Clive Dodman and his staff of Dodman Leisure Limited welcome you to The Kings Lodge Hotel and Hunters Bar & Restaurant.

A historic hotel dating back to the 17th Century for local, business guests or the independent traveller. Hunter's Bar & Restaurant offers a home-cooked menu featuring British pub classics and other dishes from local produce. There is a well stocked bar with Real Ales and an extensive wine list. In the winter the two large open fires create that relaxing atmosphere where you can feel the history of the King's Lodge.

The historic and royal association of the Kings Lodge spans five centuries. Built in the 17th century, it was converted to a hunting lodge by the Lord of Langleybury who later became Charles I of England.

In the cellars below are the remains of passages said to lead to a nearby house occupied by Nell Gwynne, Charles II’s lover.

Our en-suite rooms are drenched in history and the warmest of stays is assured.

The Bar and Restaurant Menus, prepared by our enthusiastic Chefs, consist of primarily British pub classics as well as dishes for those seeking something a little different. With a wide range of starters, main courses and desserts we are sure you will find something you love. Do not worry if cannot manage a big meal or simply do not have the time. With our range of bar snacks, sandwiches, filled jacket potatoes and salads, we are confident that there is something for everyone.

If it’s just a drink you require, every hour is happy hour at Hunters Bar, with all drinks only £3.30 and, if weather permits, relax in our peaceful south-facing garden.

We are also a dog friendly pub, whether it is a drink or a stay you require.

Whatever you are looking for, Hunters Bar & Restaurant at the Kings Lodge Hotel will ensure that it will be an experience that you will not forget... for all the right reasons.

A review from a previous guest

Kings Lodge Hotel... you MUST stay here!
Such a charming, friendly and fantastic value for £ hotel, steeped in history with a beautiful fire (roaring brightly with logs when we visited in November!) The homemade food was fantastic value for money, quality and portion size. The drinks, at £3.30 for a pint of guinness, baileys, to vintage port. Staff could honestly not have been more pleasant and willing to help, including the lovely atmosphere at the bar with guests and friendly locals made for an unforgettable experience. Even with the stories of the premises being haunted added to its charm and character! In a nutshell... I can't wait to return!!!!
