Two of our party were in their eighties and had been going to Dobbins for years, this was my first time and I thought it was sensational. The service, the welcome, the food everything was exceptional and to hear that they have gone into liquidation... More

I went to Dobbins last night (Wed 5th Oct) to find it closed. I rang to see if any message was on the phone but it rang out. Having eaten elsewhere (a very disappointing meal) I came home and checked my pc to read Dobbins had closed down! I was very put out as I had only called into Dobbins... More

We've been to Dobbins many times, usually for Sunday lunch but also for dinner on numerous occasions. We kept going back because the service was excellent. The food was superb and the overall dining experience was pretty sensational from the time you stepped in the door to the time you left. I was desperately disappointed today to read that the...

My husband and I got married last week in the office on the canal and we were looking for a place where to have an intimate lunch for the closest friends and the members of our families that were attending the ceremony. We were very lucky to spot Dobbins as we can't stop telling how impressed we were with them.... More

Our concierge recommended this restaurant and we were so happy with his advice. The duck terrine and foie gras was melt in the mouth, the monkfish as main, sublime. My husband had the soup and the chicken, again was so thrilled with the explosion of flavour. Unbeknownst to us, the concierge had told the restaurant it was our first wedding... More

Went there for family gathering at beginning of September. Food was excellent and service was both informal and professional. Waiter recommended duck on the main course which was the best I have ever tasted. Would recommend it to others. We don't go there too often, but it is always excellent.
