WELCOME TO THE

Old Hunters Lodge

Set on the edge of Whipsnade Common this is one of the oldest houses in the village thatched with reed in the Norfolk style. Said to date from the fifteenth century, Old Hunters Lodge embraces both old world charm and a modern dining experience.

We would like to thank our fantastic customers for their continued support since reopening. Tables can be booked for inside dining or you can simply turn up to be seated outside and enjoy our beautiful landscaped garden.

We look forward to seeing existing and new customers soon.

Best Wishes, Louise, John & the team
