I have had many social events here with friends, always had a great night, this was no exception, thoroughly enjoyed the evening, we were met at the main door by Pearly Kings and Queens which set the scene for our 'Ol London knees up...pie, mash and liqueur was excellent, homemade bread pudding to follow yummy, all added to the 'London' theme brilliantly...loads of Union Jack bunting on display...I am really glad Chas and Dave did 2 sets, as one would not have been enough...auction prizes were brille, nice to see Les Dawsons wife and daughter, who gave their time generously, helping to make lots of money for charity, staff friendly and all work really hard...everyone is so welcoming, really nice to go somewhere family owned, not part of a franchise...thanks and defintiely see you all again soon...Sue

Great night thanks to chas and dave if only we had left as soon as they had performed !!

Les dawsons daughter was very nice and probably would have done a great job had her mother not had taken over and totally tried to outshine her thus putting on a rather embarrassing and awkward auction and raffle !!

Bars well overpriced and the food was not worth the £40 ticket next time ill go to the stables to watch chas and dave at half the price and minus some cringy comparing !!

Yet again the Cosgrove Team took care of me and my guests. 'Real' Pearly Kings and Queens (the genuine article not just people in costumes) greeted us at the door with a warm welcome.

The small intimate nature of the venue allows you to be up close and personal to the act (my fellow revelers were thrilled to be inches away from the Legend that is Chaz and Dave).

As a bonus there was a charity auction which was presented by Tracy and Charlotte Dawson, the wife and daughter of the Late Great Les Dawson. They spent the entire evening mingling with all the guests chatting and having photos taken. Lovely people and pretty decent prizes too.

I have been to the Lodge many times over the years and have been taken care of and the aforementioned evening was no exception, although if I were to 'nit pick' I would have liked an alternative to the liquor served with the pie and mash, perhaps some gravy, but that is just personal preference.

I have thoroughly enjoyed so many special entertainment nights with wonderful food at The Cosgrove Lodge Hotel but ...WHAT A COUP LAST NIGHT!

Homemade pie and mash plus bread pudding with cream whilst being entertained by the legendary Chas & Dave, currently celebrating 50 years together and promoting their new album Nationally on TV and Radio.

Les Dawson's wife and daughter drove down from Blackpool and back at their own expense to run the raffle and auction in aid of the Showman's Charity supporting the Appeal for the young Mollie Matthews who suffers a rare form of cancer.

Yet another brilliant evening hosted by the Emmett family and their hardworking and loyal staff.

Well done to you all xxx

My husband and I stayed at the cosgrove for a one night stay as we pulled up we were a little disappointed with the grounds they were rather run down and could do with a bit of TLC as could our room the room was rather tired and in need of a good clean and refurbishment.The staff were the hotels saving grace helpful and pleasant and the breakfast was great so thankyou for that.
