We had our surrogate sons 17th birthday party there. Ages in our party ranged from 11yrs to 67yrs. The menu catered for all our choices. They didn't do a child's portion, so our 11yr old had a rather large cod & chips! (Perhaps this is something to think of for the future). The food was delicious as was the service. We took our own birthday cake which was not a problem with the landlord. The staff brought it out singing 'Happt Birthday' which was a lovely touch. We will definitely be going back and would recommend them.

A small pub on a country lane and quite off the beaten track. But the excellent food - particularly at lunchtimes - makes it well worth the effort of finding it! A wide-ranging menu, plus a dozen or so 'specials' mean that you should be able to find something to tempt you.

My wife and I have been here several times over the years - we live fairly locally - and neither of us have ever had sufficient room for dessert!

Used to be such a lovely pub, now from the outside looks dirty and dingy, the beautiful garden is now a horrible car park, the beautiful white crisp painted dove cote no longer there, we walked in and walked back out again, such a shame

Had a table for 9 - as always, the food, beer and service were fantastic. Their are a lot of pubs around the country that could learn a lot from Nicky and his team at the Dovecote Inn - Superb!!
