Just a quick pint, then I'm off left this review about The Dovecote Inn

Very good country pub, with a pleasingly traditional interior. The bar area is extended by a small dining area at one end, next to which is a compact dining room too. Decking beer garden to the rear, covered by an open wooden pergola with climbing plants taking hold. Quite food orientated, which has to be the case for a place like this to survive, but the beer quality has always been good. Served by gravity from hidden casks behind the bar-back, I found the inevitable Harvey's supplemented by Wickwar Bob, Gales HSB and Long Blonde from the Long Man brewery (£3.90) on this long overdue re-visit. NB - It used to be called The Alders until the 1980s, and changing a pub's name is often a bad move, but no harm done here.
