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.

We had an extended lunch here featuring about half the cocktails and a good selection off the menu and can recommend the nachos without detracting from any other items. Weakest of the lot was probably the smokehouse stuff but even that was still decent
