Great food, great service, great atmosphere. Decently priced wide menu with a variety of pizzas and pasta. Ate here for an evening meal - would go back!

Had a delicious meal at Dodds while we were on holiday in Ambleside. Husband had pasta and I had slow cooked lamb & gnocchi. We ended with a shared tiramisu and coffee.
We turned up about 6:20pm and were seated straight away. The service was prompt and friendly. Would definitely recommend and will return next time we're in Ambleside.

A very busy place, constant queue at the door. No bookings - walk ins only. We were greeted and told to wait at the bar. Seated quite quickly. Ordered the croquettes and soup of the day for starters, both were good but croquettes were quite cold. For mains, we ordered the rib eye steak with pepper sauce and chips, the chips were disappointing. The steak was nice though. I had the belly pork, that was very very nice indeed. Would recommend this place, just be patient waiting for a table because the food is worth it. The service is good but nothing above and beyond, they are very busy people.

Visited here on a Sunday night which was a bit quieter than the other weekend nights when the restaurant is very busy.

The food was enjoyable and we didn't have to wait too long for it to arrive. The atmosphere is good.

Wine prices slightly more than the other restaurants we visited. Paid £30. Service charge is included in the bill which we asked to be taken off. The reason for this was we were served by a very miserable looking waitress who made us feel like we were an inconvenience! This is a shame as the other members of staff were doing a good job.
