The Dovecote Café


January Notice: The Dovecote Café remains closed in-line with Tier 3 restrictions. We look forward to seeing you again just as soon as we’re able to reopen. 

Food serving times are 10am – 3pm with last food orders at 2:45pm

Newly refurbished, and fully COVID secure, it’s been a fantastic summer despite the challenges of this year, and we look forward to seeing you all at The Dovecote Café this autumn & winter.

To make a booking, please call the café on 01929 462243

Dorset is currently in Tier 2 so we do have the following restrictions in place:

Set in the Walled Garden, The Dovecote café is open 7 days a week all year round (excluding Christmas period), serving breakfasts, brunch, lunch, tea and coffee and cakes.  Working in partnership with onsite Social Enterprise and College of Education, Employ My Ability’s (link to EMA website) students gain real life experience in catering, customer service and front of house, working along side our trained professionals.  

There is plenty of choice at the Dovecote; whether you want a coffee and cake, afternoon tea for a special occasion, breakfast or lunch, we hope there is something on our menu to cater for everyone.  We also offer smaller portions for children and water for dogs, both of which are welcome to visit our café and gardens.

Over the winter months roast dinners are available on a Sunday, these are so good, they have gained quite a following, so make sure you book ahead to avoid disappointment.

Private Functions: The Dovecote Cafe is usually available to hire for celebrations like christenings, baby showers, birthdays, wedding anniversary parties and big family gatherings – however, due to the recent government announcements (September 10th 2020) for the time being we cannot accommodate bookings larger than 6 people. Keep following our website and social media for updates.
