Your garden is the perfect place to enjoy a relaxed sunday afternoon. The cod was lovely, and my husband thought the burger was divine. The staff were really attentive. We'll be back!!

Lovely food and setting, really enjoyed it. Felt like they were a little understaffed at times but worked for us as we enjoyed a casual Sunday lunch

My wife said her beef was superb. In fact the slice resembled steak rather than being carved from a joint. Mine and Alison's calves liver was another triumph since it was cooked to perfection since it was soft as butter - not easy to do with liver. The mushroom soup as my wife pointed out was cooked using homemade beef stock as was the gravy for beef and liver and it shows. Adrienne and Richard both adored the knickerbocker glories and Alison loved the combination of flavours in the creme brule. The coffee was excellent. My only reservation is that your questionnaire requires me to write American: 'flavors' instead of 'flavours'! They run everything else, I don't see why they should run our spelling.

Our waitress was very friendly though not very knowledgeable. Our drinks order was wrong and so was our bill but it was remedied very apologetically. The food was pleasant enough but not outstanding.

A meal at The Dawnay never disappoints, a brilliant summer flavour to the current menu, our choices this time of a) seared tuna and b) crab & salmon to start followed by an outstanding halibut with asparagus for main course we then managed to find space to share an exquisite orange crème brûlée.

Great place to stop off from the North into York. Food was delicious. Service was great. The Olde World feel was very pleasing and we had a relaxing lunch. Food was served in very acceptable time as cooked from fresh and to order. All in all we would definitely visit again. Recommended. Mr C and party 26.5.18.

it is always good to quality and presentation is superb. The staff are pleasant and well trained. Except one young girl who unfortunately seemed to give the appearance that it was really too much trouble for her to look after us. A shame as it let th side down.
