Goof food. Not so good service!

Our order was messed up and a steak was given medium instead of medium rare. In which we where asked. 'Well you Havnt touched it... read more

Dined here on the 2-4-1 grill menu, we both opted for the sirloin steak Medium rare, both of which we're cooked to perfection ( it's hard to get a good steak round here being a ex chef from the city and fussy!), steaks came with new potatoes at our choice and salad which was nicely dressed. We went with the... More

This is the second time that we have eaten at the Dovedale. The food is good and on both occasions we could not fault the quality, quantity and presentation. Unfortunately the service has not improved since the first visit a last year. On arrival we approached the bar, ordered and received drinks and found a table to sit at. We... More

First time visit for four of us on a Saturday evening. Not sure what to expect as had differing reports from friends and family but hey everyone has different tastes so thought wed give it a go. Very attentive staff on entry settled with a pre dinner drink and a browse at the menus. Great choices and a specials menu... More

Had a lovely afternoon tea - to be truthful I've done the circuit including Harrods ( at nearly £80 a throw for 2 I may add). Simply described the dovedale was lovely . Everything fresh and presented to perfection - and at £8 a go I'll be back for sure !

My husband and I popped in on the spur of the moment for afternoon tea. It was 2 people for £16, well worth it. A lovely display of sandwiches, jam & cream scones and cakes. Would definitely recommend. Only reason didn't score a 5 was because unfortunately the waitress never raised 1 smile, very grumpy!
