Booking a Champagne Breakfast for a Tuesday seemed decadent but it was SO enjoyable. We were warmly greeted by Ben who had recently returned from nine months of world travel. He and Beth, new to the Dovecote, looked after us really well. The variety of food was pleasing to meat-eaters and vegetarians alike, with several starters and main courses. My... More

The steak had a one... More

Speechless! Me and my family came to Morley Hayes to celebrate two birthdays with a champagne breakfast. We really couldn't have asked for anything more, from the great quality customer service to the exceptional food to the wonderful setting. It was all brilliant! The cards and balloons were an extra special touch. The table was set perfectly just off the... More
