Took my wife here for a belated valentines meal as she was working late on the day. Was not disappointed. On arrival we were greeted and sat in the bar area and given menus to look over. Drinks orders were taken by a waiter and brought quickly over to us. A waiter then came back for our food order. After... More

We won a voucher for afternoon tea at Morley Hayes. I had to book it over the phone as the online booking didn't work. We were very impressed by the range of teas on offer. I had the citrus and ginger which was a proper infusion. (I had expected a fruit tea bag!) There were many nice touches, such as... More

I went for my birthday in January and all the staff were very friendly and attentive. An extra touch was receiving a birthday card and balloon on the way out. Food is very tasty and you certainly don't leave hungry as it's filling. The restaurant has got a relaxed atmosphere so suitable for everyone. There is plenty of onsite, free... More

A three course breakfast, each course offering a wide choice. Half a bottle of champagne per couple. Great food at a very reasonable price.

Been to the Dovecote a few times before and absolutely love it. This time we tried Sunday dinner. It did not disappoint. I had lamb and although it wasn't that warm (they did make me a new one) it was absolutely delicious when it came. It is by far the best place around for a really good home cooked Sunday... More

We went as family [party - 17 of us - for Sunday lunch. We had previously booked a long time in advance to get the "Hayloft" to be a little separated from the other diners. The food was very good indeed Plenty of choice for a lunch menu and service was fantastic Thanks to all.

My wife and I visited the Dovecote Restaurant on Saturday evening for a celebratory dinner and were looking forward to good food and service as experienced in the past. Unfortunately by the end of the evening we felt rather disappointed. The fillet steaks that we ordered were not cooked as we requested - they were both considerably overcooked in fact.... More

Attended several Christmas parties at different venues and the Christmas Cracker party night was by far the best. The food, atmosphere, decorations and entertainment were all great and the best value. There was a choice of party nights-different styles, dates and costs and this was a great choice for a mid week.
