The music is sometimes too loud and intrusive and that makes for a shouty lunch.

Sunday roast lunch is what I go for, with great Yorkshire puddings. I have been on other occasions and its been very noisy and too loud music for a Sunday lunch, but this last time was just right.

We've booked a table at the Dove and Olive as a group of friends (about 8-10 people each time) with differing dietary requirements and budgets. Each time, everyone has enjoyed their meal, left feeling full and paying within their affordable range. Nice friendly staff, too.

Good beers, one of the worst pub burgers I've ever had. Chips served like a leftover bunch. Burger pattie hard and obviously precooked hours before. The rest of the burger wasn't much either. Massive contrast to the tasty well served schnitzel from last visit.
