Unable to resist the temptation, the owners have named their own-label real ale Cheeky Bustard. It's just one of the beers in the flagstone-floored bar of this pleasingly restored pub. At well-spaced tables in the restaurant, diners enjoy Moroccan spiced monkfish with braised lentils and spiced broccoli fritters; Belton Park venison loin with artichoke gratin, carottes de sable, wilted kale, blackberry purée and red wine sauce; or deep-fried gorgonzola and walnut gnocchi with roasted butternut squash, spinach and nutmeg cream, and walnut dressing. Be prepared to explain to curious children why they eat from the Little Bustards menu. The restaurant opens to a lovely courtyard, and there's a private dining area for up to 12 people. Live jazz features too.
