Just outside the historic 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 home-smoked mackerel fillet, chicory and fennel remoulade, tomato crisps and onion gel, or twice-baked Lincolnshire Poacher soufflé, pickeld shallots, candied walnuts, tomato and rocket, and move on to pressed confit belly pork, black pudding, chorizo and potato bon bons with apple purée, pak choi, and rhubarb jus, or maybe a pea and mint risotto. Wind things up with vanilla pannacotta, banana compôte, salted caramel, Chantilly cream and strawberry purée.
