I regularly take my husband and either my elderly parents or friends here for lunch. The food is always great and the staff are very friendly and helpful. Dogs are welcome in the garden area but not inside.

This is a travel review site not a site made by the venues. You could contact Dovecote by phone to ask, but I would imagine that cash is welcome. Hope this helps.
