We recently celebrated my mums 85th birthday in their A la Carte restaurant. Both the staff and food were wonderful! It was a important night to us and the staff did everything they could to make sure it was a special evening

I go to The Lodge fairly frequently, usually with the kids in the summer. For the kids it's great - bouncy castles, climbing frames, ball pit and a large area for football. Last weekend we went for a birthday celebration, and ate indoors - 10 of us - 6 adults and 4 children. We stayed for a few hours, were extremely well looked after, all staff were polite and friendly. The food was great for the price, they didn't rush us, and were very welcoming to the children.

On the road between South woodham Ferrers and Battlesbridge (A132) ,set back from the road is The Lodge Country Inn, with a large car park and very nice setting including a duck pond, outside seating area and kids play area etc.
Myself and my family have eaten here several times including bar meals , carvery and from the ala carte menu and always found the food to be hot , tasty and good value for money.
The Lodge has regular Live bands which range from jazz bands to rock bands .
To sum up i would say the Lodge Country Inn is a good example of The Great British Grub Pub with lovely outside gardens and seating in the summer months.

My friend and I stopped here for lunch out of convenience and it was packed with Christmas lunch diners! The one barmaid (who was also being a waitress) was polite and friendly despite being rushed off her feet! The lunch menu was vast but when it arrived it was quite disappointing. The food looked great on the plate but my coronation jacket potato was so overdone that there was barely any potato in it. It was possibly a left over from the previous day! The coronation chicken was more like tikka- strange but quite nice, just not what I'd ordered. My friends chicken ciabatta was ok but nothing wonderful. The table was sticky and my friend drank half of her drink the realised that lipstick was across the top of the glass and she hadn't been wearing any - yuck! A nice enough place to stop for a quick drink, but wouldn't bother with the food unless you're prepared to have an average meal.

Good honest no frills pub grub. Noisy on a Saturday night with live entertainment. But if you want full plates with a good choice of drinks then pop in.
