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

Having read your comments in relation to the “Do not go unless you want to be sworn at by the restaurant manager” I feel the need to comment. I am astonished and insulted by the comments made by the manager of the Dovedale. The reason for the review was because of the unprofessional and disappointing manner in which a genuine... More

He also shouted to 'return to your table and pay your bill and get out of here'. Food is ok, but not what your expect for the price, £25... More

Went for the BOGOF on Steaks and although the food was ok, the service was far from it, no atmosphere and the waitress suggested that we plonked ourselves down went she took us to our table? Couldn't get a second glass of wine because she never reappeared so we just ate and left. Won't go back.
