“Can't ask for more”
Reviewed March 16, 2013

This is a really nice place with friendly and efficient staff, good food and great value. It is not stylish or pretentious, but comfortable & welcoming. Where else do they ask if you want a tot of Baileys in your milky coffee?

“Average Experience”
Reviewed March 2, 2013

Not quite sure why people rave about this place, it seems to be suck in the past. I felt quite uncomfortable surrounded by news articles displaying past plaudits and awards and yet they seem, firstly not to have won anything recently and secondly content to rest on these long shrivelled laurels.
We ordered bacon butties (which were fine) and coffee I was taken aback that the coffee was instant another reminder of the past.
We left as quickly as we could happy to be out of there until we realised we had forgotten to pay and had to return.

Thank you for taking the time to write your review, also for returning to pay. We take all comments on board, As for resting on our laurels, you are entitled to your opinion, the majority of our customers are regular clients. There's a choice of coffee available so I fail to agree on that score. We are shortly to undergo our annual re-fit after a long winter.So there are a few matters / items need attention. In Mablethorpe we are very restricted on pricing, we feel we give as good as it's possible to give in the circumstances. Hope to see you again, please make yourself known so I can thank you personally for making the effort to review and for being so honest. Dave

“Yet to find better”
Reviewed February 14, 2013

We purchased a static van at Chapel point last year when we settled in our first trip out for a meal was to Daves. We both used to go years since, and went to see if it was as good as we remembered. We wern"t dissapointed.still as good as ever. Food and staff and surroundings excellent. Dave even found time for a chat, and remembered us from all those years ago Just waiting for March for season to open and lunch at Daves All the best.

We REALLY appreciate you taking time to review us. I am so pleased you returned after a previous visit. We try very hard to maintain standards, the current overhead costs make it extremely difficult to keep prices reasonable. My daughters and I spend much time ensuring quality is paramount when buying. Our suppliers know we only have the best, long established, tried & trusted. Good luck in your new caravan. Dave
