The Old Lodge


Information For The Old Lodge

Set in the heart of the Cotswolds with a beautiful view over Minchinhampton Common, it is the perfect setting for your special day.

Congratulations on your engagement!

Thank you for your interest in holding your big day at The Old Lodge, we’d love to hear your ideas on how you would like things to be – and do hope we can be a part of it and help you make it everything you both are dreaming of.

As I am sure you are starting to discover, there is a lot to be done so I just wanted to start by letting you know that should you need a hand with anything outside of our venue and catering remit, we have an abundance of brilliant suppliers and key contacts within the industry that we can call upon.

Now…back to the main event, our website link provides some sample menus and drinks packages for you but as I say, they are simply samples and so if you have other thoughts about what you might like, do say, but I hope at least these give you an indication of cost, provide some inspiration and your mouth starts to water a little!

When it comes to all the other bits and pieces such as the white tablecloths, china, cutlery, glasses and napkins and the like, it’s within our menu cost and this includes all the things that, if you like ‘just appear’ and ‘just happen’, including the provision of a silver cake knife, an easel for your table plan, use of our red carpet for during your ceremony, connection to our iPod dock for background music, use of our 10 round tables with up to 100 dining chairs and a built in and fully staffed bar. It also includes a member of our senior team who will oversee your very special day and there will also be plenty of chefs and waiting staff that will all muck in.

There are minimum spends in place for weddings at The Old Lodge. These can be built up of The Old Lodges ceremony fee, your wedding breakfast, table drinks and anything else we can provide for you on your special day. The cost on Monday - Thursday is £1,000, on a Friday is £3,500 and on a Saturday is £5,000. For exclusive use of The Old Lodge a £12,000 minimum spend will need to be reached. Minimum spends exclude accommodation and over the bar sales.

There are just a couple of other things I’d like to mention…firstly, we have 3 beautifully licensed areas for ceremonies to take place at The Old Lodge. The panoramic restaurant with views across the Five Valleys, our smaller, more intimate panel room or outside under our licensed pagoda (weather permitting!)…and finally, we have 6 bespoke en-suite bedrooms, so at the end of the day you can retire to our sumptuous bridal room, sink into a blissful, much needed sleep and wake to gorgeous views across Minchinhampton Common.

Please find a link to our website where you should find all the information required in order to plan your special day should you choose to celebrate with us here.

Well I think that’s it for now, all that remains is for me to congratulate you both once again and to let you know if there is anything further I can help you with at this stage, please do not hesitate to contact me.
