I’m not sure if we hit a bad day but service was not good and very disjointed. I cannot blame the man who did most of the service but he was running around looking after far too many tables. I had to go to the bar for drinks in the middle of my meal and waited 15 minutes for the bill. Food was of a good standard but beef over cooked.

The service was generally excellent but we had an extended wait for our pud with our dirty plates from our main course still on the table. We will certainly return & also recommend to others. Thank you very much.

We've been dozens of times to the Dawnay over many years and generally been very satisfied and the meal we had on Saturday(22nd) was as good as anything we've ever experienced in the past.Full marks for quality of food,service and friendliness.

Food, drink and location excellent, staff weren't overly helpful and lady on the phone was a little rude but would recommend to all.

We dined on a midweek evening, so the restaurant was quite quiet and lacked a little bit of the buzz that we'd enjoyed on previous weekend lunchtime visits. Still great, though, but lacking a little atmosphere.
