The William Cecil

High Street, St Martins, STAMFORD, PE9 2LJ

2 rosettes

The hotel is an interesting amalgam of three Georgian houses built at different times, named after the Elizabethan statesman otherwise known as Lord Burghley. Just off the road to Stamford, it's a clever blend of old and new, the panelling done in lighter colours, with booth seating in the restaurant. The kitchen team sources locally and has plenty of creative flair at its disposal. That can be seen in a starter of smoked squab with pomegranate and dandelion, which might be followed by herb-crusted halibut with a sesame spring roll in vanilla sauce. Finish with baked rice pudding, chocolate sorbet and Earl Grey prunes.
