Had a great lunch at a very reasonable price. Soup and a sandwich but all of the ingredients were top quality. The staff were very polite and friendly.

We were met with a very warm welcome. We hadn't booked but had no trouble getting a table of 2. Dinner for 2 (2 courses) with a couple of soft drinks cost us about £55 which we thought was great value. I had squid and chorizo starter which was very tasty and unusual (served with crispy onions and rocket) and the other half had a warming spicy tomato soup. Mains were delicious and plentiful - I chose the pork fillet with cassoulet and mashed potato and he had the salmon with crushed potatoes and bean stew. Incredibly tasty, generous portions and very attentive and friendly service. We didn't stay for dessert as a party of about 20 showed up (who'd not booked) and they were seated at separate tables across the restaurant. They were shouting over to each other and they clearly had an eye on our table. We felt a bit chased out of the restaurant to be honest and left as it was getting a bit noisy etc. In hindsight the restaurant might have been better to say they couldn't accommodate that many people in one group unplanned (although appreciate they don't want to turn customers away) as i'm sure it affected other diners too. All that said, wonderful food, great value and would go back.

Absolutely fantastic food with beautiful and different combinations of flavours.
Dodd's will be imprinted on my mind hopefully forever as it is where my fiancé proposed to me!

There's a nice atmosphere here, good service, a good choice of meals and we really enjoyed the food.
We visited fairly early (6:30 on a Sunday in December) because you can't book and there were plenty of tables, but it soon started filling up.
We'll certainly go here again.
