It’s always nice to find out that other publicans do get the right message eventually, often too late.

6 reviews of The Lodge Tavern in English
Was taken to The Lodge by some friends who go here reguarly. Nice place to go to on a warm evening, big outdoor area and excellent range of cocktails on offer. (will have to come back during 2 for 1 time) Very ornate decor which was sort of hunting lodge but part japanese gardens. The night I was there they had live Jazz playing which was a nice way to end the weekend on a Sunday.
Horrible place - dingy looking inside with naff decoration. The staff are extrememely rude and could not care less about the customer. The food is expensive for what is basically cheap pub grub with fancy sauces. Salad actually turned out to be 3 rotten lettuce leaves and a tiny slice of cucumber. The blonde who works there is disgustingly rude if you complain. The actual quality of food was terrible - greasy, stale, cold. Had 3 people eating 3 different things on the menu and none actually liked their meal. AVOID!
I am quite surprised that this is in Ealing so its not too far for me to travel. The first time i went there was 2 months ago on a Sunday night where a live jazz band was playing acoustically. It was the best vibe I had in ages. Was with a group of my friends and we managed to find seats and had our own space. The decor is very boudoir so it gives that intimate vibe. Toilets are lavish with wooden furnishing and even a Venus de Milo statue!The staff were very nice and didn't leave anyone waiting. the cocktails are fab and they have their own customised names such as the Mr Whippy, the raspbomb and sweet as a nut and amongst others!The prices were moderate but the cocktails glasses were too generous.I have been here twice on a Sunday and is recommended to go here especially if you want to chill out.It would be suggested to reserve some seats near the front just so you can get a good listening to the band. The food is absoluetely fulfilling. I tried the oyster mushroom and chicken risotto and cannot wait for my next serving.Hoping to grab the recipe off them just so i can make it at home.
Full of the bright young things of Ealing, The Lodge made me feel quite old when I first visited it. I have since been back a few times and the owners have realised that whilst Tarquin and Jemima are quite pleasing to look at, they only come in when back from Oxford or Cambridge (or Harrow/Eton) and the slightly more mature, but none the less still trendy “elder” clientelle are a better bet for “all year round profitability”
Serving nice nibbles and good booze, the staff are fun and super efficient. The decor is half hunting lodge half something else, but all in all, this is a welcome addition to the nightlife of Ealing.
