About The Dawnay Arms
The Dawnay Arms, built in 1779 is situated in the picturesque village of Newton on Ouse,at the gates to Beningbrough Hall. With a large garden to the rear, which stretches down to the river.
Great food, the Sunday Lunch set menu is excellent value at three courses for £22. Very prompt service.
The menu was extensive (not expensive), plenty to choose from for all tastes, standard menu ( not so STD) specials board, Valentine's menu and an early bird which we ended up going for because of the choice, no skimping on portion sizes, it was so tasty and brilliant value for money, service was at a nice pace, relaxed atmosphere and the staff were really friendly. Woul defo recommend and will be going back !
The food was lovely although some parsnips wouldn't go amiss with the roast! Portions of meat not very big, only one slice of beef. Lovely ambience just wish service had been a bit slower, three courses within an hour! Didn't really get a break at all in between before next course was with us even though did ask for a break before dessert. Shame as would have liked to stretch meal out a bit more.
Lovely steak night at The Dawnay Arms tonight. Great value and quality.
Wonderful food and experience all round - the team were really on top, top form with great dishes beautifully cooked - many thanks!
Lovely meal ( as usual ) and great service. Many thanks
Excellent meal to celebrate our anniversary. Cheesecake desert was superb.
Well. I wasn't present, unfortunately but the family were most enthusiastic about the food and the occasion. Richard enjoyed himself so much he spent an inordinate amount of time over his food since he was so busy watching everything that was going on. The fare was so substantial with my food on top that no one had any room for anything else for the rest of the day and the beef and desserts were especially commended - the best beef like steak you have ever served!
Very friendly to all including disabled. Love the fire. Will be back soon! Barbara Twigg
An absolutely fantastic Christmas lunch. The food was superb and the service was lovely. Thank you to the whole team. We all loved everything and it was the centrepiece for a lovely Christmas Day.
A most wonderful Christmas Day lunch. The food was outstanding, the service excellent and a very festive atmosphere. The lobster cocktail, with the Bloody Mary sorbet was exceptional.
Lovely Sunday roast and very friendly staff.
Fabulous lunch. Great service and food... definitely recommend
Had our work Christmas Lunch here for 40 people. Had the Christmas Party Menu and couldn't fault it. Brilliant afternoon
Great food which is always nicely presented.
Another fantastic Sunday lunch in a warm and convivial atmosphere. Easy to book and made very welcome. Excellent beer and food completes the package.
Excellent birthday Sunday lunch. Only comment would be one of the waitresses could smile a little more😀
Lovely pub, friendly staff, great tasting food, will always return when we visit York.
Hi, We chose this venue to celebrate my birthday and it turned out a good choice to make. We have been here before so we knew what to expect. Good atmosphere, good service and most of all good food. A bit pricey but you do expect to pay extra for a good experience.
Always very enjoyable, Very friendly atmosphere & great food
An excellant menu and wonderful evening.
Excellent game night.The 5 courses were excellent,attentive service and good wine. The final course was very rich and would have benefited from the addition of a few raspberries to balance the sweetness.
Great food and very reasonably priced. Not many places as goos as this in the York area. Will certainly be back.
