5 Dunkley's Restaurant Reviews
Review by Mick Y (3 July 2011)
I visited Dunkley's yesterday evening for the first time with friends who were celebrating their wedding anniversary. The quality, quantity and range of food offered was outstanding as was the service provided by friendly, helpful staff. We will certainly go again soon.

I took my parents and my family to Dunkley's Restaurant on Saturday and was extremely unimpressed by the food, the décor and the complete lack of service. From the moment we walked in the door I knew we had made a mistake. The staff failed even to offer to take our coats or point out where we could leave them in the cloakroom. We were then ushered into a seating area in the bar and I sat with my 10 year old son looking at a children's menu covered in splattering of food. Our drink order was rushed to our table and we were rapidly ushered there too. Our starters were set out before we hardly had a chance to sit down. The waiting staff then advised us of a lack of fillets steaks to cover our order and changes had to be made. I sat in horror as I watched my father try to get his knife through his chicken cake starter and insisted that he brought it to the staff's attention. My son had changed his order due to the lack of fillet steaks to a mushroom risotto, which I had also chosen. It was heavy and almost inedible; neither of us could finish the meal although my son put on a brave face knowing his grandfather was paying for the meal. By the end of our meal at about 8.45 it became apparent that the members of staff were setting the tables for the next day's service and we were clearly in the way. As we were awaiting a taxi we retired to the bar area but it was clear that the staff were waiting to close the restaurant. We stood in the porch awaiting our taxi and the staff sat anxiously waiting for us to go. It was an extremely disappointing and over priced experience. The staff seemed completely disinterested by our disappointment.

I went there a few weeks ago with my partner. I have eaten at many top restaurants, but have never, ever had a steak as good as the fillet here. Starters are just okay, general menu is small and only a little varied, the décor of the place is dull and gloomy and it is very quiet, but we will definitely go back.

A fantastic meal with great service and I would definitely visit again.

Lovely setting - the train carriage making up part of the restaurant is a nice feature - and the food was, for the most part, pretty decent. However one steak was tasteless and overdone, and staff seemed disinterested when this was pointed out. Overall we felt it overpriced for the standard of fare on offer and would have expected more than a disinterested grunt when pointing out that part of the meal was definitely not up to scratch. Perhaps an off day for them but we haven't returned to find out.
