Just been to the lodge for Sunday lunch, the food was delicious but unfortunately that's not the whole story. We arrived 30 mins before table was booked and as there was only 4 people in restaurant we asked to eat then. We were told we could sit at our table but couldn't order til 3 o clock as the chef wouldn't be happy! Then when given the menu I asked about a roast dinner but not available because there was a party of ten in a separate room and we could have pre booked a roast. No one told us that when we booked! However I chose a suet pie and waited the 30 mins to order but told that was unavailable too. Eventually I got a lovely chicken dish and my son had a steak which was also good. The problem seems to be lack of staff, the nice lad at the bar was running around so was the lady working on the tables. I dread to think what it is like on a busy day. Such a shame as I really wanted to love it here as we used to come here regularly before it re opened but Sunday roasts are a must and to be told we couldn't order before allotted time was a bit much. What about passing trade? Do they turn them away when the restaurant is nearly empty? I hate to be negative but that's the way it was. Lovely food but let down by lack of staff and poor planning.
