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.

Dovecote Restaurant in Derbyshire is easily accessed from the A608, just a 7-minute drive away.

    We always choose The Dovecote Restaurant for family special occasions, in this case my sisters special (70!) birthday! Made welcome by friendly staff, meal was lovely, beautifully presented as always. Balloon and card for the birthday girl which went down very well!

    We as a family and friends use the Dovecote on a fairly regular basis and have celebrated many events there. It never fails to impress. The food is always excellent and the staff very friendly, knowledgeable and efficient.

    Good food, but one or two inexperienced serving staff. We were very grateful for the help we received in getting back to our overnight accommodation.
