Description: This is a fully refurbished deightful country pub offering a great homecooked menu with traditional pub choices and evening a'la carte. The lunch menu is varied and all dishes are made and produced onsite. There is a full wine list and friendly efficient staff. The lodge benefits from easy access from the A47 just a few minutes from Dereham and 10 miles from Norwich. Large hard standing carpark and enclosed family garden. Good honest food at good honest prices, more than just a country pub. Also a bespoke wedding venue for the smaller wedding party who wish for an intimate day.

“Valentine meal”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 16, 2014 via mobile

Having been quite a while ago, we viewed the menu and booked for Valentine's Day. The service was friendly and the food delicious. Our waitress came to check that all was ok and when I said I would've liked more sauce with my steak, a small jug appeared within minutes. Ambience, food and value for money all highly recommended. The addition of the art work (available to buy) was an added bonus and I came away with an extra valentine gift!

“Dinner for one please!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 7, 2014

Looking for somewhere that provided good home-made hearty meals and this was the perfect place. I called at 4.30pm for a table and arrived there at 5.00pm. Greeted by the very friendly chef who took my order and delivered a fabulous meal which turned into 3 courses.

I had the cheese and walnut salad, Rib-eye steak with Sweet potatoes fries and followed with bread and butter pudding ............delicious. Will I eat there again I most certainly will.

“Xmas Party”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 15, 2014

This was the 2nd year we have had our Xmas Party at The Lodge and it was first class. The food was superb, waiting staff very helpful and attentive. We had a disco after our meal and danced some of the calories off. Have had birthday meals here with the family as well and have never had reason to complain

Really pleased you chose to celebrate Christmas with us for the second year running, indeed the dancing helps to work off those Christmas calories and extra indulgences! Looking forward to planning your next works party will it be casino like last year, disco or something new? Will have to get my thinking hat on!
Kind regards

“Really Impressed”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 4, 2014

We went to The Lodge after seeing the previous reviews on here and I cannot recommend this place enough. The menu is fairly priced and uncomplicated. The service is friendly and very well timed. They were also able to cope with a large party without there being any delays for the people eating in the bar. The food we ordered was absolutely delicious (I really would suggest trying their hand pressed burger).We will definitely be going back again soon.
