My Wife and I celebrated our 57th Wedding Anniversary with a Champagne Breakfast and we were not disappointed. The whole meal was very enjoyable. The service good, with pleasant waiters.

Despite making a mess of my booking (I booked for the wrong day), they were able to squeeze us in on an obviously busy night for which I am thankful. The food was wonderfully cooked and presented with a variety of quality fresh ingredients. There were some excitingly different presentations. Kate, our server was pleasant and attentive despite it being... More

Situated upstairs at Morley Hayes Golf Club, above a very, very busy bar food restaurant, the Dovecote restaurant is more formal. The bar area is quite smaĺl and in between the restaurant and the toilets, so not very easy to relax if you are with a group, especially as the staff are constantly in and out to prepare drinks for...

From entering the Dovecote restaurant to leaving the whole experience was superb. The menu was not extensive but had sufficient choice to satisfy most diners. The quality of the food we ordered was excellent, as was the service. All the staff were very welcoming and most helpful. When we are next in the area we will definitely return.

The service was perfect, the surroundings were great and the food was even better. It was such a special treat and we all felt like VIP's. They even gave my mum a helium balloon for... More

Visited for dinner service. All the food was fantastic and we got free extras that we didn't even ask for such as olives, bread basket and greens with the main course which was a pleasant surprise. The highlight for me was the main, I ordered salmon in a white wine sauce and it was delicious. Great value for money, it... More
