Sun shining, work over for the week and the icing on the cake was Fish Night at Doddington Hall. My first experience of eating in the restaurant here and it certainly lived up to my expectations The staff were all very friendly and service first class. The food was delicious and we felt able to enjoy the occasion without feeling under pressure to vacate the table. After the meal we had a leisurely walk around some of the external areas we could access. I know it won't be long before I will be back. Thank you to all the staff at Doddington Hall for making this visit so memorable

together with another couple, we arrived at doddington hall, having been recommended by a friend. our table was spotlessly laid up and our waitress, who served us all the evening, soon delivered our requested drinks. the room was ambient and the tables were spaced so that we felt we could talk without fear of intrusion. each of the seven courses was beautifully presented and ranged from olive bread with dips through soup, salmon, lamb etc.and ending with a monumental dessert. real coffee brought a thoroughly pleasant evening to an unhurried close. a not-to-miss dining experience for all in the lincoln area

As a group of ladies of a certain age we booked lunch here to celebrate a birthday. A number of us had visited regularly so knew that it was going to be a pleasant lunch.The ambience is excellent and the food good. We had a starter, main course and then we had brought a token birthday cake which the waitress dutifully brought in fully lit,a chorus of happy birthday from the other patrons was appreciated by the birthday girl.
We were never going to have pudding, but a small slice of cake and a cup of coffee would have been a nice end to our meal.
We were therefore totally non-plussed when the waitress informed us that there would be a £1.50 service charge per person to eat the cake!!!
We can understand that the restaurant is a profit making concern, but they lost the sale of 7 coffees and our goodwill.
It turned out well though, as we didn't want our day spoilt by this, we took our cake and ourselves and ate it amongst the daffodils on the grass by the church!
Local restaurants should note that it is very easy to lose the goodwill of their local customers by being perceived as money grabbing.
