This stunning bar and restaurant has become something of a Liverpool institution. Set within a building steeped in history on Penny Lane in the city’s Wavertree area, Dovedale Towers has retained all of its old fashioned charm while it has been given a stylish modern update. With an extensive and varied menu of classic pub cuisine and a well stocked drinks cellar, it is no wonder that it has become the beloved local of many Liverpudlians – not to mention the Beatlemaniacs in the area looking to hideout after pinching a street sign!
A firm favourite amongst the numerous bars and restaurants that line Liverpool’s increasingly popular Penny Lane, at Dovedale Towers you will find a range of delicious British pub food alongside some international options. From full English breakfasts to sandwiches, salads and burgers, for breakfast and lunch Dovedale Towers over in Wavertree has got you covered. Some delicious dinner options include quintessentially British options – beer-battered fresh haddock with mushy peas and tartare sauce – as well as some more exotic choices like a Moroccan chicken kebab with toasted pitta bread and scented rice.
Of course no British pub would be complete without a large selection of beers, ales, wines and spirits and Dovedale Towers is no exception. Take advantage of the massive beer garden on a sunny day, or sit inside and bask in the building’s traditional atmosphere. Whether it is for breakfast, lunch, drinks or dinner, with its charming setting Dovedale Towers is a popular choice pulling in a crowd from all over Liverpool to its Wavertree location. Make sure to book a table in advance to avoid disappointment!
My mum had the Beef burger and it was SO tasty (i stole a bite) And I had the scouse pie with chips :) Food was gorgeous, I couldn't manage a dessert (Gutted) Determined to try the sticky toffee pud on our next visit though! Can't fault the place. We were pleasantly surprised and horrified that we hadn't visited this gem sooner. (moved to the area a year ago). Lovely pub grub! Lovely staff!
My family and I visited for mother’s day ;) we have not been for many years! We had a fantastic day the food and service was brilliant! We will be coming back very soon. Thanks Emma x
Great burgers. Decent portion size and served very quickly. We will definitely eat here again soon. Staff polite and helpful . Keep up the good work, Well done!! Many thanks K& G
High quality Christmas Turkey Dinner with veg cooked from fresh, thick slices of turkey breast, and all the trimmings, followed by delicious desserts and a friendly service. Great night catching up with a friend, and good value!
Noone was around to greet us on the door, it was very quiet for a Sunday at lunchtime. Went to bar to tell staff we were there and overheard another table ordering to be told there was a 40 minute wait on food. We were taken to our table which was shoe horned into a small space and I couldn't get my legs under the table! I then went up to check with the staff how long food would take to be told yes around 40 mins. I asked why, is it always this long? To be told it depends how busy it is yeah, but the establishment was extremely quiet and we couldn't understand why the wait. Looked around and food didn't look worth the wait. Sorry, don't know if they had a bad day but we weren't impressed!!
Love the dovedale, really nice atmosphere & great food! Out door area is great in the sun but if it's cold the inside is lovely & cosy. Great for few drinks if not eating too although beer on the more expensive side. Burger & a beer mid -week for £10 makes it a firm favourite. Staff are lovely & really go out of their way too. Accessible for disabled!!
We went here for a Roast Dinner on a Sunday; the roasts were nice apart from my partners lamb being a bit fatty, and the deserts were delicious. Only thing was the tables were really sticky which made them feel unclean and for the amount you are paying, I would have expected table service rather than ordering at the bar. That said, the staff were all very friendly and helpful and I was pleased that they had a vegetarian roast option available.
The exceptional staff make this pub what it is and the food is always of a very good standard with good value for money. We all got the roast dinner and there was plenty to go round. Definitely worth reserving a table on a Sunday as they reserve the roasts for booking customers.
Went for a 2-course Christmas Roast at 2pm last Sunday. Food was excellent but service very slow (took 2.5 hours from ordering to leaving) and communication poor. Had to go back twice to the bar and ask. And got soup spoons for our deserts! But as I said, food quality great.
Booked for Sunday roast. Arrived and advise no roast, no mixed grill, no bread! So made our order of steak, salad and burgers for the kids, as we were leaving then noticed a number of tables being served roast dinners! We specifically booked this restaurant for the roast and while it looked good the food we received was disappointing and we wouldn't return.
