The Lake Isle

16 High Street East, UPPINGHAM, LE15 9PZ

2 rosettes

Named for W. B. Yeats' Lake Isle of Innisfree, the hope is that visitors will experience a similar feeling of tranquillity in this Georgian townhouse with rooms in the lovely market town of Uppingham. On a pleasingly intimate scale, with a large window looking out onto the high street, inside there are panelled walls and original mahogany fittings, plus simply laid, heavy wooden tables attended by the friendly and efficient service team. French influences are in evidence on the broadly British menu, which changes every six weeks to keep flow with the seasons. There are some smart flavour combinations on show; take a starter of grilled medallion (well, fillet) of South Coast mackerel with crispy ham, bitter leaves, sautéed potatoes and a punchy piccalilli dressing. The quality of the lamb is indisputable in a duo including pan-roasted rack and medallion of braised shoulder, served with creamed celeriac, Savoy cabbage and pancetta. Then, sit back and wait while the dark chocolate and baby pear fondant pudding (served with stem ginger ice cream) is cooked to order.
