Open all year

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 twice-baked beetroot soufflé; Lancashire cheese and onion pie; crusted mackerel fillets; and plum clafoutis. The gourmet themed nights are extremely popular and booking is essential.
