16 High Street East, UPPINGHAM, LE15 9PZ
An 18th-century property is the setting for this restaurant with rooms in the market town of Uppingham. In the restaurant, a double-fronted glass facade looks over the High Street. It has panelling, wine corks and foodie pictures on the walls and unclothed wooden tables, with well-oiled service from amenable front-of-house staff. The kitchen puts a lot of creative effort to add interest and variety, pulling in ideas - and ingredients - from wherever. Crispy panko-crumbed scallops are served with pork belly, curry crème, butternut squash, peanuts and herbs in a starter of multiple flavours and textures - as is a main course of neatly timed pan-fried duck breast with balsamic-infused baby beets, cippolini onions, chicory and polenta studded with feta and walnuts. Oriental influences are apparent occasionally, for example in grilled fillet of sea bass with Japanese mushrooms, toasted cucumber, prawn and sesame fishcakes and wasabi. Puddings return to base in the shape of pot au chocolat with mini doughnuts, or sticky plum, port and ginger compôte with rice pudding parfait.
