Very enjoyable. The main courses were delicious. The puddings were slightly disappointing. It’s very good value on the set menu. The atmosphere is relaxed and just special enough for a posh lunch. Overall a very nice experience. We’ll be back!

My partner and I were up North for a few days and found this gorgeous place literally a stones throw from where we were staying. We always go out for meals and this one was up there with some of the best places we have eaten. The food was delicious and fairly well priced. Beautiful location and we will definitely be returning!

Excellent service as always and Staff always very accommodating. Thank you for letting us do our long row to your Dawnay Arms. It was a lovely row and River Ouse was perfect rowing conditions this year. You catered for our 19 members very efficiently to get us back onto water within an hour turnaround.

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!!

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.
