We often come to the Dove and have a beer, a burger or some chips. The lamb I have tried was superb. Nice to be on the terrace, upper floor! Service ok. Really fresh Frontier beer. Interiors are cosy. Prices ok but not cheap.

First of all this place is right out of your pub fantasies. It's a charming building, great proportions, great food, good beers and super friendly staff. During my time in the area I found myself coming back here to relax and visit with friends.

My girlfriend and I stopped in for some chips, bread, and drinks. We sat outside overlooking the river. It was beautiful and the staff were charming. The bread starter was underwhelming. The bread had been sliced at least hours ago so it had gotten dry...More
