    Had a lovely evening meal at Spikes Restaurant with some friends I used to work with. The service and food was perfect. We sat in the conservatory area which is lovely. I’ve been to Spikes many times and always had good service and good quality meals.

    We had dinner for 5, food and drink was good but one of our party had fish and chips was a bit to much batter and was a bit soft. But overall experience was positive. We will return in the near future. Thank to everyone who works there.

    When we arrived the staff were abrupt as we were 10 minutes early and said they weren’t ready! So we sat outside on a dirty table. We ordered when we go out inside table and the drinks took a while to come. The food arrived and the pasta had to be returned as not cooked properly. I took the chicken off and put on salad and waited over 20 minutes for another (everyone had finished by then) the pasta was no better and plain with just passata sauce. They could have given more chicken!!! Came to pay and said are you really charging for the pasta dish so they agreed to take the pasta off, but I had to pay for the chicken and salad. Staff are very abrupt and not friendly. It is a waste to provide mayonnaise in plastic pots which then get thrown away or certainly contents do. Disappointed.

    We love Spikes normally but on Sunday the service was very poor and some food was cold, mainly the chips. We think there must have been problems at the restaurant. hopefully this was a once off and next time we visit the service and food will be wonderful as it has been in the past.

    As usual we had a lovely lunch I had prawn and salmon salad which was lovely. The only downside was the sticky toffee pudding my stepmum had its her favourite and always chooses it but this time it was hard at the bottom. That wasvthe only problem

    As always service was amazing we ordered fish and chips, the young girl came and said as the fish was fresh in it might be a 15 minute wait, definitely worth it a huge portion of perfectly cook fish that fell apart in a very light batter . Beautiful only downfall we were to full to have a desert.

    Roast dinners were superb. Shepherds pie was not hot enough. Flat white coffee was good. Hot chocolate drinks were not hot enough, and no extras were available eg, cream or marshmallows. Puddings were v v slow, order was forgotten. Sticky toffee pudding was dry. Service was not proactive, clearing other tables before noticing that we had long finished eating. Atmosphere and decor and comfort and noise level were all enjoyable. I am a regular customer and I love the Dudsbury, leaving this review as I want it to be really good there.

    Waited a while to be seated. Service was slow. I ordered fish pie from the main menu. Asked what fish it consisted of. Chef said lots of different fish, mussels and squid. I had the most miniscule portion with a little white fish only. Not worth the £13.95 I paid for it. Had to have a dessert to fill up. I would like to come again, but try something different and hope there is enough on the plate for the money.

    Ordered lamb shepherd's pie from menu and was brought a plate of mince . The menu description said it was lamb mince topped with mashed potato, not a potato in sight when it arrived.! On enquiry with the waiter I was assured this was shepherd's pie. I have made hundreds of shepherd's pies in my 80 years and have never had one without a potato topping, generally browned in the oven on top or put under the grill. To make matters worse the waiters all insisted this was shepherd's pie and on consulting the chef, who never came out to see me, I was told the mashed potato was mixed in with the mince. This is not shepherd's pie, not even the deconstructed ones which still have the potato separate. When I showed one of the waitresses a picture of shepherd's pie she said in a very supercilious tone that the chef certainly knew how to make a shepherd's pie but he clearly did not . If he wanted to change the way it was made , the menu should have said that it was not the usual method. I wouldn't have had it then . I offered to accept it if some chips were served with it but this was completely ignored. The dish was then taken away and after a long wait I was offered an alternative. Note to staff - in this situation produce the alternative quickly! I was kept waiting so long that my friend had eaten her meal and her pudding before I got my meal. It was a perfectly good lasagne obviously not made from scratch while I waited. Luckily, the chef stuck to the traditional recipe this time and did not decide to cut up the pasta into small pieces and stir it into the mince!
