Sluice Road, SOUTH FERRIBY, DN18 6JQ
Tucked amidst creeks and moorings where the River Ancholme meets the Humber Estuary; panoramic views from the patio and restaurant encompass the waterways and nearby Humber Bridge. An appealingly, updated 19th-century inn, with much exposed brickwork and a log-burning stove, this is a popular stop for birdwatchers and dog-walkers. Lincolnshire-brewed beers hit the spot and a happy mix of seasonal cuisine and traditional pub grub celebrates local produce, including from the pub's own acreage; Lincolnshire pheasant with creamed sprouts and polenta may feature. Charcoal-grilled steaks are the speciality of the house; the belted Galloway meat is matured in an ageing-cabinet on-site.
