Ate here on a weds night, was very busy so glad we'd booked! Wide variety on menu, I chose pork belly and noodles, husband had classic burger and chips. Service was a little slow with only two waitresses working. Food was ok, husband said burger was lovely but chips not very impressive. My pork was very nice but I wasn't... More

If you want good food and lots of it, you will not be disappointed with Dexters. A good menu with constantly changing specials means you can always have your favourite - the burgers are telhe best I've ever had - or try some seasonal delight.

What a lovely place to eat, food is very high standard for the price point and the service is Unfussy and friendly yet still very professional. Nothing is too much trouble for them. Had a lovely dinner with friends here. Would recommend for a nice informal lunch or fun night out.

went twice last month, prawns were superb the first time. had fish and chips second time , also superbly cooked and crispy batter, should do fillet beef more often, not on menu when we went! I must say I didn't agree with charging a pound a head if you take your own birthday cake when we spent over £200 anyway,... More

We've been coming to Dexters for over a year now but have never got around to writing a review...well simply put it's fabulous! Great food and service, if you are lucky enough to attend one of their music events they never fail to disappoint either.

Service slow, only fish dish was 'off'. Lacking in atmosphere. Expensive for what we ate. Will not be hurrying back, except for the patio area when the sun is shining!
