Birthday event - 10am Champagne breakfast in the Dovecote - first rate service by polite and smart staff. Excellent menu selection and always 'the full English.' No sense of being rushed and a quiet atmosphere. Champagne half bottle for two people. Can buy add-ons but not needed. Lovely visit. Thank you to all the staff involved. Price at about £22... More

We decided to try the Dovecote for an impromptu celebration lunch. We had not booked in advance but luckily there was a spare table. As always, the food and service were both excellent and we find the lunchtime menu is very good value for money. The presentation of the food is excellent and the portion sizes are deceptively large, so... More

I love the Dovecote! Finally I have found somewhere where I know that I will receive excellent food and service every time I visit. Always top of the list when deciding on a night out.

We had a 3-course meal in a lovely atmosphere, with live piano music and the food was very exceptional. Service was also good.

I have lost count of how many times I have eaten here, Champagnes Breakfast's, Christmas lunches, or downstairs in Roosters bar for girlie lunches. I really did not think it could get any better but then they introduced 'Afternoon Tea'! So off we went, seven of us last week for my birthday, what an occasion that was. The room was... More

A reception area to have drink whilst choosing your meal with canapés provided. Great choice of food on 'set menu' and cooked and presented beautifully

We've been going to Morley Hayes for all sorts of occasions over many years and we thought they couldn't really do much more (especially after introducing the Champagne Breakfast some time ago) but they have - and what a lovely experience- Afternoon Tea! I went with a friend as a birthday treat on Friday,11th July and thoroughly enjoyed it. Tasty... More
