A warm welcome is guaranteed at this bustling 19th-century pub, tucked away in the delightful Wylye Valley. Plenty of original features are still in evidence such as the striking central fireplace and flagstone and oak floors. The appealing menu is based firmly on West Country produce, with many ingredients coming from just a few miles away. Popular lunchtime bar snacks give way to a full evening carte featuring well-made and hearty pub classics. Typical starters include whitebait with home-made lemon and tartare sauce; and mussels in creamy white wine and fresh crab sauce. These might be followed by slow-braised lamb shank with mustard mash, or the Dove Inn mixed grill. Fish and chips, and the famous Dove burger and chips are available to take away, traditionally wrapped in newspaper. The garden is the perfect spot for barbecues or a drink on summer days.
