“Warm welcome and large breakfast”
Reviewed 22 December 2013

Following on from a Christmas Party we decided to nip out for a cooked breakfast in nearby Woodhall Spa. Little Dorritts offers a wide variety of breakfasts including a big full English and vegetarian options. There are also meals on offer throughout the day, a specials menu and a bar.

Upon entering we were warmly greeted by the owner. The decor is a little busy and dated but the venue itself is spotlessly clean. The food was hot and the portions were large, and well cooked.

There were some disparities in the food, excellent quality sausages but Tesco's Everything Value orange juice. All in all a very enjoyable meal, with first rate service and at a very reasonable price given the size of the portions.

“Great variety of home cooked food.”
Reviewed 9 December 2013

Food is consistently good and tasty with generous portions and a series of changing specials. Caters for gluten-free and other dietary requirements especially if you call in advance. Highlights include the steak and kidney pudding, vegetable jalfrezi, and the fish pies, and if you can manage a pudding then try the trifle or seasonal crumbles when they're available are delicious and generous.
Christmas Day is always booked up in advance and Little Dorrits will cater for special occasions too with evening openings.
We eat there regularly and are never disappointed.

“Brilliant food and friendly service”
Reviewed 9 September 2013

We decided to try here with no previous knowledge of where to eat in Woodhall Spa.
The lady that served us was very nice and friendly, nothing was too much trouble.
The food was very good, great portions,and cooked very well. Very good value for the food and service. If you are looking for great home cooked food this is the place to be.
We shall be returning.
