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.

This was our first visit to The Dawnay Arms and we weren’t disappointed! The ambience was fantastic and matched by the outstanding quality across the Sunday lunch set menu. The only slight area for improvement would be that we experienced a big swing in quality and temperament of the waiting staff throughout our meal, depending on who was serving at that moment. Other than this a fantastic experience and we wouldn’t hesitate to return!

Excellent Roast Beef!!! Roast potatoes were a bit disappointing though. We were brought extra veg upon our request very speedily which was much appreciated Nice choice of real ales too.

If I've ever eaten better roast beef, I don't remember it! The Black Sheep was kept perfectly, too. Not cheap... but consisently good food here and the service is great. Our go-to venue for lunch locally.

Despite our living in Aberdeen, we try to visit you on every trip to Yorkshire! Everything good, with our (joint) dessert - cheesecake - outstanding. Many thanks
