As a family, we have been attending The Dolls house for little over 20 years as a Christmas treat. Until now this has always been a pleasent experience. However this year we as a group of thirteen have been left very disapointed. First we ordered three bottles of wine, and one came to the table open and a quarter empty.... More

Attended a Christmas meal the other night at the Doll's House. Soup portion was tiny and tasted like the same soup you get in the gateway building - not impressed. Main course of sea-bass had 2 fillets of sea bass which were ok but the fish didn't taste very fresh. (something akin to a pre-packed sea bass fillet that had... More

Nice small restaurant, but with a rather limited menu specially set for Christmas. At first we thought they had given us the wrong one, but not so. The food we chose was of a good quality and very tasty. The crackers helped add to the festive feel. Also, the gifts inside were of a very good quality!

My review is very similar to some of the other reviews on here regarding the service at the dolls house restaurant. Therefore being as some of these reviews were made a few weeks ago one would of thought the problems would of been addressed but apparently not. It would also appear that the bad service started at around the same... More

Lovely meal for two. We had booked in advance and were served promptly. The staff were pleasant and not pushy, giving us enough space and time to enjoy the food. Our starters were very tasty and served at the right temperature. The fish course for main was very well cooked and well balanced. It was a very positive and enjoyable... More
