My Wife, Daughter, Son in Law and his parents went to Dobsons on Sat 30th June to celebrate our Daughter and Son in Laws 1st Wedding Anniversary. We had their Wedding Breakfast at Linden hall last year and it was 1st Class and as part of the couples over night accommodation they had an evening meal at Dobsons and they were so impressed they wanted the 6 of us to go last night. I must say most of us were really disappointed.
My daughter and my wife's lamb dishes were way over cooked and was no where near the pink you should expect of lamb. My wife's Potato Duphinouse was grey as if it had been left standing for some time My son in laws rare steak was medium at best and my Pan Seared Cod had skin that was soggy, it was accompanied with an orange coloured jus which had no taste what so ever and a tiny circle of a very dried up potato dish (I think!)
The Brownie for desert was more like a piece of chocolate cake and didn't have that glorious oozing of sauce that a proper Brownie should have. My white chocolate bread an butter pudding had been no where near white chocolate although I must say that what it was was good but I love white chocolate and there was none.
I think for £36 per person it was way way over priced and if it was in the £20 - £25 area I would not have been so critical but for this price and expect a lot higher standard.
