    Would’ve rated the food higher if it was adequately warm/hot. I had the beef pie which was tasty and the beef was tender. Chips, gravy and mushy peas were cold as were all my friends dishes hence didn’t eat the meals we paid for. This was on a quiet Weds night and simple mistakes that are unacceptable for a pub that blatantly advertise awards for their food! and demonstrates a lazy and don’t care attitude in the staff. Cook and heat your food properly... that shouldn’t be too hard to fix right Dove & olive?!

    Excellent range of craft beers. We tried the beer of the day which is New World Pilsner, and it is cold and refreshing on a warm day. For lunch we ordered a variety of house smoked meats. The short rib and lamb are good and the sides that accompany the mains are good too. However the brisket is dry and woody, maybe due to not enough basting in the cooking process. That dish certainly needs more work done to it.

    Went for the Sunday roast and it was fine although it was pulled pork rather than a roast. No crackling. Vegies and Yorkshire puding all good although could have been hotter.

    Food servings are always tasty and well portioned. Nothing too extravagant, but a great feed. Love the range of beers available & the attentive service. A pre-theatre favourite for our group.

    I LOVED that they had FeverTree tonic to go with the nice gins that they had in stock! I wish more pubs would do that! Staff were super helpful and food was delivered fast, which we appreciated as we needed to get to another event afterwards. Fish and chips were pretty good for pub food, the fried chicken burger was ok - the chicken was a little dry and more batter than chicken on the thinner end (the fatter end was better) - but we'll definitely be back! We want to try the Sunday Roast they put on!

    We love going to trivia at the Dove & Olive! It's such a fun night out with friends.. and the Schnitty is always delicious!! We also tried the cheesy garlic bread this time.. also yummy, as was the steak with carrots. Will be back.

    I had the baked Salmon - it was delish! My friends also enjoyed their choices. Really we were there for Drag Bingo, which was fabulous. Miss Annie Mation is a great artist and a very good bingo caller. Go for the food and drinks, but stay for the drag show!
