We are delighted to announce that we've partnered up with Christie's Catering to bring you another high quality menu showcasing local and seasonal produce.  Each dinner will offer an exquisite 3-course meal in a relaxed setting, which is all part of the unique dining experience that our guests love so much. These classic summer favourites may seem simple, but we are doing them extremely well and the taste will be superlative!

This year, we are celebrating our 5th Summer milestone!

And therefore, we have looked back at the menus that we have enjoyed and picked out some of the most popular elements you've loved from each year alongside some new treats for your taste buds for 2024.

Looking back on the inaugural The Lockdown Lodge, spending time with the people you love but hadn't been able to see for months was so important to us, so this year we are sticking to the popular sharing boards that were introduced last year.

What could be better than passing around platters of delicious food and soaking in the sunset with the people you care most about?

    Something for everyone, and all of it is sublime! First up the setting, it's unique and beautiful! It takes a little effort to get to but you are more than rewarded for your toils. Book a table for dinner and the service, food and drink menu are excellent, well thought out and delicious locally sourced food nicely served to share (which more places should do) delicious wines and great service. If you fancy something impromptu then you can drink from the bar downstairs and choose something from the streetfood kitchen then enjoy them on a sofa outside watching the world float by one the river. Its a shame the lodge isn't a permanent venue, but then that is all part of its magic!

    The atmosphere and location was as always excellent. Having been the last 2 years as well we were not as impressed with the main course as before. It seemed strange to have dauphinoise potatoes with potatoes salad and a quinoa salad. Not sure we would return for that menu or we might just come downstairs for drinks and a more casual meal.
