The Olive Branch

Main Street, CLIPSHAM, LE15 7SH

Investigate the bar here for its range of bottled beers, ales from the Grainstore brewery in nearby Oakham, and Sheppy's cider. Note the unusual nurdling chair - used for an archaic pub game when coins are thrown into a hole in the seat - just one of a range of artefacts enriching the interior of this one-time terrace of farm workers' cottages. The pub's name originated when a local squire made a peace offering by opening the inn in 1890 after closing another in the village. Chef and co-owner Sean Hope has earned an AA Rosette for his well-balanced, fiercely local menus. There might be starters like duck and beetroot terrine with pickled walnut and pomegranate salad, or pub-cured bresaola with pickled vegetables and goats' curd; followed by whole roast partridge with game chips, or black olive crusted fillet of salmon with saffron risotto. Finish with refreshing green tea pannacotta with lemongrass meringue and lemon and chilli granita.
