We went to the Dovecote Restaurant to celebrate our 35th wedding anniversary, my husband alway has fillet steak but there was none on the menu so he chose sirloin, he said it was the best steak he had ever tasted and if he didnt know that it was sirloin he would have taken it for fillet, I also enjoyed my meal; Food excellent - Staff excellent - Service excellent, although it was slightly exspensive it was worth every penny, we would recommend it to anyone, we also spent a night in the hotel which was also excellent along with the staff and the breakfast, SUPERB.

We are delighted you enjoyed your first visit to Morley Hayes. Fillet steak is now back on the menu and is excellent. We source all our beef from our own farms or from farms within Derbyshire. Our prices are very competitive as we do not charge a service charge and a selection of fresh vegetables and seasonal potaoes are included.

Three of us had lunch yesterday at Dovecote Restaurant. Have been in the past and it is a wonderful place to eat - friendly staff, good menu, excellent food and presentation.

Toilets were in exceptionally clean. Everywhere - the same standard of cleanliness.

Excellent value for money.
Absolutely faultless.

My partner treated me to dinner at the Dovecote on Friday the 5th October for my birthday and we were both very impressed by the quality of the food, the lovely decor and furnishings and the very attentive service from the staff. My starter of smoked haddock fishcake was impeccable, very crisp and crunchy on the outside with a velvety smooth inner and plenty of fish!
The main course was also excellent, an assiette of pork featuring a beautifully cooked square of belly pork, sliced loin of pork on a gorgeous onion and wholegrain mustard confit and a tasty black pudding suasage.
The warm chocolate tart was a triumph, a melting crumbly chocolate pastry case with an intense liquid chocolate filling accompanied with salted caramel drizzle and clotted cream ice cream.
Wine was fairly priced and there are a good selection of dessert wines.
All in all a very enjoyable and memorable evening

This restaurant exceeded our expectations. Staff was friendly and helpful, meal was excellent and is worth its price. Only the wines are quite expensive, but of course you don't have to go for wine.
The whole experience is worth it and we will certainly go back.
