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.
A very enjoyable family Sunday lunch.
Great welcome, super meal, excellent value. Celebratory birthday dinner for my wife and her sisters
Quiet when we visited. Lovely presented food, but thought portions small for price. Excellent service by the staff, pleasant and attentive.
Wonderful family meal. Food absolutely superb.
We had not previously realised how fabulous is the “back garden”, which fronts the Ouse. What a perfect setting for pre-dinner drinks, prior to enjoying yet another high-quality and yet unpretentious meal.
Everything was just as we wanted it to be, thank you. I was glad we were sitting in the garden, I found the 'music' in the bar too loud and that is my only criticsm.
I think what struck me most this time was your readiness to accommodate extra guests which was made necessary by our uncertainty about staffing and drivers, with only the proviso of giving the table up to the next booking which we managed easily by my cunning plan of asking for Rid's main course to accompany our starters which, again you accommodated with no query.
I think all 32 of us enjoyed that fantastic 3-course meal ! It was truly memorable.
Amazing meal, all courses were fantastic! Will be back to try Sunday Lunch soon
My friend and I came for Sunday lunch, we are both vegetarian and asked what the options were to swap in for the meat for the lunch. There were no options and they offered the Yorkshire puddings and veg which we had, we also had a pudding which was good two. We paid the set price for the 2 courses which given the fact we only had the veg I thought was abit steep! Overall good but definitely need a vegetarian option in this day and age!
Food for adults was decent but nothing special. Child's meal was poor quality.
Stunningly delicious food and warm, friendly service. My friends and I meet here a few times a year as a half-way point between where we live and we are never disappointed. We would recommend it to anyone and everyone.
Super tasty meal for a party of 15, birthday celebration. Very friendly and helpful staff. Highly recommended. This is the 2nd time we have been for a large birthday celebration. Thank you so much. Compliments to the chef.
Great light lunch and super service as normal!
This is our favourite place for Sunday lunch. Lovely food & atmosphere. Always a warm welcome from the owner. Would highly recommend.
Amazing food, friendly service, top class wines. And an absolutely beautiful setting.
Wonderful meal as always. Absolutely never disappoints.
Lovely food. Excellent location and very friendly service (although at times a bit slow but there was a huge party to he fair). Would definitely return. Would be better without music/speakere. Wasn't loud at all but just not necessary either in a quiet country location. Let's hear the birds!! Recommend for a great lunch.
The food was absolutely top class, delicious ! Couldn't compliment the staff, Kerry & Tristan, highly enough for their friendliness and excellent service
Always helpful, always consistently exceptionally good food. The men in the party raved about the pork loin. Thank you
another great meal at the dawnay
