Very poor website setup. Confusing, crowded and in major lack of an actual description of what High Lodge is.
Good visit but staff could have been more friendly as they hardly ever smiled

The areas in the forest are wonderful. The staff are friendly & helpful. The cafe is a lovely building but the food & drink on offer is expensive & poor quality. Weak machine coffee - cheap tasting but not cheap to buy (I suggest a proper Italian barista coffee machine). The food is uninspiring (we had gloopy pasta dish). If only it was healthier, locally sourced, innovative & tasty it would be worth the premium price. Disappointing at such a fantastic outdoor space.
