My third visit and our friend's first, so was a little wary about recommending Dainton to them having recommended places before only to be let down. However Dainton did us proud once again with their absolutely fantastic Sunday carvery. Great choice of meats plus a vegetarian option, very generous portions too, and I'm sure I counted about 10 types of... More

I love the title of your review William - can we quote you on that?!

Thankyou so much for taking the time to review us, I'm glad you enjoyed the party and most of the meal. I will bring your comments on the Christmas Pud to Chef, there have been a couple of other comments on that particular dessert so we'll need to re-think the pudding option for next year.

Have been coming here for a few years now and standard is still excellent. Enjoy the way they get you in and then phase you to the food so no massive queues. As per normal the food is excellent. As little or as much as you choose but always good quality and great taste. Keep up the excellent standards

One of the best carveries I've had, and given the two private birthday events taking place, in addition to the regular diners, Dainton had got it spot on. Crispy roast potatoes, wide range of vegetables and a generous helping of... More
