The Plough at Bolnhurst

Kimbolton Road, BOLNHURST, MK44 2EX

1 rosettes

The Plough is a classic whitewashed 15th-century country inn which envelops you in a cocoon of Tudor beams and timbers, exposed stone walls, tiny windows, and welcoming open fires in its cosy bars. A move into the contemporary restaurant brings a striking contrast: the airy extension features lofty oak-beamed ceilings and a wall of full-length windows to flood the room with light. Fizzing with life at lunchtime, the mood mellows into a more intimate, candlelit vibe in the evening. Top-quality local produce is transformed into big-flavoured modern dishes on daily-changing menus that keep an eye on the seasons, opening in summer with Portland crab with Jersey Royal potatoes, spring onion salad and watercress oil. Next up, pork belly is cooked overnight for that melting texture, and matched with roast Bramley apple purée, creamed potato and crushed peas. For pudding, there's vanilla soufflé with strawberry sauce.
