Really disappointed in Denby Lodge. I have an intolerance to Gluten and Lactose and i was asked to call ahead go discuss my menu options. I, and the party organizer, was told that I could only choose from the festive menu and, due to my dietary requirements was limited soup without bread, turkey dinner without Yorkshire pudding, potatoes, gravy, etc...

After looking on tripadvisor for somewhere to have lunch on a day out we came across The Denby Lodge and im glad we did. We were greeted by a nice young man who got us a table and drinks. Good choice of menu and reasonable prices. The food was very nice and the service was great.

Recently visited this Pub Restaurant for the first time. Extensive Menu and selected a Fillet Steak - cooked to perfection and one of the best that I've ever had.

We came here for an evening meal for a bit of a change, and are already planning to return! The staff were really welcoming, and evidently worked really hard! My boyfriend had the gammon with chips and coleslaw, whilst I had the Denby Gourmet Burger. I must admit the portion sizes are massive! We could barely finish them! The food... More

We had wanted to visit here for ages and finally we went. We sat down in a very beautiful restaurant, and ordered a starter. My partner had the prawn cocktail which he enjoyed. We then had our mains.....I had the Gammon. The gammon itself was nice, but the chips were undercooked and the peas over cooked. My partner had the... More

Ate at The Denby Lodge at lunchtime. Had no reservation but was welcomed and a table found straight away. The menu was extensive and varied. Service was polite and the meals arrived in a timely manner. All were very good but not exceptional. The desserts were rich and very nice.
