“Excellent”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 2, 2014

Great attention to detail, beautifully furnished, attentive staff, great choice of food and great atmosphere. A bit pricey perhaps but makes a nice treat.

“Excellent - As Always”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 29, 2014

We went to celebrate my birthday on a wet and miserable Wednesday evening. If the weather was awful, the food and service at this top class restuarant more than made up for it. We had not been to the Dovecote for a while but nothing had changed from our last visit: everything was still superb. The service was attentive but unobtrusive, the surroundings lovely and, most importantly of all, the food was delicious. We skipped the starters but the steak and chicken pie mains were extremely tasty and well-cooked. The deserts looked beautiful and had a taste to match. The bill is more pricy than for Roosters downstairs but you would expect this for a fine dining experience. Highly recommended.

“Lovely food and attentive staff”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 18, 2014

I got married here 7 years ago and had only been back once since but glad we did. Food is excellent, not overpriced for quality and presentation and staff are friendly and welcoming. Good wine selection too something for everyone. Would definitely recommend

“Nice place but starting to be overpriced”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed May 8, 2014

Lovely restaurant. Great service but now getting overpriced. I would rather eat in Roosters bar downstairs as better value for money.
