Just outside the historical town of Louth, this small hotel is within beautifully maintained lawns and gardens and has lovely country views. The menu might be a crowd-pleaser, but the kitchen puts a great deal of effort and imagination into well-constructed, often unusual dishes. Start with chicken liver and Calvados parfait, rich and smooth, with quince and apple purée and toasted walnut bread, or wild mushroom béarnaise with a slow-cooked egg, and go on to roast chicken breast with celeriac and pea risotto with parmesan and truffle shavings, or grilled plaice fillets with beurre blanc, triple-cooked chips and mushy peas. Wind things up with treacle tart and ginger ice cream.
