My husband, daughter and I stopped at the Dotterel inn for a bite of lunch. My husband had the steak pie, daughter had sausages, mash, peas and gravy and I had the gammon steak. They were all home made, huge and tasted amazing. The price was very reasonable too - £32 for lunch including two pints and a fruit shoot.... More

Went with friends for sunday lunch. Good home cooked food. Very tasty. I had small portion (which was big enough for me). Lovely big Yorkshire puddings. We were all too full for dessert. Nice day out.

Excellent roast dinner here last Sunday. Quality,well cooked & presented food at a very reasonable price. Get there in good time or you'll find it full. Serves 12 noon till 8pm so there's plenty of time.

We thought we would go out for Sunday lunch , never been in this pub before but a warm welcome we did not have , the bar man couldn't even crack a smile . We just got told to sit anywhere . However the food was really tasty and good portion size , at least the waitresses were friendly

We were staying on Reighton Sands holiday park and I became poorly from something they had given me so we ventured out and what a wonderful little place this is. Dog friendly, fantastic home made burgers and food and much better quality and prices than the campsite. We will be returning before we go back home. Brilliant place.

We needed a quick lunch on our way home from holiday and called in at the Dotterel. The food was very good, served quickly and a good price. The pub itself was very quiet (midweek lunch time) so no atmosphere, but maybe different in the evening. It had obviously been refurbished recently and was nice and tidy. The toilets were... More
