Both the Dove and the Dovetail are great places to visit for a pint (you'd be hard pushed to find a bigger selection of English and European beers) and excellent for a roast on Sunday. The whole roast chicken for two to share has defeated my partner and I on many an occasion. Stuffed with lemon, garlic and chilli and served with mountains of veg (including cabbage, which I'm always pleased to see), roast potatoes and parsnips and a jug of gravy, it's like being back at your nan's. The only difference is the conversation of the overbearing trendies on the table next to you. Last time we amused ourselves greatly by watching the people in the flat opposite ‘plant’ daffodils (fully grown flowers rather than bulbs) by shoving the stems into the mud of the window boxes on their window sills. A genius shortcut to perfect blooms or a pretentious way to overspend in Columbia Road flower market? I'll let you decide.
