We stopped by on the off chance that they could fit us in as we know how popular this place is. They seated us quickly with out issue and we had prompt service from our waiter. The Carvery was only £5.95 as it was not a Sunday and we piled our plates high with hot and tasty food. Choice of... More

we called in on the last bank holiday Monday as the Swan in Lympstone was rammed so we thought we would pop in and see. It was pretty busy with most having the all day carvery, we ordered off the menu, just sandwiches and burgers it was perfectly acceptable, no frills, and inexpensive we got what we paid for.

Having praised this restaurant in the past I am really sorry to say that I will not be eating at the Nutwell Lodge again. The roast Beef was tuff as... More

We have tried a number of times recently to get into the Nutwell. 4 adults turned up at 2:15 on Bank Holiday Monday only to be told it would be a 40 minute wait for a table as we hadn't booked. Strange as the car park was far from full and there were lots of empty tables. So we tried... More

Very good. Still good quality meats and great selection of veg. Great value for money. Keep it up. Generally good service although one of the waiters did seem a bit clueless.

Decided to try this after a gap of many years and although not a huge fan of carveries, the quality of the food and service was very good. Will return again! Particularly good value Mon to Fri when two courses are £7.95
