A glimpse of the Humber Bridge means there’s no need to geolocate – this is the Lincolnshire side of the Humber, the abundant flatlands that grow so much of what we eat in the UK, and it is home to Colin and Bex McGurran’s inspiring restaurant with rooms. It sits within a village of just 1,000 or so souls and is the kind of place that once ensconced in one of the lavishly adorned bedrooms, you really won’t want to leave. The restaurant is done out in an eye-catching contemporary style, with natural surfaces and designer touches, a space with a confident identity, watched over by a formally attired team who make you feel at home. A good deal of what appears on the menus comes from hereabouts, and much of it is actually grown on the owner’s own farm – farm to fork in its purest form. Whether you choose from the carte or opt to follow the lead of the eight-course tasting menu, expect creative and modern food which maintains the integrity of the splendid produce. Dinner might begin with the heavenly combination of onions and mushrooms, with a tender boned chicken wing and rich black truffle sauce, before a mackerel dish of crisp skinned fillet and smoked tartare, matched with horseradish cream and ponzu gel.  Pork belly is cooked long and slow (overnight as it happens), and arrives tender and full of flavour, matched with pineapple salsa and peanut satay in a winning combination, and, among sweet courses, Yorkshire rhubarb is the star of the show (poached, crème and sorbet). The wine list is as well-judged and thought-provoking as the food.
