Lovely food

This was my first visit to the Lodge since it had changed to a Thai restaurant and the food was delicious. We went for the selection of different dishes and each one was really nice.

We had a large party here to celebrate a birthday. The place is busy on a Sunday at lunch time and it is easy to see why. The food is nice and the cost is low. We had a very nice meal. The choice of menu was good and our 3 courses with drinks came to £17.50 a head. Now... More

I've been to Rayleigh Lodge many times over the years, usually in a party of four or five. Staff and menus have changed, but we have always felt welcomed and looked after. Not been much since it changed to Siamese Food, but Debbie told me on our last visit that it will become an Ember Inn in a couple of... More

Have been a few times in the Thai restaurant without kids staff very polite when going in the bar area it's clear they don't really want kids there, which is very disappointing

Having lived in Thailand it's easy to find restaurants that cater for the English taste and not the traditional Thai flavours...The Lodge does not compromise. Great tasting food, excellent service and very reasonable. We filled out a form and got two free starters.

We have been meaning to try this Thai restaurant for ages and finally managed it this week. Set amid a residential estate, it was a complete but pleasant surprise. The restaurant was atmospheric despite being very quiet although to be expected on a Monday. The menu was comprehensive and much was unfamiliar but the waitress was very helpful in advising... More
