A very enjoyable evening. As always the food was delicious and plenty of choices on the menu. The staff are friendly but organised and professional and the atmosphere of the restaurant is lovely especially with the Christmas decorations looking so beautiful. This is a come again place to dine.

With an AA Rosette to its name, Dovecote Restaurant is nestled into the Derbyshire countryside, in a striking building that dates back to 1002. Sublime English and continental cuisine is served, as well as stunning champagne breakfasts.
Using only the freshest seasonal ingredients, the imaginative Dovecote Restaurant menu showcases a selection of fine recipes, from juicy grills to decadent tarts. Gressingham duckbreast is served alongside honey roasted carrots and bok choi, with radishes and an inventive duck leg pastille. Alternatively, the Morley Hayes Hotel restaurant offers a Wookey Hole cheddar and onion tart, with tantalising chicory and pear salad and a hazelnut dressing.
Indulgent desserts at Dovecote in Derby include an innovative rhubarb jelly with buttermilk panacotta and rhubarb sorbet, topped with a ginger parkin crumb. Enjoy impressive views over the golf course while indulging in a champagne breakfast, with a classic full English or sweet pancakes.

As usual perfect setting meal and service. It was like entering a magic world driving down the driveway to the buildings.

Fortunately for us we have visited the Dovecote for the last few weeks on consecutive Sundays. On each occasion the ambiance, staff professionalism and food quality has been extremely consistent and of the highest quality. The variety of meal choices also means you can experience something different each time even when visiting regularly which is wonderful.

Very welcoming staff. Lovely ambience. Have been once before but although the staff were lovely the service had been slow and the ambience poor. This time not so. Lovely food (on both occasions!).

Absolutely sublime from arriving through to leaving! Great surroundings, absolutely stunning food, happy and attentive staff. We'll definitely be back!

As always, venue, staff, food and pianist were faultless. We had a lovely afternoon. We had a lactose free member of our party, and she had a special menu with at least three choices for each course. The Christmas decorations were also fantastic.
We really love this restaurant.

An excellent meal, with excellent service, had the two course lunch, turkey dinner and a parking and pear dessert. Couldn't fault it.
