My Wife and together with two friends went to this restaurant on saturday night. This turned out to be a very good experience. On our arrival we were greeted by a receptionist who took our coats and showed us to a reception lounge where we had drinks served to us. We were brought menus and formally greeted by the waiting...

Took my girlfriend here for her Birthday a first time dining at the Dovecote and we were both very impressed with the service from welcoming friendly staff, the food is mouthwatering, full of flavour and went down a treat with a great choice of rose wine from their selection topped off with a cosy and vibrant atmosphere, will definitely return...

My husband and I visited with a friend, having had the restaurant recommended by the B&B we were staying at (Hayeswood Lodge, see separate review). Very good choice! Aperitif drinks were served in the entrance lobby area while we made our menu choices, and some complimentary olives and delicious biscuits arrived. A lovely touch was the brilliant young pianist who... More

Our food order was taken and we were then seated at our table. The starters and main were all gorgeous but the puddings were to die for.... More

I and two friends dined here this evening as we had had good steaks twice before, however this time our meals weren't as good as before, we had pate to start and had asked for two rolls instead of bread and when the pate came it came with one slice of bread, not two rolls as we had asked for...

I have had the privilege of eating in some of the worlds top restaurants, this is most definitely my number 2. My wife and I visited for our anniversary, it having been recommended by a number of people, there are not enough superlatives that could justify the meal we had, I will keep it simple: Service 100% Food 100% Surroundings...

Have enjoyed a fabulous champagne breakfast at what must surely be the Midlands premier restaurant. This was our very first treat here from our very dear friends, and we can't thank them enough for the experience. We have been coming here for many years, mainly for lunches, but have had evening meals too, and over the past ten or more... More

We visited here for an afternoon tea as a treat for my Mum's birthday. From the start we were impressed with how friendly the staff were and when we were shown to our seats we continued to be impressed. There was a choice of 4 or 5 types of tea (we had Ceylon and English breakfast tea which were both... More
