Food was exceptional - enjoyed by all of us. Good/friendly service too. Thank you.
Very enjoyable experience, thank you for providing a mooring
Great overall. We really enjoyed the evening. Would be nice to have a few vegetables Included with the main course.
Thank you. We had a lovely meal which we and our visitors thoroughly enjoyed.
Such a lovely place to eat. We are so lucky it is right on our doorstep. Kerry and her team are wonderful. Thoroughly recommend this place!
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
Such lovely friendly staff, a stunning setting on the outside terrace, beautiful decor inside. Sunday lunch was to die for! I would highly recommend this outstanding establishment!
First time dining outside on the terrace on a beautiful day.
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.
Excellent service as always, delicious Sunday roast, would highly recommend
The best roast beef I’ve ever had!
Excellent food in lovely surroundings always reliable . Friendly staff well trained and efficient. Sunday lunch always good value .dogs are also very welcome in the bar .
As ever you never fail to offer excellent food without fuss but with friendly service.
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.
A delightful venue staffed by an efficient and welcoming team..unhurried sensitive service. Helpful information giving
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.
A lovely lunch... super setting and very friendly staff.
Best steak my husband had had for awhile. Never had a bad meal here
It was a thoroughly enjoyable evening, food and service were excellent.We appreciated the fact that we were never made to feel rushed or anyone needed to go home.
We wish the restaurant was closer to where we live.We have always enjoyed our visits
Great lunch and service - as always
