We pop into The Lodge on a regular basis; it isn't the smartest of pubs but does have an outstanding range of ales (local micro-brewery and Belgian etc) and a rare-to-find atmosphere that is both welcoming and relaxing. Well worth a visit.

Its a dump beer expensive tables old and tired toilets dirty not much more you can say I like a pub to but a little back in for its customers not just to take your cash barrels left outside like a scrapyard

When I went it was dirty, dark, the service was terrible and the beer was off. The beer garden is big, but if you want a nice pub with nice people - I suggest the Mere Inn.

Great pub with a selection of really good beers/lagers. Best pint of Krombacher ever and at a very good price. Good traditional pub with no frills but great atmosphere.

Excellent friendly and warm atmosphere, wonderful staff and an amazing landlady who made us feel welcome and made to feel like one of the regulars. One of the best local pubs we've been to. Thank you

As regular visitors to The Lodge we can only praise the quality of the beers and wines, the ambience and Phil's taste in music. It might not be the most salubrious of pubs but it more than makes up for it with a very pleasant...More
