After having to wait for our pre-booked table for 10 minutes, the service proved to be good. All the waiters were pleasant and fairly attentive. Overall a lovely experience

This is without doubt the place to go in this part of Derbyshire if you want a special occasion meal. We have celebrated a few big birthdays here as a family and we are always really happy. The food and service are always excellent.

The Dovecote is my favourite place to dine with my partner & it never fails to please. We eat out regularly and have tried all the other local restaurants of similar standards but on all counts, the Dovecote wins hands down. The service is always seamless yet personal, with great attention to detail. The food is always interesting and everything... More

Easy to find with plenty of parking space. Excellent food at reasonable prices. Very tasty starters ( we had a delicious fritto misto ) followed by excellent lamb with vegetable trimmings and all washed down with a wonderful red from Montepulciano. ( there's a very comprehensive wine list too) The Sunday lunch menu is all inclusive and just what you... More

We had a second-sitting reservation and arrived early for refreshments. There was plenty of room and reasonable service in the seating area by the entrance and we enjoyed the sun (yes, sun!) and the view. Towards our reservation time our orders were taken and we all had roasts. A short while later we were seated and the wine was served... More

Once again the Dovecote Restaurant provided first class service and excellent food in delightful surroundings. The only difficulty was making a choice from the menu, there was nothing I wouldn't have enjoyed. A delicious beetroot, stilton and walnut starter, followed by excellent roast beef, Yorkshire pudding with beautifully cooked vegetables and rounded off by a truly delectable ginger baba with...
