The Dovecote Inn

Cross Hill, LAXTON, NG22 0SX

Like most of the village of Laxton, the 18th-century Dovecote Inn is Crown Estate property, belonging to the Royal Family. There's a delightful beer garden with views of the church, while the interior has a bar as well as three cosy wining and dining rooms. The seasonally changing menus and daily changing specials board could include baked goats' cheese, roasted fig, wild rocket, walnuts and honey dressing; Thoresbury Estate wild venison burger with caramelised onions; home-made steak and ale shortcrust pastry pie; and pear, dark chocolate and marzipan strudel. The gourmet themed nights are extremely popular and booking is essential.
