Dog In A Doublet

Northside, THORNEY, PE6 0RW

This 16th-century, riverside pub, next to one of the biggest lock gates in Europe, is owned by John McGinn, who, a few years ago, competed in BBC's MasterChef. It's a real success story. Local ales and home-made cider draw drinkers to the bar with its open fire, and for food, John is passionate about creating British classics with a twist. The pub has its own chickens and rare-breed pigs that live on land next door, and farm produce is available to buy in the restaurant deli. There's a street food and bar snack menu of 'nibbling snacks' (Swedish juniper and sweet orange roll mops), 'munching snacks' (home-reared sausage hot dog in a blanket) and 'bowls' (Thai beef salad with lemongrass). Turning to the tempting main menu and there could be a starter of black sesame tempura whitebait with korma mayo; and 24-hour lamb shoulder, shepherd's pie sauce, potato purée, cheese and chive hash and pea medley. There's now a five-course tasting lunch and an eight-course tasting menu - a version is offered to vegetarians and vegans too.
