First time visiting and really enjoyed everything food was exceptional. Loved the quail would highly recommend. Drinks were slow the only glitch. Thank you to all the staff for making our evening.

We celebrated our Wedding Anniversary on 3 September with a lovely evening meal in the Dovecote Restaurant, following a very warm welcome on our arrival. The food was excellent, well served, well presented and delicious. The waiting staff were very attentive and friendly and we would certainly be coming back here again. A very nice touch with the Morley Hayes... More

We had a really great meal. 3 generations of our family had a really relaxing time. Everyone, including the children really enjoyed it. The service was excellent. One of the family has special needs and he was very well catered for. The quality of the food was excellent.

We booked a table for four adults at Christmas time- as recommended, however the waitress/ greeter ushered us from the tanks, before our coffee and mince pies- as they wanted to set for the next stirring. We had to sit in the foyer near the crafty door to finish our pies! Ruined our meal- we shall never return

We visited last night, originally planned to go to Darley's but they were fully booked. We ended up being very glad this was the case. From start to finish, our meal at the Dovecote was excellent. In particular, the quail and the lamb were very special. The service could not be faulted. We will definitely come back. One small bit... More

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

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
