Attended a wedding reception here recently. The setting was lovely and the staff had worked hard to ensure the room was nicely set out for the wedding party. The cold buffet was tasty but slightly limited. We enjoyed sandwiches, sausage rolls, coleslaw, potato salad and a selection of cakes. Plenty of choice for drinks but they are not the cheapest!!...

I have eaten here on a number of occasions, it has certainly gone downhill each time, it used to be good. Most recently, my wife and I ate on an evening when the vast majority of other restaurants in Cleethorpes was closed (mondays). Upon arrival, the place was empty and we were greeted with inhospitality, almost as if we were... More

An excellent night out at the Dovedale Restaurant in Cleethorpes for a party of 10. Good food and excellent service was delivered during our visit. Would recommend and revisit the Dovedale anytime.

Organised a birthday party prior to reading the reviews, I was quite sceptical, however we arrived and left to our own devises, yes I did need to go and remind the staff we needed service, however the afternoon tea food was fantastic, and lots if it, and they catered for two different dietary needs, they did need more staff, and...

Had my second stay here on a business trip this week. The 1st time my room was ridiculously small. This latest trip my room was really impressive. It had a 4 poster bed, jacuzzi and nice decoration. Unfortunately the room was incredibly hot so I had to leave the windows open. As a result of the room being located above... More

Went here for a meal on a Monday night and had a very nice evening. The staff were friendly and attentive without being intrusive. The food was nice although the 'side salad' was no more than a garnish; about half a rocket leaf chopped up and coated with something, hence the score. The bar area was a little small and... More

Booked for afternoon tea as recommended by a number of friends. Turned out ot be a freezing cold day so we changed our minds and had a meal instead. The restaurant manager was very accomodating despite the fact that she had the table already beautifully laid for afternoon tea. Service was good without being oppressive. We felt very comfortable and... More
