    Portion was too big. We saw customers leaving more than half of their food left on a plate. not good for environment. Cream on the sweet pancake was not proper whipped cream. Dessert arrived before we finished the main course.

    My Old Dutch is a brilliant place, we first visited about 40 years ago!! And were so happy to go back a couple of times over the last couple of years. Always welcoming, always delicious, always fun. Refurbished since our last visit and now even more bright and colourful with beautiful flowers hanging from the ceiling but still the classic blue and white tiles on the walls. Really really worth a visit, always recommended to book or you will have to queue!! Just one tiny criticism was that the mixed salad was a tad salty, but I'm sure they would have changed it if we had mentioned it. Go...... you will love it, and you will be very very full up afterwards!! :)

    We booked a table at 6pm knowing that the last orders were at 7pm. However, before we'd finished the first course (6:30ish) we were asked whether we wanted a pudding. We chose and that was delivered almost before we'd finished the first course. We'd also ordered a bottle of wine (and beers) so didn't want to rush to finish. However, by 6:45 we were one of only two or three tables still eating (one was a birthday party) but were clearly being hassled to finish and go. By 7pm we were the last table but by then almost all the serving staff were wandering past us giving "meaningful" glances and hanging around in groups clearly waiting to be off. It was getting uncomfortable so we left soon after 7pm. (We went for a more leisurely coffee at a pub across the road. It's one thing to say last orders are at 7pm (they were clearly in advance of that) and the message should really be "we close at 7pm". It's a pity we experienced this. We've eaten there before and not had a similar problem. And we enjoy the food (but not under pressure). We're unlikely to eat there again.

    All good but our booking was for 5.45. It would have been good to have been told we'd be chucked out before we were really finished. Kitchen closing time should have bbeen in the confirmation message. Spoiled the evening g.

    2nd time eating here, having recommended to friends I was so glad it lived up to our expectations. Couldn’t manage a sweet pancake so next time I’m just going to opt for a sweet option they look so delicious. Looking forward to eating here again.

    A few hiccups at the start but once we got our food it was quite pleasant, hence the four stars. I'm gluten free and we had read on the website that the pancakes could be gf and df - great. Only starter according to website for gf would be nachos- no problem. Thry had changed recipe for this - yes you can have cheesy nachos but no cheese sauce!!! Plain nachos with the sides it was - no reduction in the price mmm My daughters cheese balls were delicious apparently. Ordered my pancake - the duck one - oh we don't have that one today. OK I will have The old Dutch!!! You can't have the ham on that it's breaded!!! So I went for the seafood - no anchivories or capers for me by choice, so that left tomatoes, cheese, tuna and King prawns yum - or so I thought. Massive crepe appeared - the gf wasn't quite cooked unlike my daughters one. It was a bit sloppy. And the prawns were just placed on top, cold!!! Not even warmed up. Wouldn't be my first choice to go back to as a gf eater and I haven't put it 9n the gf forum I belong to as a place of you must go to.
