, turn away. However, - so glad... More

A very popular restaurant/pub, due to its excellent menu, friendly staff and welcoming decor. We were told, as we sat down, that there may be a wait for food as they were so busy. A good sign, as it was midweek lunch time. The meal was worth the wait, although we didn't have to wait that long at all. But... More

We went to have a romantic meal after we had been apart for a couple of weeks. The food was good and worth a 4/5 star rating but our meal was spoilt by a toddler in nappies running around everywhere and knocking things over. The bar staff and parents (who were actually laughing at his behaviour) seemed totally indifferent to... More
