    Having booked for the Sunday Brunch 10:45 from a marketing email that came from the Earl we decided to try the brunch to our usual Sunday location.. the hotel reception and area was clean and exceptional, always fantastic deco style and was bright.. we was circa 15 mins eat so took a seat in reception.. we was not approached or asked if we wanted anything.. when our booking time came we went to the restaurant and was asked if we have booked and I confirmed 10:45am.. and was shown directly to our table having been acknowledged by a member of staff who said good morning. We was asked if we would like a drink before the food and the waitress was attentive and polite. She took the drinks order and then came back to take the food order.. the food arrived promptly and was excellent but a few items missing from mine.. eg Black pudding.. however all was excellent and the drinks eg coffee and mimosa was good.. However during our food the team in the restaurant was setting up the covers for lunch and was quite noisy eg plate and cutlery clanking etc .. once finished the brunch the waitress came over to remove our plates etc but dashed off and didn’t ask if we would like anything else .. as we would have had another coffee but we decided to pay the bill and go.. Overall the Earl is a fantastic place but batting below par to what it could be.. would we eat brunch there again yes but needs the atmosphere looking at ., we have booked for Mother’s Day so hopefully all good.. however a little disappointed as the table we originally asked for has now been allocated to a member of the owners family.. this isn’t an issue but if we hadn’t asked to make sure our table was as asked for we would have been pretty disappointed on the day.. however we have now an adjacent table that is ok ..

    Our Valentine’s Day meal at the Earl of Doncaster was amazing. We were greeted on arrival and shown to our table. The waiter’s service we received was lovely he was very tentative and took the greatest of care of our needs. We look forward to going again in the near future.

    Vegetables were extremely hard with he ability to cut through them with a knife even hard. Asked for well done beef but it cam out medium. Stuffing balls were definitely NOT meat free although upon asking were told "the bag says they are" you are an hotel that is purchasing frozen stuffing balls, that is ridiculous if your chef cannot make his own vegetarian sage and onion plain stuffing balls every Sunday. Buy a.box mix butter and hot water bake if there is no time. Poor pudding menu not alot of choice. Staff did not come back to table once food was placed down to see if everything was ok we had to call them over. There were only 4 tables with customers on so definitely not busy for them to come and ask.

    Had the Classic and Savoury Afternoon teas for 4 people to celebrate a birthday. Great deal with the birthday person getting theirs free. The food on both selections was tasty and was more than enough to feed 4. Downside was the time it took to receive our food, despite being the only people in the restaurant. Would have liked fresh pots of tea & coffee automatically when the food arrived. The setting was amazing and the staff very pleasant & friendly. Would definitely recommend and will be back in the future.

    There was a time when we were reluctant to dine at the Earl of Doncaster Hotel, as the quality at their Cafe Bar Concerto was not good. I'm delighted to say that experiences there over the past couple of years have been much better. This meal was served in a timely fashion and was very tasty. The menu could be a little more imaginative, but what they produced on this occasion was very good. The service was very friendly and efficient.

    Lovely setting in The Earl of Doncaster Hotel. Art Deco style. Dined early with a friend prior to an evening event. The Restaurant was incredibly quiet at 5-6pm. Good attentive service, very reasonably priced and the food (Trio of Sausages and Steak Pie) were both plentiful, tasty and well presented. Would be keen to return to try the afternoon tea, as good reviews given.

    The food was very tasty,very appealing and excellently presented. Portion sizes a little over generous for me. Service was suitably attentive yet giving us privacy to enjoy our dinner and drinks. The ambience of the art deco decor with gentle popular music from soul to contemporary pop was enjoyable. A little noisy at times from another table but nothing offensive or loud. Tables are well spaced to allow comfort of dining without too much disruption from other diners. Would recommend for couples business or small group parties. Would come again.

    Group of 12 males were in the bar area and extremely noisy, unfortunately this echoed around the fairly quiet restaurant and made it an i unenjoyable experience. Even listening to the waiter was difficult and you could barely hear the music. Temperature was very cold, ordered coffee to heat myself up after eating dinner and luckily had a cardigan. Disappointed as surroundings were lovely and food good

    Food was ok, service wasn’t great, we were ignored on arrival by two young members of staff, who both walked away without acknowledging us. We were seated but not given all menus, no drink menus were given. After finishing dinner we asked for another drink and dessert menu, our server finished clearing the plates and said he would get them, after 10 mins and no sight of him we had to ask another server. It was our first visit and expected great things but the level of customer service wasn’t great and desserts were average for the price and not homemade.

    Lovely setting, service was friendly and personable. My message I sent the day before about it being my mums bday was acknowledge by a surprise robot coming out with a happy birthday pudding and happy bday song. This is without me asking for it. It was so special. We had a child with us who enjoyed his food also.

    Had 2 classic afternoon tea and 1 Childrens afternoon tea and they were amazing! The children’s was a perfect amount for my daughter and there wasn’t a thing on it that she didn’t like. The classic afternoon teas looked and tasted fantastic! A nice selection of sandwiches and beautiful cakes. There were only a couple more tables in so it was very quiet and ambient. Would definitely recommend and would return in the future
