Just returned from Sunday dinner at The Old Weighing Room and was stunned by the excellent service and food offered. From the moment we arrived we were looked after by the manager who greeted us and the waiting staff who were attentive without being overly fussed while your eating. We sat outside on the terrace where we were served for a bottle of wine as we had arrived slightly early. We were then shown to our table where there was two mini loaves of bread still in their tins provided on the table, still warm from the oven, something I had never seen before. Another nice touch was iced water provided on all tables. I had Haddock and my wife opted for the Ham Hock terrine, we both cleared our plates and awaited our mains eagerly. I'd gone for the Sirloin of Beef with, Yorkshire Pudding, roast potatoes and seasonal veg, my wife went for the Lamb. When the portions came out I was stunned how big they were. Far too often restaurants of quality fail to provide a decent portion for Sunday dinner but the plates (four slices of thick cut Beef) were full. My wife commented that the Lamb was melt in the mouth. For dessert I had the Cheese board and my wife had the Strawberry and Champagne Summer Pudding with Pink Champagne sorbet. Now I admit I couldn't finish my Cheese. Two courses of such quality had meant I'd cleared my plate and when a board of cheese was placed in front of me, I knew despite my good intentions, that I would never get through it.
We spent just over £60 for 3 courses and a bottle of wine which i found more than reasonable considering the quality and service we received.
I'd highly recommend anybody giving this place a try as along with The Rum Rooms in the town centre, it is a step above for eating in the central Doncaster area. We will be back!
