Having been a regular customer for years I have been shocked by the decline in my last few visits. The menu is uninspiring, on this occasion there had been a funeral booking accepted and there were so many people we literally could not here each other speak at our table. We were then offered a reserved table in the bar area which we accepted. Which we had to ask to be cleaned as it was sticky and dirty despite having the reserved sign on it. The staff do not seem at all happy in their work and were either inattentive or quite frankly nonchalant in their manners. Needless to say that the lunch was utterly disappointing.

Table 15 mins late no one kept us up to dare with what was happening. Initially service was poor but then got better. Need to have more flexibility for children I asked for roast beef and mashed potato and was told I couldn’t have it !

Such a lovely place to celebrate any special occasion. The staff are very welcoming, warm, attentive and friendly. The food is out of this world!! Including vegetarian and vegan options. We had some fussy eaters in the party, but Dog & Doublet were understanding and went to great lenghts to accommodate everyone. Thank you! Will definitely be back!

Unfortunately my feedback is really quite mixed. Upon arrival it was evident how busy the restaurant was. It appeared when we arrived at 9:20 that there were 2 waiting on staff serving and taking all the breakfast orders. It took a long time for them to take our order. I eventually asked them if we could order our breakfast. We had to get our own milk from other tables and butter as there just wasn’t enough waiting on staff. Eventually what looked like a supervisor arrived. He really looked as though he didn’t want to be there. The other two staff also looked a bit annoyed. The food arrived however and the food was fantastic. Which made up for it. I would have been really disappointed if the food wasn’t any good as we had made the trip out for father’s day. I’ve been to the dog and doublet many times and was surprised by the service this time. Kelly

Lovely meal , nice setting but not sure I should be having to ask for condiments for roast beef dinners such as pepper , mustard etc , shouldn’t they have asked if we would of liked some, as it is usually the norm every where else but it was a little busy .

The main menu did not disappoint. Three out of 4 guests thoroughly enjoyed their meals. However, the vegetarian chorizo and red Pepper sausages were not good, they were dry and somewhat burnt in places. I had hoped they would be homemade. Staff were lovely if a little hard pushed to be prompt as it was so busy on father's day.

Although the afternoon tea was lovely, the service was a bit lacking. We asked to move tables but were told no as they were all booked (it was obvious they weren't as they were still empty when we left). We weren't offered a choice of teas even though there was a list on the table & had to try & attract the waitress's attention several times as we were never offered a top- up or asked if everything was OK. She seemed a bit preoccupied with a couple (who I presumed she knew) & couldn't do enough for. I felt like we were a nuisance everything time we asked for anything! The lads behind the bar were great though & seemed happy to help even thiugh thry were busy serving. I rarely complain & have had afternoon teas in the Moathouse & The Red Lion at Bradley amongst others & the service has been brilliant. Maybe the waitress was having an off day but a smile would have been nice!

The Gentlemen’s afternoon tea was lovely! Beautifully cooked and presented. Would have like to have been able to choose the 3rds we were sampling as all were blonde ales but they were still really nice.

We often visit for meals and the service this time was by far the worst. We had booked a table for 7 people and when we were told where our table was it was only set for 6. So I asked the assistant manager and he dragged another chair across and said another place setting would arrive. Ten minutes later we still hadn’t had menus to read or an additional place setting so I went and asked for them. On ordering we asked for two side dishes to be served as starters, one arrived with the rest of the starters the other arrived after the majority had finished eating and was cold. The main course arrived and was lovely however after we all had finished I heard a waitress say to a colleague to start clearing our table which never happened and everything took so long that I went to the desk and asked for the bill rather than stopping for desserts and coffee. All in all an early Fathers Day meal was ruined by the service in the restaurant and it will be a long time before we visit again.

We love coming to the Dog and Doublet and always have a great meal every time we visit yesterday being no exception. The grazing boards are brilliant value, we ordered two and shared them. We were also very early for our booking but the lovely waitress said it was no problem and we were seated straight away. Love the fact you can book a table online. We will be back again soon.

Nice and polite greeting at the bar , informative about where we got to be seated. Food was excellent and very well presented. Our only problem was it felt we were a little rushed between finishing our starters and main course being served . We felt that we weren’t quite ready and the meals that were order were cooling before we were ready .

Enjoyed an evening out to celebrate a family occasion, the welcome and service again being warm and friendly. Choose to order from the 'Steak' theme menu and wasn't disappointed, meal was delicious and very good value for money. Thanks to all the D&D staff.

Took ages for the drinks to come, fries were cold but didn’t bother asking to take them back as it would of taken an ice age for them to be brought back out, waitress passed a plate without telling my girlfriend that the plate had a temperature like a volcano, also the restaurant was empty but they sat us next to a couple basically on the same table up a corner! Won’t be coming back

Have always enjoyed meals at Dog and Doublet, especially my Mothers Day afternoon tea treat which was excellent. On this occasion I chose fish pie which unfortunately was not great. Didn't look very nice and had no cheese taste in the grey looking mash. Both friends chose gammon which looked lovely and both enjoyed. Just wish I had chosen fish and chips instead which looked amazing on customer plates. Will do next time.
