Twice this week we ate at Hunters Lodge our local pup, after attending friends’s funerals. The food was fresh, tasty and plentiful. The quiches straight from the oven with lovely salads. The second course looked very attractive and judging by the returns, popular too. Congratulations!

Reecently visited The Hunter’s Lodge and enjoyed a delicious dinner in a cosy setting. The Louisiana burger (chicken with caramelised pineapple) was superb and I thoroughly enjoyed it. Staff were very attentive and friendly and we will be returning again in the near future!
