Excellent for couples and romantic celebrations

Food and menu choices were excellent. Staff and hospitality outstanding. The owner Andrew greeted us and sat giving us recommendations on the menu. While there a couple were celebrating an engagement. Plesent atmosphere and supurb food

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...

We eat sunday lunch here 4 or 5 times a year. You simply can't fault it. From the service to the food it's all excellent. On arrival you are shown to a cosy seating area to have your first drink, enjoy some nibbles and peruse the menu. You are then shown to your table when your starter is about to... More
