I just cannot see what the fuss is about...it's a bit like Taylor Swi*t - I really must have missed something, I just don't understand. Food pretty average, not particularly tasty. Cheap eats and big portions. I think this place does what it says on t the tin, serves ribs/burgers chips etc. I probably won't return.

This restaurant has a lovely atmosphere and brilliant food! Although it is quite hard to book as it gets so busy it is totally worth the wait. The price of the food is reasonable for the quantity of food you get!

We visited Dillingers as a family of four (two children, 10 & 4) on 18th July, a Saturday night. I am in the restaurant business, so am generally hypercritical, but overall was very impressed indeed. The restaurant was busy but not absolutely rammed, so the atmosphere was just right. The waiting staff were very friendly and efficient - my only... More

A night out with friends and a first visit to Dillengers. I could not believe the portion sizes, very large plates filled! The staff are friendly, the food good and plentiful and a relaxed atmosphere Would visit again

After reading bad recent reviews when we arrived at Dillinger's we did consider leaving, however, glad we stayed Eight in our party, food lovely, staff good. Prices have gone up but we would definitely come again.

Thank Febbie123
