Eye-catching, inventive food in a Victorian mansion

Private dining
Wines by the glass
Wheelchair access

The balustraded red-brick mansion, built in 1877, sits in five acres of landscaped parkland between the Wolds and the Humber and makes a pleasant spot for the full country-house experience. Dining takes place in the Comfy Duck Bistro, which goes for a modern brasserie look and delivers inventive modern British comfort food to match. Seared scallops are paired with roe salt, ham hock terrine, piccalilli purée and hazelnut crumb, ahead of a creative partnership of duck breast with home-made duck and orange sausage, roasted figs and caramelised butternut squash purée. Dessert brings passionfruit crème brûlée with blood orange sorbet, crushed pistachios and meringue sticks.
