New Kentish Breakfast Award

Congraluations to the catering team at the Lodge, who have recently been awarded the Visit Kent Breakfast Award. 

The Kent Breakfast accreditation, launched last year by Visit Kent and Produced in Kent, aims to encourage the breakfast makers and suppliers of the county to ensure that at least 60% of the ingredients used are sourced from within Kent.

 Kent Breakfast Award Best Kept Secret Finalists 2013!

We were delighted to get through to the final three hotels in the country for the 'best breakfast' and also the 'best service' in the Best Kept Secret Awards 2013.



New Banqueting Bar

It is now possible to enjoy the pleasures of a pint under the shadow of Bell Harry, as the Lodge has just welcomed the installation of a new banqueting bar in the conference centre.
 New Banqueting Bar
The welcome new addition reflects the change in use of the events space, since its opening in 2001. As well as still hosting a large number of church and commercial conferences, seminars and lectures, the Lodge has become the prime banqueting venue in the City centre in recent years.
Given the level of events business, we feel the bar will enhance our excellent venue and improve guests’ dining experience. In keeping with our aim to use local suppliers, Shepherd Neame have provided all draught beer equipment and of course, we will be stocking their beers. We continue to use Manor Wines based in Bridge for all our wine supply.

New Biscuit Supplier

We are delighted to be working with Bonnie Shortie and are now supplying their delicious 'Produced in Kent' biscuits to our hotel and conference guests.


New Kentish Breakfast

It’s imperative that guests receive the highest standard of food and service during the most important meal of the day, ‘Breakfast’.

At the beginning of April the Cathedral Lodge stopped offering their buffet style English breakfast and began taking individual orders at the table for the Chef to cook to order. Helen Stilwell, who recently joined us as Breakfast Supervisor has been working extremely hard to deliver this improved breakfast standard.

In addition to our hot breakfast, we extended our Continental breakfast offering with an increased focus on Kentish produce, to further drive an enhanced guest experience.
