The Old Bakery

26-28 Burton Road, LINCOLN, LN1 3LB

2 rosettes

In the Uphill district of this undulating city, very near the Cathedral and Castle, Ivano and Tracey de Serio's restaurant-with-rooms is a distinctly homely place, with the feel of a farmhouse kitchen in the tiled dining room. A dresser furnished with produce baskets and a wine rack overlooks proceedings, and the kitchen turns out a fairly lengthy menu of modern British food that has most of the technical tricks of today's culinary fashion at its disposal. Pot-roasted partridge breast with smoked bacon porridge, lemongrass broth and pear and fig chutney is a beguiling mixture of messages to begin, while main courses are multi-layered, richly sauced affairs, running from prune-stuffed rabbit loin in Bateman's Ale with wild mushroom barley risotto and juniper jus, to venison loin and r÷sti in port and Stilton, via the market fish of the day. A five-course taster menu offers a comprehensive tour. Desserts may take an unconventional Italian approach, adding extra-virgin olive oil to the tiramis¨, and an extensive cheese menu contains plenty of top gear.
