First time at the Dovey or Dovedale Towers and what a pleasant visit. Nice lovely old building with great furnishings inside, plenty of options on the taps and great food options. A pint and a burger for £10 Monday to Friday and 2 steaks and 2 beers for £20! Great for a stop off with the other half. We sat... More

The roast beef dinner was amazing. The beef was cooked medium & was very succulent. The portions were massive & reasonably priced. The service was a bit 'iffy' but it was extremely busy due to the Liverpool football match on the tv. Would highly recommend a visit (just be mindful of football match's on screen)

Poor and slow service at the bar ( 2 x wrong drink orders), rude waitress, salad bought out 15 minutes after other hot food ( clearly forgot and with no apology). Also don't order the king prawn salad ( it is 8 small prawns and a bag of salad costing £11). Atmosphere is good and other people enjoyed their Sunday... More

Thank you for your comments. After reviewing your complaint with the shift manager/ kitchen and checking the till read outs it appears the reason for the staggered service times you experienced is because your table chose to order separately within a 5 minute period? During this time another 11 tables placed orders - we were very busy.  The waitress apologises... More

Came here on Wednesday for some after work drinks, stayed later than planned, so decided to get food and was not disappointed. We had the seafood linguini and Thai green curry, it's a nice little touch getting a side bowl for the mussel shells, didn't expect it from a 'gastro pub'. Would definitely come back. Staff are friendly

Been a few times for food and it's a bit like Russian roulette on the quality served. Came in for a quick bite for lunch. Ordered the glazed sausages, chips and a risotto (2 of us eating so sharing). The sausages were tasty but they are essentially frozen cocktail sausages with a glaze brushed on. Not horrible but cheeky charging... More

Hi AuldAlliance2911, Thank you for your comments, we take all reviews seriously and have discussed your opinion of the risotto with the kitchen.  However, with regards to your comments about the 'Sticky Pork Sausages' we pride our selves in only using fresh food from the best local suppliers and would never use 'frozen cocktail sausages'.  In fact, the butcher's chipolata sausages...
