Nestled in the heart of Minchinhampton Common, The Old Lodge is a wedding venue near Stroud. Surrounded by the Cotswolds, you'll find no shortage of gorgeous, spacious gardens and outstanding views across the Stroud Valleys. Renowned for its atmospheric pub and restaurant, our charming country pub can provide all you need for the perfect wedding day.

At The Old Lodge, we have three stunning licensed spaces for ceremonies of up to 100 people, including an outdoor pagoda. Situated away from main roads with ample parking, our venue offers a chance to celebrate your entire day in one idyllic location with the most stunning views over the five valleys. The property features a relaxing restaurant, cosy hideaways and 6 plush bedrooms to retreat to once the dancing is done! For larger families coming from slightly further afield, a number of self-catering apartments are available for longer stays less than ten minutes away in our nearby Sister-pub, The Old Fleece.

Everything under one roof

The Old Lodge team understand that weddings can be stressful celebrations to organise and endeavour to share some of the load. They can handle every aspect of your reception, covering welcome drinks, food, and decorations if needed. Our dedicated events manager, Abi, will work closely with you to ensure that you have a wedding day that is unique to you both.

Wonderful team who bought our dream wedding to life

The team at The Old Lodge bought our wedding vision to life. Molly, the event coordinator, was attentive of every detail and request that we had. There were prompt responses to all our questions, and clarifications on elements that we were unsure about. Leading up to the day, nerves were eased through email and everything was accounted for. On the big day, Molly ensured that we were well looked after, keeping us to time and letting us know of anything that we should have been involved with. The whole team on the day were wonderful, bringing everything together so smoothly and without a hitch. We could not have asked for our wedding to go any better and it is a day we will never forget. A huge thank you to Molly and the whole team at The Old Lodge who worked tirelessly throughout the day (and evening!), and who bought our wedding dream to life.

Mr and Mrs Mellor (4th May '23)

Molly and the team at The Old Lodge were fabulous from start to finish. Comms were always clear and Molly helped make our day run exactly the way we wanted it to - down to accommodating our different requirements for aspects of the day to ensuring guests were where they should be at the right time. Molly was super supportive on the day itself, dealing with all suppliers and guest queries as well as making sure I (as the Bride) had everything I needed. We fell in love with The Old Lodge during Covid, even before we were engaged, and new immediately that would be our wedding venue. Just beautiful and can't wait to come back again soon for more delicious food!

We had the most amazing day from start to finish, all the staff were helpful friendly and nothing was to much trouble. Everything was planned and carried out with thought and care . We can’t recommend them enough for the most perfect and amazing food all prepared to accommodate people with food allergies . This venue was a big part of helping our day turn out to be everything we wanted for our wedding.

Perfect in every way

Being a social awkward person myself I thought I would really struggle finding somewhere to host my wedding but molly and her team made the whole experience so easy for us. Always responsive and no question was a stupid question. Our day was absolutely amazing and enjoyed by everyone. The food is outstanding and the whole day was perfect.

Beautiful wedding venue, amazing food and great value for money

We had a perfect, relaxing and low key wedding exactly as we had hoped at the old lodge. The old lodge team made every effort to meet extra little special touches and adapted the meals for me (gluten and dairy free). The food was one of the main reasons we booked the venue; and that didn’t disappoint on the day either. Would highly recommend this relaxed, beautiful venue which is also extremely good value for money.

Molly and the team at the old lodge could not have been more professional and on point with everything. We were luck yo be able to Wed outside in the beautiful garden. Myself and my wife were all looked after and catered for in every aspect. The whole day was perfect and I'd highly recommend.

Wedding Day Venue

The overall experience was excellent. The venue was perfect and everything ran smoothly on the day. Communication could be improved in respect of the venue keeping in touch with information rather than being instigated by us. However, all questions were answered and alterations to requirements were addressed and accommodated throughout. In summary, we would do it all again and highly recommend the venue for a wedding.

Beautiful setting for a relaxed and fun summer wedding

We had a great day, Molly and her team did a fantastic job setting everything up, decorating both the main room and the marquee. We didn’t follow formalities at all so were looking for a laid back vibe which we definitely got, canopies were great, lots of positive comments. Main food was good too, we opted for a BBQ style buffet, only comment was that there were a couple of points where the food got quite low before more dishes came out but I can understand it’s hard to predict the rate of which dishes get eaten.
They accommodated both the band and the children’s entertainer and helped with setting up so we didn’t have to think about a thing on the day, which was fab. I stayed the night before and the obviously the night of the wedding, the rooms were lovely and the breakfast was great. We had also arranged a large gathering on Friday night, we were given our own room and a lovely meal was provided. Overall we had the most amazing day, in a beautiful building surrounded by gorgeous views, all our guests were well looked after and had a great time and Tom and I were very happy we chose the Old Lodge and Molly and her team to give us the day we were looking for!

We decided on the Lodge as it was the perfect setting. Lots if parking, beautiful views and lovely rooms to stay in. The thing that most took us were the people, Molly was the wedding planner and we couldn't have asked for anyone more lovely, she went above and beyond for us. I had forgotten to write on my favours so Molly took it upon herself to do this for me she even helped me tie my sash when I thought all hope of doing so was lost. Our every wish was there. We had wedding, wedding breakfast and evening reception here as it was so easy to stay in one place. Manu was on hand along side Molly throughout the process and on the day he was fabulouls nothing was too much trouble. Henry was behind the bar and we had such a blast with him they all make you feel like family. The food was to die for, all of my guests were super impressed the portions are really good, the evening buffet surpassed our expectations. The room was set up just as we wanted it, OCD Molly had it all looking perfect. We had the most wonderful day, my friends are still talking about it and many have now become regulars at the lodge. We stayed over night and breakfast the next morning was stunning. I couldn't recommend The Lodge more for the perfect day. We are so glad we had ours there ... one word ... AMAZING
