called in without booking with our two springers in tow. Make to feel very welcome. Great food, great service and the fact that we can bring the dogs is the icing on the cake. Will definately be back
Booked here for my daughters birthday and we were quite a large party. The portions were a good size, I would say too big for the children's meals (but some adults helped with those). Overall everyone was happy with the quality of the food. I can't remember the name of my meal but it was basically chicken pieces in a tomato base sauce. I found that the sauce was far too strong, almost like a tomato puree. I would go again but would order something different. More...
Hi I want to personally Thankyou for opening up early for us yesterday as we finished earlier than we expected at the crematorium after saying goodbye to our brother who enjoyed visiting your restaurant with my mum.You organised hot water so we could make teas and coffee and made as welcome even thou we arrived unexpectedly.The food as agreed with another family member arrived when you said it would and everyone enjoyed the spread you layed out for us mum loved the soup, it was really nice not to have it there as soon as we arrived it gave everyone a chance to talk and exchange stories about Kevin .So Thankyou for all you done for the Dowsett family in helping us say goodbye to Kevin.Barry x More...
Tonight I came with my family and friends for an evening meal to celebrate my 21st birthday! The staff were so lovely and we were made very welcome. My birthday was made to feel very special!

We went here with a large group of friends and kids. The menu was huge (making us think they’d spread themselves too thinly) but the food was great and the staff were extremely friendly and accommodating.
Absolutely fabulous both in terms of service and food.Would definitely recommend, unfortunately there are no photos of our main meals as they were so gorgeous they were consumed before we took photos!The Hello Me burger is amazing, fabulous combination of burger, haloumi cheese and caramelised onion chutney Desserts gorgeous too.Suitable for tables of 2 to larger parties.Vegetarian options and a separate vegan menu available.

Excellent food, large portions, very attentive staff. We loved the atmosphere and access, due to very good parking facilities, is very good.
Simon J. Läck
Very good value for money. The food was tasty and the menu offered a good range of choice. I thought the childrens options were good and also generous in size.The staff were friendly and efficent. As stated in other reviews, the interior is a bit dim and the decor not to my tase, but that is subjecteive. On the whole, a pleasant experience and the portions served were on the generous side. There is clearly a lot of effort going into the place and a new car park was under construction when we visited. The bar area is small but welcoming. More...
Excellent staff, food was wonderful on both occasions over a couple of visits, I will be back with friends and family. The Wednesday Steak night was a treat, cooked to perfection with a good selection of puddings. There is a good choice of beers and cider too. More...
They didn't have any vegan food but they did edit and cater for me, good food good place.
We came here tonight didn't the first time for a family birthday. The food was lovely including the catering for a vegan in our family. The staff were friendly and helpful and interacting with our children which always helps! We enjoyed our evening and would definitely return. More...
Great food excellent service friendlyhelpful staff...
Really nice pub food, cost a bit more, but worth it. Get what you pay for!
Good food, a real ale on tap, and great service.
Open all day for food which was just what we'd been looking for and only 10 minutes away. Youngsters were well catered for and us adults were very happy with our choices too.
Went for a family meal. Good food reasonable prices. Just a shame there is no view as it's location is just so random.
Great food even though they got the order wrong. Slow service but the waitress was new.
Good beer but the bar itself is tiny as the place is set up for food. The menu is extensive and portions are huge. The food meets but does not exceed expectations.
Excellent meal very friendly staff and nice atmosphere. Nice to feel like a customer and not a number. Thanks will come again.
Lovely location and good ambience in the restaurant. Wide ranging menu at a good price. Food well presented. Service very efficient. Will definitely return. Give it a try More...
Very good menu with lots of choice on menu. Price for food we thought was very good .plenty of food on the plate and very good quality. Staff were all very friendly. Only problem we had was it had 3 big noise table's. we had the table next to the door .there was a bit of a cold draft ever time someone opend it and couldn't be bothered to close it behind them.but you can get this any were you go just wrong night for us .not the restraunt s fault so will be going back soon to hopefully have a quiet night as we were very impressed with the food More...
Good food good service good price good atmosphere
We regularly come here. You can't go wrong with the steak. :)

Lovely pub, friendly helpful staff...had a lovely Sunday lunch, hoping to go back before we leave...
Great food fantastic staff
Open for lunch and evening service (although closed on Mondays), they offer an extensive menu to cater for almost every palette. With lunch, main and grill menus available, the hard part is narrowing down what you’d like to eat. Offering steaks, chicken and fish alongside vegetarian dishes. Served with a choice of potato including sweet potato fries. More...

We've eaten at the lodge as a couple, with our young children and as a large group for family celebrations. The team at The Lodge always deliver fabulous food and great service whatever the occasion. The best Sunday Roast with huge home made Yorkshire puds! Highly recommended � More...
Dropped in late afternoon on Sunday for a spot of lunch, restaurant was busy, bar full of happy locals chatting and cheerful staff willing to serve and accommodate. Really lucky to have this amazing pub on our doorstep. Oh and the roast lamb dinner was spectacular! 'A roight royal Narfolk feast!!' Cheers Vik, Gav, Sophie and all the staff. More...
Lovely atmosphere and great food. The staff were very pleasant and helpful.
Last night was our second visit since your rebrand and once again we enjoyed our meal. Family friendly, generous portions and a warm restaurant on a very chilly night. Will be recommending The Lodge.
Had a family meal last night and couldn’t fault anything. Was fabulous food, fabulous staff and definitely recommend it.
Food was excellent and friendly staff, lovely new car park and tidy beer garden, will be going back very soon.
A perfectly cooked Sunday roast, with very generous portions of mixed vegetables and a lovely warm setting in the restaurant, overall a great dining experience , would gladly recommend the Tuddenham Griddle & Grill to all, a very fair to go with it. 5 Stars
We had the lodge for our wedding reception on 4/11/17 and I couldn’t praise Vicky and her staff any more if I tried! The day ran so smoothly thanks to them and the thought and preparations they put into our day were just out of this world! Vicky took the pressure off most things for us which was ideal considering we have a little one. However took all my ideas (which were quite precise) and made them reality but better than I could have imagined. Thank you so so much from the bottom of our hearts. It was the best day ever! Love the Garners x More...
Had a great Sunday lunch today at The Lodge, thank you for spoiling my friend with a wonderful selection of Vegan options we will definitely be back for her to work her way through the options! Vegan nut roast and my roast beef were great! More...
A huge Thank you to Vikki, Gavin and all the staff for looking after us so well. We had a great night, the food was delicious and the service was perfect especially as there was 70 of us eating 3 courses, could not fault anything. Would highly recommend for any large party or special occasion. We cannot thank you all enough. More...
Visiting as a family we enjoyed a wonderful lunchtime meal. Food was outstanding and the service was second to none. You must make room for dessert when you visit The Lodge, the chocolate brownie and chocolate sauce was amazing!
After some thought we decided,to have our Son& Daughter-in-law's Baby Shower at the Lodge and so glad we did Vicki &Gavin are so helpful,made sure we could get in early to decorate so the place looked amazing inside,also it's hard to put to words the value of what we got the sandwiches sausage rolls the lovely cake's and cream tea was so nice. Even Vicki remembering that my daughter loves Salmon & Philadelphia sandwich and bought a plate full out just for her. Our family and guests also could not believe how much it cost us true value for what we received. Thanks Vicki &Gavin � x More...
We had a fantastic time felt extremely relaxed welcoming stunning place and food was amazing you deserve this award outstanding we will see you all again very soon we have entered you online on the online form good luck to all thanks guys for fantastic evening Shirley and Simon xx
Cannot thank Vikki and the team enough for our absolutely gorgeous wedding day! The professional, yet friendly approach they use was clear to us from our initial meeting and never left us at all. This alone is reason to book your wedding at this venue, but there are hundreds more positive reasons. No task is too big of an ask, as they will always try their absolute best to help! I still cannot believe how beautiful everything looked yesterday and the food was "to die for" as lots of our guests told us!
Thank you all again, we'll be seeing you very soon! More...
Excellent food, large portions, very attentive staff. We loved the atmosphere and access, due to very good parking facilities, is very good.
Found this place yesterday on Trip Adviser. Phoned at about 1:45pm and were very lucky to be able to book a table (the last they had available, as they had a function on) for 30 mins time. Lovely clean place with a good menu and friendly staff. Food was great across the board - I had a garlic bread with cheese starter, followed by their rump steak/breaded scampi/garlic prawns main & finished with the vanilla brûlée. All good. Rump steak medium rare and superbly cooked. Brûlée delicious. Can highly recommend and am looking forward to returning soon. More...
Great food in a great friendly place��

Good food and friendly staff.
a quick stop during a driving tour, they catered very well for such a large group during a drizzly morning with good tea/coffee and cake.
Very welcoming with great varied food and friendly staff, discovered Theakstons Barista Stout, what a pint
There's always a risk in trying out a restaurant for the first time, especially one based in a pub and one that is remotely located. But based on some reviews here (and a spree voucher) we decided as a group of four to give The Lodge a go. The pub and restaurant were quite full, which is not a bad sign, we were seated quickly and drinks were ordered/delivered quickly too. We were next to a large party and although they were quite loud they didn't put us off too much. We loved the surrounding decor, it was very modern and clean.We had a bit of a wait for the Sunday lunch but that was absolutely fine as we knew it was cooked fresh. When it arrived it was obvious it was indeed fresh. It had a delicious home-made flavour and the portion size was good too. It was one of the nicest lamb roasts I had eaten in a restaurant. We finished with a good old fashioned bread and butter pudding which was amazing. Now.. all reviews must have at least one gripe!.. it's nit picking but the music played in the restaurant was not right at all. It was like listening to a radio station!But I am pleased to say The Lodge was quite a success. We would definitely recommend it! More...
Fantastic food & lovely friendly staff always a pleasure to visit & the new gin list is a must
Great little pub in the middle of nowhere. Caters for gluten free
