Limited menu and wine list but excellent quality, service with a smile and very good until the puddings, which took a little time. Very good value. Great food shop attached with good quality fresh local produce. Well worth a visit.

We visited on Saturday evening with friends having booked the seven course tasting menu. The food was magnificent, the menu unusual with dishes you would never have ordered but tasted superb on arrival. Excellent value at £25.99 per head with bottles of wine from £16 so all in all very well priced. The tasting menu changes each month. There is... More

We were not overly impressed to be honest. we had a sandwich which was beautifully presented and in a stunning location but found the bread to be dry. we had two sandwiches with a small helping of salad garnish and crisps, a pot of tea and a cake between us which came to just over 21.00. We would go again... More

Enjoyed a delicious meal on last Saturday evening. The restaurant has a very pleasant atmosphere with attentive staff. Would definitely recommend the taste of Doddington menu however we found that having to share the main course from one plate that was covered in gravy a bit odd. Surely a jug of gravy would be more appropriate. Nonetheless a very enjoyable... More

A birthday treat lunch. Excellent staff, lovely seasonal menu choices with many ingredients sourced from the Doddington estate and local suppliers. A wander around the extensive farm shop beforehand adds to the treats to take home. Lovely.

This place goes from strength to strength and the only downside is that it can get busy at peak times. We called in for a light lunch and enjoyed a Lincolnshire Ploughman's and a Quiche Salad. Both arrived quickly and the freshness/quality of the ingredients was evident. Highly recommended

We visited this restaurant to meet up with a friend. Having been severely tempted by the cheeses on offer in the farm shop, I was delighted to see that the cheese board offered many of the same cheeses, so it was no contest. Never have I been served such a feast! The service was immaculate & even though the place... More

We really like Doddington Hall. The Farm Shop is great. The cafe does very good coffee and cakes. The hall is fantastic and well worth visiting. We decided to try the Saturday night tasting menu which gets good reviews. The restaurant is very pleasant with a good atmosphere. It feels a bit special so we waited in eager anticipation for...
