Seating and Table timings.

Depending upon the size of your party you will be seated at the same table or group of tables. 

Lunch time bookings normally need to clear the tables by mid afternoon so we can prepare the tables for the evening service. Should you wish to stay on for drinks you are more than welcome and unless we absolutely have to we will not ask you to move. But will advise you in advance if this is the case.

Due to the size of The Dovetail we are limited in the size of parties we can comfortably accommodate and you are advised to book as early as possible to avoid disappointment.

Late arrivals.

Please advise us as soon as you can if you or any  member or your party is likely to be late. Given the nature of Christmas bookings and the knock on effect to other bookings it is important you let us know as soon as you can.

We will hold your table for 15 minutes from the confirmed time of your booking. If we do not hear from you to amend your booking we reserve the right to release the table for other guests.
