Been twice in two weeks. Menu great. Kids menu great. Food great. Prices great. Service slow both times! First thing your server does is tell you what they don't have. Speaking to other diners confirms it has a reputation for slow service. Food takes a while to come out. We waited 50 minutes tonight. Sunday 5pm booking. Another table said... More

Stayed at the Premier Inn twice on our journey to and from the north of Scotland to break the journey. The experience was very different at the weekend compared to a week day. The pub was very busy with families eating as the hotel was full but there did not appear to be extra staff on to cope and only... More

Been away on business all week, was really looking forward to a good steak or burger. Booked a table ordered a drink and my food, the restaurant wasn't overly busy but seemed to one young lady taking all the orders. I waited for over 30 minutes for a burger. Then to top it all off someone came in and ordered... More

Had been here a couple of times in recent years and enjoyed high standard of food and service. Not this time though. Heating wasn't on and the place was cool, other diners asked to be moved away from door. Service slow, I like it leisurely but this was SLOW! Food plain and poorly presented - little vegetables etc. Obvious staff... More

Had dinner here with my partner at the weekend. Promptly shown to our table. Our server was very friendly and helpful. We both had Tabasco chicken burger and a banoffee and mississippi mud pie for desert. Lovely food and huge portion of desert. Would come back again!

Stayed at the Premier Inn and ate dinner and breakfast at The Dovecote for 2 days. The staff are very efficient and friendly. Reasonably priced good food. Liked that breakfast wax help yourself to cereal, fruit,toast and pastries but breakfast was freshly cooked with good choice and I was able to have a Costa latte with breakfast
