“Terrible food, service, go to the chippy instead”
Reviewed October 1, 2013 via mobile

We eaten at the dovey on multiple occasions and generally had a good meal. We eat on the Sunday at the end of August and it was one of the worst meals I have had. Sunday dinner, dry cabbage, cold, took 1 hour to come out. The children has lasagne, the hated it. Pudding was ice cream in a plastic tub. They got everyone around us order wrong. They then ran out of Sunday dinner. It's a real shame as we have dally liked coming here before, do bother. I would recommend going to the restaurant at the McDonald resort, it's great . Sort it out dovey inn

“Maybe we were unlucky”
Reviewed September 28, 2013

Ate here during a trip to Aberdovey and the dinner was pretty poor. To be fair on them, we were late eating and many of the best looking options had sold out. Still, for the price not a great effort – my salmon was dry and overcooked with almost inedible kale. My husband's chickenburger filled a hole but not much more.

“Friendly pub”
Reviewed September 26, 2013

Quick visit for a couple of pints of Brains's bitter (I'm an ex Cardiff boy!) and a pub meal (beer battered haddock and chips x2). Lovely staff, great beer and a tasty, freshly cooked piece of fish. A bit of a treat!
