'I just wanted to thank you for putting on such a good event last night. I am a member of the Bluntisham Badminton Club and we have been coming to your Christmas party nights for a number of years.  The food was excellent - I can't remember when I last enjoyed a meal so much - and the chocolate fondant was to die for!  The waiting staff were efficient and unobtrusive so it was wonderful to feel almost normal again.  In fact, it was the first time most of us had socialised like that since covid struck last year' Date of visit: December 2021

'Another Great Golf Weekend at Lakeside with plenty of Golf, Laughs, Beers, Bowling and of course Fantastic Food and Service. So a BIG thank you from all the Lads to you and all the Staff at Lakeside' Date of stay: October 2021

'Please will you pass on our thanks to the staff at Lakeside Lodge who made our recent stay so memorable. We were all impressed by their dedication, especially those who managed to keep ahead of the game at breakfast time.....easier said than done. As far as golf was concerned, we found yet again that the course improvements really make a difference even though you have a badger doing its best to undo the work of the greenkeepers. Quite a few of us are familiar with that situation. Last year I wrote 'It would be remiss not to mention the cuisine. All meals were presented beautifully, of exceptional quality and exactly what the hungry golfer was looking for.' Well, this year the chef surpassed himself. Quite honestly, he deserves a Michelin star... or two' Date of stay: October 2021

"Thanks again for arranging our mini golf day this week and as always, we had a wonderful time and blessed with some fine weather. This is our 2nd visit this year and looking forward already to our return in June next year with a bigger compliment of attendees. As you would know, the facilities were very busy but the ladies in the restaurant (thanks especially to Sarah) served everyone very efficiently. The food as always was of a very high quality and very substantial. I cannot recommend too highly the advantages of Lakeside Lodges, we have taken societies to Ufford Park, Dunston Hall and Thorpeness and they have no comparison to our favorite away venue. Happy as always to sing the praises of Lakeside. Thanks again for all the arrangements and looking forward to the next time" Date of stay: September 2021

Simon and I want to say a huge thank you to yourself, Mica and the rest of the team for helping us to have a lovely, memorable wedding day. From the first contact when we were looking for an alternative venue you have been fantastic in answering our never ending questions/ queries and dealing with the ever changing guidelines due to coronavirus. We felt very special on our wedding day and you went above and beyond in helping us and our guests have a really special time together. Everyone has said how great it was and please thank the chef for a fantastic meal and the dessert board was a really lovely gesture. We really appreciate all the effort you all went to in preparing all the spaces to meet the various restrictions and dealing with the registrar. Extra thanks to Mica for all the meetings and support with decorating the tables etc and for ensuring everything went smoothly on the day! We are very much hoping that restrictions ease during next year so that we can have another celebration with all those who couldn’t be with us and would love it to be a lakeside lodge. With many thanks, Mr & Mrs Adams 😃 Date of stay: October 2020

"We have been to this venue on 3 previous occasions but in these difficult time with Covid we just wanted to say a big thank you to all the staff at Lakeside for their service and attention. This was a safe and secure venue, the accommodation was superb with great social distancing, the food (both quality and choice) could not be faulted and even with extremes of weather the course was in good condition and a test for golfers of every ability. Thanks to the green keepers for their hard work. Especial thanks to Jackie, the events advisor, for keeping us posted during the pandemic and for making everything run smoothly. We have already booked for next year. Would highly recommend." Date of stay: September 2020

"The three of us ventured out to Pidley to try out the new menu at Lakeside Lodge and we were not disappointed. The service and timing of the meals were spot on and the food was amazing. We had crispy duck salad and garlic and chilli prawns to start, followed by lasagne, chilli con carne and the amazing smokey platter and luckily had room to finish off with cheesecake and Eton mess. All of which were absolutely delicious! Everything being washed down by a couple of bottles of wine, made for a thoroughly enjoyable evening and it was definitely worth the trip out of town for top class food. Well done Lakeside, new menu is a real hit with us and we can’t wait to return soon!" Date of stay: September 2020

"We held an outside function at Lakeside for our staff. We used the courtyard which was a great location for us. We could maintain social distance and had our own toilets to use. We opted for a BBQ and welcome drinks, both were served with consideration to Covid guidelines. All through the booking process the staff were very concious about ensuring the function was safe for us and their staff. The food was tasty with generous portions." Date of stay: September 2020
