What our clients say

"Dovetail was recommended to us by close friends and John Kirby and his team met the brief, they were alone in this.   The design was innovative and we enjoyed the relationship of working up the design, selecting materials and details with them.   The attention to detail was fantastic and the finished product, recently featured in Beautiful Kitchens magazine, testament to a fabulous job.
From the very start to the final fitting the service and quality was faultless. We are architects so we were naturally going to be demanding the best and that is exactly what we got."

John and Rita Cooper

"We simply love our new kitchen.  John and his team were amazingly patient in working and re-working the design until we had something with which we were completely happy.  They made many suggestions that we would never have thought of (such as built-in bins and crockery drawers instead of cupboards) and persuaded us to think boldly at times.  But they also listened very carefully to what we wanted and incorporated our ideas such as rounded corners and cornices and a herb drawer.
The standard of materials used, the workmanship and project management were outstanding.  The result is a stunning kitchen which is a delight to be in and the envy of our friends and family.  All in all we can very highly recommend John and the team at Dovetail."

Kate Wilson

"Dovetail have now made two kitchens for me and both times it has been such a fun experience and resulted in two beautifully crafted and highly individual kitchens. I love working with Dovetail. The team are superb. I could not recommend them more highly."

Charlotte Allday

"Dovetail are a delight to work with. They are extremely knowledgeable and helpful and nothing is too much trouble. They pay great attention to detail and welcomed my ideas. Every job they have done for us has been to an exceptional standard and have been delivered on time. They have designed a study for us, a walk in wardrobe area, a beautiful bespoke dining table and side cabinet and we are now working with them on a kitchen and utility room. 
I wholeheartedly recommend Dovetail."

Nicky Mockford

"Our Dovetail kitchen continues to delight us on a daily basis – we live in it!  There is nothing I want to change and this is down to John and Lindsay's design skills and their patience in understanding our needs and coming up with a practical and good-looking solutions. Nothing was too much trouble.  They even took me to choose the slabs of granite to be used for the worktops.

Our kitchen was ready on time and not a penny over budget.   

The installation went very smoothly and, if any problems did crop up, they were overcome without us hearing about them.  When I think of Dovetail the word ‘solid’ comes to mind.   Their furniture is solid and so is their service."
