8th Feb 2009 - Fab little Belgian bar tucked away in Clerkenwell. All sorts of nice beers to try, shame most of them only come in half pints! Quite easy to get very drunk in here by accident. Excellent food - it can get very busy at lunchtimes so it's a good idea to phone ahead and reserve a table. Try a pint of chips too. (my vote for best chips in the area)

29th Nov 2005 - I wonder whether the Dovetail has come under new management or ownership. The interior has been revamped (all tiled, somewhat resembling the inside of a toilet) and on the whole the place is brighter. One would think they were trying to go 'upmarket', the problem being that they didn't need to. The food and the beer selection used to speak for themselves and the decor and environs, though small, were cosy. No more, it feels cold and sterile. Before the changes Dovetail was a great venue, but its charm is now all but gone for me.

24th Nov 2005 - I have never seen such Scandinavian toilets in London. Very clean. A great place for trying out Belgian beers, including fruity ones. Food fine as long as you go in small groups. The chef can't cope with a large group and getting the food on the table within an hour.

6th Dec 2004 - The beer and chips are very good. However, the staff are a bit snooty and the whole place seems to a bit up it's own arse. I don't mind it too much really, but I'd generally rather be elsewhere.

15th Sep 2004 - Really great belgian bar/pub. v cosy, great selection of beer and food (mussels, 'chips in a pint'). Always seems fairly lively -not really suity type place which makes a change from regular Belgo type places. Definitely worth a visit.
