Run by renowned local chef Brian Baker, this old village inn fits seamlessly into Lyddington’s long, yellow-brown ironstone streetscape. Stylish, contemporary design works well together with traditional pub essentials, to wit, beams, flagstone floors and winter fires. Modern British menus offer starters like crispy Thai pork salad with sweet chilli sauce; or the sharing platter of ham hock terrine, crispy mini chorizo, Serrano ham, mini Colwick cheese, celeriac remoulade, olives and sourdough, and main courses such as roasted butternut squash with pomegranates, mint salad and gorgonzola crostini; and Brian’s signature sharing dish of grilled rib of Derbyshire beef with frites and béarnaise sauce. Add a shady garden and the mix is complete for an enjoyable visit.
