Diners here at The Lodge Country Inn are enjoying new menus alongside a fresh new environment thanks to a major refurbishment.

Our friendly, family run business situated in the heart of Essex has been given a new look including new décor, carpets, tables and chairs, following extensive work in November 2013.

With a large marquee, the ‘Glass House’ restaurant serving tasteful a la carte menu, an affordable bar menu packed with more than 100 different meals, comfortable hotel rooms and a traditional bar area, we really do have something for everyone.

Our fully licensed bar has an extensive drinks menu, comprising of a wide array of wines served by the glass, real ales, bottled and draught beers, while our large 120-seater restaurant boasts an appetising range of dishes to suit all tastes and requirements including a two-course special for £10.95 and three-courses for £12.95.

Our a la carte menu is also available in our stylish conservatory offering you a spacious comfortable environment to try our five star food, and enjoy a wide selection of wine served by the glass. The conservatory can be booked for special occasions and set menus can be arranged to suit a range of budgets.

We have probably the most comprehensive selection of dining in the area,
served Monday – Saturday 12 noon – 9pm, Sunday 12 noon – 8pm.
