Hilary and I took over The Dovecote in December 2014. We are so pleased to be the new landlord and landlady at The Dovecote and we have received such a warm welcome from everyone in Narborough and the surrounding villages.​

Hilary was the General Manager at Gynsills in Glenfield, Leicester for over 20 years. Michael has been in the catering industry for 30 years and worked both as a General Manager and Regional Manager for large organisations such as Whitbread, Mitchells and Butlers and Spirit.

We are very passionate about good, honest food and most of the dishes we serve are made from scratch on the premises. We use fresh and local ingredients where ever possible and are always looking for new menu ideas and exciting new dishes. Hilary is the foodie and has a hands approach to the kitchen and every dish we serve. She takes great pride in being able to cook and serve any dish a guest may request, given some notice.​​

We have personally tasted all our wines and spirits which was a lot of fun and we are proud to serve the full range of ​Heineken owned brands on our bar.

We believe very strongly that the customer is our main reason for being, so you won’t hear our team refusing to swap chips for mash or saying we can’t vary a dish because the till won’t allow it. If we have the ingredients in the kitchen, the customer can order it!
