We went to the Dovedale for the New Years Eve meal. All three courses were very well presented. The meal was very tasty. With each steak being cooked as to what was ordered. The atmosphere in the restaurant was a little quite to begin with, but as the night went on it picked up quite a bit. There were plenty... More

My first visit for afternoon tea with family. The outside and inside were lovely, tastefully decorated,nice dining area and lovely building throughout I go all over to try afternoon tea but this is by far the worst for portions sizes,they were only ideal for Alice to take to Wonderland. However the food did taste nice,you couldn't alter anything on the... More

This was our 4th visit in the last 18 months and as before the good was very good. We chose to have 3 courses from the Xmas menu and everyone was impressed with the quality. The service was friendly and efficient and overall it was very good value, especially when compared to many mass produced Xmas menus. I'd recommend trying... More

We arrived to check into the dolphin rooms which is part of this hotel. Upon arrival the gentleman on reception informed us that we had a room within the hotel. So imagine our delight when we entered the room to find it was a 4 poster. Room was clean and large,along with a large and again clean bathroom. Ideal location... More

We went for Afternoon Tea despite hearing bad reviews, we thought we'd check it out for ourselves. When we entered the staff was nowhere to be seen and we were stood in reception for a good 5 minutes before a member of staff appeared. We ordered Afternoon Tea and chose to sit outside as it was a lovely day. Unfortunately... More

Enjoyed, together with a party of about 20 others, a good meal during the 6-9p.m. early evening menu. The Brandy Pate was excellent, although there wasn't much of it. I then had Fillet Steak encrusted with Stilton in a port wine sauce. The steak itself was superb, very well cooked although the Stilton didn't really come through very well. The... More

This was our second family get together although this time was a large party. The food on both occasions was lovely ( we had steak and the chips are amazing) so not sure of negative reviews. The only negative I have is that considering we pre ordered there were several cock ups and think we could have been checked on... More
