We went to the Dovecote to celebrate our 33rd wedding anniversary with a champagne breakfast, as usual it was a fine dining experience.

A member of the Gourmet Society, The Dovecote Restaurant in Morley Hayes, Derby, offers English and Continental cuisine at its finest. The interior is designed to recapture the original essence of the building, whilst offering a sense of class and chic through the use of fine fabrics and well-chosen colours. The menu is seasonal and relies on only the freshest ingredients to create dishes such as smoked haddock cannelloni with Derby cheese mustard cream sauce, chicken breast with apple and onion marmalade and monkfish with wild rocket risotto. Vegetarians are likely to be equally delighted with dishes such as tomato tart, maple syrup roasted chicory and Golden Cross goat's cheese to tempt them. A word to dieters: beware the dessert menu; it's a seductive selection of decadent treats.

    I went to the Dovecote Restaurant with a group of friends for a Christmas meal. The Christmas lights outside were absolutely stunning and set the Christmas mood. The meal was excellent as usual and the service was excellent too.
    We want to book again for next Christmas as we cant imagine anywhere better for the price.

    Lovely relaxed atmosphere for breakfast, I'd previously only visited The Dovecote for evening meals. The staff were attentive, the variety on the menu was superb, with some dishes that I would not usually expect from a breakfast menu, which made my decisions very difficult indeed!

    We went for my 50th birthday my mum,sister&my daughter the champagne breakfast was absolutely fantastic we all thoroughly enjoyed it all the food was perfect and the staff were great very very friendly and very smart looking. I loved that we were given a long break between courses we were left to chat which was lovely we just had the most fantastic experience and will definitely be telling everybody

    We have eaten here before and the food has been excellent. However on 13 August 17 out lunch left a little to be desired. The roast potatoes were very hard and the lamb, although very tasty, was very bitty. It was mentioned to the waitress who said she would let the chef know but we did not receive any feedback after this so mentioniex it again when settling the bill but it was not acknowledged. We would still recommend your restaurant as I believe/hope this was a one off experience
