Spacious and well-appointed, The Dove is a lovely traditional pub with modern accents. Recently refurbished to a high standard and with an extensive garden refurbishment due in March, the pub’s appeal is never-ending. The Dove boasts refreshing decor and comfortable surroundings in which to relax, whether you choose to pull up a pew in the conservatory or have a drink in the welcoming bar area.
The extensive menu is packed with delicious classic dishes. Particularly impressive are the hearty, homemade lasagne, traditional fish and chips, and Old Spot sausages and mash. In addition to the main menu, you’ll also be able to choose from the chef’s daily specials. Recent offerings such as the flavoursome fillet of beef with homemade Bordelaise sauce and palate-pleasing salmon en croute have proved very popular. A selection of tasty vegetarian dishes is also available, and the attentive staff are happy to cater for other dietary requirements. To finish your meal on a sweet note, look to the plethora of tempting desserts, including Eton Mess, comforting homemade crumble, rich chocolate brownie, and the mouth-watering homemade Baileys and white chocolate cheesecake.
For those looking for a lighter meal, the lunch menu offers plenty of choice at excellent value. Available in the afternoon from Monday to Friday, one course will set you back just £6.95, while two courses cost £8.95. Other offers worth seeking out include The Dove’s special pie deal every Wednesday, which comprises a homemade pie and a drink for £9.95. On Friday, dine from the seafood specials menu and receive a complimentary glass of wine.
If you’re meeting for a social drink, you won’t find a better spot than The Dove. The bar is well stocked with a selection of beer and lager as well as several local ales. There’s also a wide variety of popular spirits, wine and soft drinks to suit all tastes and budgets. This, along with the quiz night on Thursday and occasional live music (visit their Facebook page for updates), all makes The Dove the perfect place for a night out with friends.
