Lovely Sunday Lunch, homemade Yorkshire puddings, extra gravy and plenty of meat & Veg, Very polite staff.
Only 2 Car Parking spaces these probably taken by Staff. Large Q-Park car park straight across road with ample parking at a price.
Highly Recommended

Went here last Friday for our society Christmas meal. Food was great and affordable(would recommend the Yorkshire pudding burrito). We had some complication with the booking but the staff were very helpful and it was all resolved quickly and didn't affect the enjoyment of the meal. All the staff are very kind and welcoming.

Was disappointed with The Doctors Orders. Soup of the day was served cold and we had to send it back. Sunday roast was nothing special with only one small slice of pork. Won’t be rushing back.

Me and the BF went for Sunday lunch. I had the beef and he had the pork. We were both extremely happy with our food, it was absolutely delicious! We both had the bread and butter pudding and agreed its the best we've had.

Great location to meet my daughter who has just started at Sheffield University. Very friendly and knowledgeable staff. Hearty, traditional food, well cooked, generous portions. The Doctor's Orders is dog friendly, which was an important consideration for us.

The food was quite expensive for what it was. We felt the choice could have been better accommodating for people who didn't want fried food. Portions of food seemed quite inconsistent, for example, my fish and chips, the portion of fish seemed quite small compared to others, there was also no mushy peas! Overall I feel the food menu could be improved.

Came here for a graduation meal as was close by to the uni and had good reviews.
So disappointing. Rough pub. Sticky carpet and tables. Reheated and over cooked food. Would not come again and would definitely not recommend. Sorry.

Very disappointing.
Chips were sloppy and full of oil
We had to return one meal
To be fair the manager took that off the bill straightaway.
Beer was very good - Little Critters Brewery
Wouldn't eat there again.

Our second visit here for Sunday Lunch with our daughter (uni student) A really fab Sunday roast with all the trimmings. Portions are great, food brill and all staff are really friendly. We didn't feel rushed in any way.
Can't recommend this place enough. A great meal, great service and really reasonably priced. We will be back again on our next visit to Sheff.

Great food as usual, a little blip in the service but still better than a lot of places and it was very busy, so we'll forgive that. The 10% discount for NHS is always a bonus too.

An unfortunate experience. I booked on line & arrived at time arranged - 5:30pm and ordered our meals immediately. We had a theatre reservation at 7:15 pm but at 6:50 we still hadn't received our meals & so had to leave without being fed. Staff were obviously busy and rushing about and did apologise for delay but too late for us to leave and find another restaurant. Would have been better to be told well in advance of the imminent wait to be fed in order for us to go somewhere else. Not keen to return to Doctors Orders thank you.

Friendly faces as soon as we walked in, and despite being quieter than expected, found that the place had a lovely vibe of community and care. If we'd come during peak times I'm certain we'd have been amongst the local pub inhabitants. Our wait for food was long enough to accommodate freshness but quick enough so that we weren't left wondering. I'd definitely book a table again, and if I wanted to come for the beer alone I'd be spoiled for choice. If expletives were allowed, I'd describe how fantastic my microbrew hazelnut stout was. Recommended.
