A Good Spot for a Meal

It was cold and rainy yesterday when we arrived at the Affcot Lodge (which used to be the Traveler's Rest many years ago)...it provided a good break point in our travels that day and a not bad lunch of Soup of the Day (homemade mushroom and thyme which was absolutely delicious) and a good Baguette... read more

We have been here twice recently. Once for an evening meal and once for Sunday lunch. The evening meal was delicious (we had the lamb cutlets) and staff were very helpful and efficient. We also enjoyed the Sunday carvery. THE place has a large car park. Would recommend.

This is a lovely restaurant with lovely food, and excellent value for money, but to go in tonight and find the manager so drunk he could hardly walk (was not welcoming) he was pestering people for drinks and sticking his middle finger up at my partner. The other waiter staff were very welcoming but not a lot they could do... More

I apologise about the behaviour of this staff member on the night in question. This certainly will not happen again as the Staff member mentioned is no longer with us. However all the other hard working and pleasant staff that you have come to know are. More

Excellent choice of turkey, pork or beef, plus a good range of vegetables which you help yourself to as much as you like. Pork crackling was great, even though I didnt have the pork ! All hot and tasty. Very good value at under £10 per person. Will return

The welcome was good, friendly and efficient and there is a very spacious car park. The Affcot Lodge is however on a main road, and if you don't want traffic noise in the background I'd recommend eating in the bar area rather than the conservatory. Prices were very reasonable and the meals were generous and well presented. Our puddings were... More

We visited this restaurant while out with my mother who enjoys traditional and tasty food. She thoroughly enjoyed her meal in what was a warm and spacious dining area. The staff were friendly and there was plenty of car parking. I would recommend the restaurant to anyone wanting an unpretentious meal served in a friendly environment.
