Chequers Inn

Main Street, WOOLSTHORPE BY BELVOIR, Grantham, NG32 1LU

1 rosettes

A beautifully preserved 17th-century inn, the Chequers stands cheek-by-jowl with Belvoir Castle in a pastoral spot where Lincs meets Leics and Notts. Interiors match old and new, with brasserie-style tables and banquettes against imposing stone walls in the dining room, while the pub retains its rustic ambience with a big old fireplace and low ceilings to contain the happy babble. A menu of impeccably forward-thinking British food built from local supplies might start with grilled mackerel and olive and celery salsa, and rock on with blade of beef, served with caramelised onion mash, braised red cabbage and puréed celeriac. Conclude with orange pannacotta and meringue with orange confit.
