The Morley Hayes Hotel

Main Road, MORLEY, DE7 6DG

2 rosettes

Morley Hayes near Derby has been a farm estate and an orphanage in its time, but has been run as a dynamic hotel since the 1980s, and with its golf complex, conference facilities and wedding venue, it has most bases covered. The Dovecote, its principal dining room, is to be found on the raftered first floor of a separate former farm building, overlooking the golf course and surrounding countryside. The kitchen keeps abreast of contemporary trends, offering a roster of unpretentious modern dishes, with influences from home and around the globe adding vibrancy and colour. Crispy pork terrine with black pudding and rhubarb pur?e may whet the appetite for roast loin of local lamb given a Moroccan spin with lamb kofta, couscous and smoked aubergine, or you might head east for five spice-roasted duck with sweet potato pur?e, pak choi, carrots and soy sauce dressing. Finish with classic apple tart Tatin with clotted cream ice cream, or ginger beer rum baba with rhubarb comp?te and vanilla cream.
