The Dawnay Arms has become our night out of choice and a place to entertain close friends. Top quality food and a relaxed atmosphere are the keynotes.

Another great experience at this family run, friendly and welcoming gastro-pub. Imaginative cooking without being fussy. Well worth the cycle ride on a damp Sunday!

There was 4 adults and a baby, we went for Sunday lunch, we all had the beef which was perfect, pink with extra gravy, and lovely vegetables and roast potatoes. The sticky toffee with ice cream was also fabulous. We will definitely go back soon.

As usual Kerry, Martel and their staff gave us a wonderful party at the Dawnay. It was a very special evening for us and our 44 guests came from places far and wide. We all agreed that the buffet was superb and the level of service and professionalism would have been hard to beat anywhere. Kerry is always willing to go the extra mile for us and her help in all sorts of ways ie. giving out name badges for our friends as they came in and making sure her staff attended to every empty glass and bottle of wine or water was spot on. Everyone said what a wonderful party it was and how lucky we are to have the Dawnay Arms just at the end of our road.

We came in for steak as it was steak night Wednesday however after perusing the menus we both decided to order from the fixed price menu. We both had 3 courses and the dishes were exceptional and the portion sizes very generous (as it not always the case when ordering from fixed price menus at some other establishments!).Kerry and all the staff very welcoming and professional as usual. We had a lovely evening. Thanks.

An excellent experience once again in Martel and Kerry’s atmospheric gastro-pub. Spoilt for choice on the menu. Great beers on tap, excellent wine list. Friendly and helpful service.
