In 1213, after the Norman Conquest, the wooded land we now know as Minchinhampton Common was confiscated and given to l`Abbaye aux Dames in Caen. Some 800 years later Christophe (a Norman himself) and business partner Nick continue to add to this fascinating anglo/french story in The Old Lodge.

Set in the heart of Minchinhampton Common with unrivalled views of the Cotswolds, this 400 year old hunting lodge is the perfect place to escape the rush. Enjoy quality, locally sourced food served in the restaurant, the bar area, one of our smaller dining rooms or al fresco in our spacious garden. The stunning restaurant accommodates parties of up to 85 people seated and has floor to ceiling windows that look directly onto Minchinhampton Common. After your meal you can sink into a large leather chair in our oak panelled room and relax with a glass of port or a good cup of coffee. Once fully restored and revived, you're ideally placed to set out and explore the common, with its rare orchids, blue butterflies and wide open vistas or wander into Minchinhampton or Nailsworth for a mooch around the shops.


April 23rd marked our 6th anniversary at the Old Lodge and and also 20 years since Christophe and Nick started at the Old Fleece. The Old Lodge continues to service the local community as a great hostelry, venue for celebrations and weddings, a travellers' rest and, less well known, as a place to hold a wake, where Nick will sympathetically organise a befitting reception.

In July we had the honour of hosting the Stroud Life Awards for the second year celebrating the best of the local community.

Watch out for the Christmas opening times and menus, including Christmas day that was an early sell out last year. These will be on-line by the end of August.

We are open to the public for breakfast, using the best and freshest ingredients to bring you some great dishes from 8am. Excellent coffee, great atmosphere and a fantastic venue: book on-line or just turn up and, if walking with the dogs, bring them in as well!

Golfing - we have negotiated reduced green fees for our guests with the golf course that, literally, surrounds the Old Lodge (the club house is 30 meters away!). For a look at the course, go to:-

If you want to get together for a birthday, anniversary, reunion, business meeting or wedding, give us a call and we’ll be happy to discuss your requirements. Private dining rooms are also available for parties of 8 to 24 people. The Old Lodge has accommodation and ample parking.
