Thank you and your wonderful team for giving M and I such a lovely lunch last Sunday, and apologies for the lateness in writing, it has been a very hectic week. From initial contact with you (for a very late booking), your politeness and enthusiasm to get us on board with you was simply magnificent; such a pleasant change to the normal manner in which a booking might be received. From here on in, from our arrival to leaving you, everything was just perfect, 100% in my book, and I can be extremely critical.  A brilliant, well-thought-out/imaginative menu, delicious and beautifully served food, chatty, attentive, caring and fun staffing, you all; just textbook stuff, wonderful. You also gave lovely Gemma (labrador) a great fuss and plenty of fresh water, she thanks you also. I hope that you have had a good week and I can’t wait to come back and try another of your amazing dishes very soon. Please pass on our thanks to your fantastic crew.
Mr G, Rockbourne

Thank you for the excellent service you gave us for my 90th birthday party and the kind extras of birthday card, flowers and decorations. We all enjoyed the meal very much and hope to come again. Please pass on our thanks to all members of the staff on duty at lunch time on 30th March.
Mrs S, Heytesbury

A little gem of the main routes – I cannot praise enough the welcome, the accommodation and the quality of the food at this place
Mr B, Matlock

Superb Stay – This is an exceptional venue. The welcome, food, service and accommodation were exemplary. There was a party of nearly forty for lunch but attention to details was like it was just for my wife and I. Wow it is good!

Mr and Mrs D, Bridgwater.

The very best you could ask for – well from the time we got there till the time we left we could not have asked for more. The staff were excellent and went out of their way to make our stay there complete. The food was out of this world and what was so good is the way they catered for our special dietary requirements- the staff were so helpful! The bar has a great variety of real ales and wines. I mean what a great place to stay! We have already recommended this lovely little hotel to our friends!

Mr B, Canvey Island.

Fantastic short visit! Will definitely go back! – We thoroughly enjoyed our night at The Dove Inn and have already recommended it to our friends. The family room was a whole flat with two rooms, a kitchen and sitting room. The beds were really comfortable; it was warm and very clean. The staff went out of their way to be accommodating! The food was excellent both at dinner and at breakfast.

Ms S, Worthing.

Delightful Anniversary Party – Without the good humour and ready smiles from front of house and the unseen, but much appreciated hard work from the kitchen it would have been an ordinary affair. The Dove met our expectations from every department.  I have only received the best comments from those who attended, from the excellent choice of wine, especially the red, to the quality of the crackling and from a personal point of view the Yorkshire puddings, to the Crème Brule and Pavlova, the meal was wonderful and much enjoyed.  Those who stayed in the accommodation were very impressed and could not believe that we “country mice” could have rooms so nice. Thank you to all.

Mr and Mrs T, Bishopstrow.

We just wanted to say thanks for your warm welcome and hospitality yesterday (Sat) when we arrived at lunch time with our retriever Maisie. We didn’t really expect to be allowed in as Maisie was somewhat grubby after a walk along the Wyle Valley but the owner/landlord was really kind and hospitable. Maisie really appreciated the biscuits and the bowl of water which was fetched for her. My wife and I certainly enjoyed being in the warm (my those wood burners throw out some heat )and found the food and service excellent. We look forward to another visit in the not too distant future.
