“Great Sunday Lunch - no plastic food”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 3 November 2013

I have just reviewed Dimple Well Lodge - and it went under the Bollywood Restaurant review so I thought I should also review on here too. We have had a great relaxing Sunday lunch - there were 5 adults, we ordered the pate and the Dimples Caesar Salad, which came within 5-10 mins of ordering and was extremely fresh right down to the salad. Plenty of pate and fresh bread. Main course we ordered 4 roast Beef and 1 Pork, the meal was not too much yet just enough for the gents at our table. All fresh food and roasted carrots was a lovely change. Yorkshire Puddings were Yorkshire Puddings and not the frozen all the same colour all the same size which can appear on your plate at a lot of your Sunday lunch pub places these days. We asked for extra gravy and nothing was too much trouble. Dessert was a lovely finish to a very pleasant meal. Maybe the menu board could have been a little more professional but this had no reflection on the food itself which was great. Presentation is a bit of a pet hate for me, food presentation and quality was lovely but the menu maybe could have been a little better presented. We did order coffee and had to remind staff after waiting twenty minutes but again nothing was too much trouble and we were not rushed. If I had to ask Marcus and his team to do anything I would personally have liked if maybe we had table water and glasses on the table and maybe dessert forks with dessert as well as spoons, something that seems to be forgotten in a lot of our eating establishments these days. Overall we had a lovely afternoon and the luncheon was excellent value for money whether you wanted one, two or three courses, for price against a lovely setting, atmosphere, service and good fresh food in this price bracket this was excellent value for money. Thank you - I would say with any review good or bad try it for yourself you may be pleasantly surprised. This was a lovely Sunday lunch and would recommend you try it for yourself.

Was lovely setting, unfortunately the staff were a bit all over the place one didn't know what the other was doing, food ok. They need to so a bit more staff training to enable it to run a little better.

Marcus and his team made my wife and I so welcome during our visit for Sunday lunch, the food was fantastic and the service amazing, they really do deserve to succeed since they took it over from Bollywood. The whole experience was great we really enjoyed the meal and the time spent there keep up the good work Marcus you are obviously doing the right thing, we will be back Regards John and Jackie

We have just celebrated our Ruby Wedding Anniversary with nearly 50 guests and the evening was a complete success. The booking of the event, ordering the buffet, decoration of the room and the DJ were faultless. The staff were most welcoming and attentive seeing to our every need. There was ample food, the quality of which was excellent. All our guests were most impressed, some making enquiries for the future. Many thanks to Marcus and his team for an unforgettable evening. A right good Yorkshire do!

We booked into the Dimple Well for a sunday lunch groupon offer, the place is beautiful and quirky, the staff are pleasant and attentive and the ambiance is relaxing. The menu had a nice choice and we can all highly recommend the duck & port pate absolutely delightful, loads of pate and could really have done with more bread there was that much. The main was a typical sunday lunch the plates and food were piping hot and it tasted lovely. Would recommend this lovely place to anyone no problem, keep up the good work.

We had our sons Christening in the function room. The food and service was excellent and we could not have asked for more. There were 6 couples who stayed overnight. We had a great night thanks to Marcus. I would highly recommend dimple well for functions.
