The Dove Inn

Plum Pudding Lane, Dargate, CANTERBURY, ME13 9HB

1 rosettes

The Dove is a cosy and friendly village gastro-pub where the kitchen toes the contemporary British line. Seared scallops paired with black pudding and bacon chips, served with pea velouté, or chicken liver parfait with red onion jam are what to expect among starters, followed by roast hake fillet on potato purée with sautéed new potatoes, chorizo and wilted chard or, in season, roast leg of guinea fowl with black pudding mash, greens and a red wine jus. Gourmet wine dinners are run here, and the short menus may conclude with cherry Bakewell tart with berry compôte and cherry brandy ice cream.
