We visited the Dovecote for a champagne breakfast with friends to celebrate their wedding anniversary. As ever, the quality of the food and the service were of a very high standard, making for a really enjoyable celebration. Particular highlights were the kedgeree and the full English breakfast with top quality local ingredients. A real Saturday morning treat!

We ate at The Dovecote because we were staying in a nearby hotel and wanted somewhere a little fancier than local pubs. Clearly the Dovecote exists to serve the hotel next door, and the decor and general style was a little dated and not very inspiring. However, the service throughout the evening was excellent and we were surprised by just... More

We went as a family of 5 adults and 2 children to celebrate my daughters Birthday but was unable to be booked in before 3 pm. Whilst the food as usual was wonderful we were more than disappointed that the usual pianist and Music had finished by 3.15 pm despite the price which remained the same, clearly I would recommend...

We visited the Dovecote restaurant last night and we were served by Laura who was delightful. It was a fleeting visit for me, I'm arranging my Mum's 80th birthday party there in June and we needed to finalise a few details this weekend. Mum and I both had fish for main course, halibut and wild trout and both were cooked... More

Visited on a Monday night and the restaurant was very quiet, but exactly what we wanted after a long weekend away. From walking in the door every need was attended to. Coats taken, drinks offered in the lounge or we could've gone straight to the table. Olives and canapés served free of charge added a special touch to our welcome... More

Took my wife here for a belated valentines meal as she was working late on the day. Was not disappointed. On arrival we were greeted and sat in the bar area and given menus to look over. Drinks orders were taken by a waiter and brought quickly over to us. A waiter then came back for our food order. After... More

We won a voucher for afternoon tea at Morley Hayes. I had to book it over the phone as the online booking didn't work. We were very impressed by the range of teas on offer. I had the citrus and ginger which was a proper infusion. (I had expected a fruit tea bag!) There were many nice touches, such as... More
