It's well worth seeking out The Yard, tucked away behind buildings on Ironmonger Street in this charming old town. French windows in the ground-floor conservatory open on to a secluded courtyard and pretty garden, and there's more space upstairs, where monochrome photographs on brick walls show past times in Stamford. Creamy chicken liver parfait with grape and apple chutney and toasted brioche gets things off to a flier, before main course brings spicy pepper and prawn risotto as an accompaniment to chilli-glazed salmon fillet. Desserts are a class act too, among them a choc-fest trio of tart, mousse, and milk chocolate and honeycomb parfait.
