Scotch eggs at the bar, game from the estate, pizza and a good film in the kitchen garden.. and magical walks all around

A beautiful renovation of an ancient inn that stands a short walk from the middle of glorious Stamford, part of the Burghley estate. Step inside and find varnished wood floors, golden stone walls and fires smouldering. A raft of local ales and some splendid wines are hard to resist, as is the inventive comfort food that flies from the kitchen, perhaps heavenly bites of deep-fried feta and paprika, pan-seared calves liver with mustard mash and a red wine jus, then spiced apple crumble with English custard. The new kitchen garden is a great venue for pizza and film nights - weather permitting, and rugs are provided! Newark, Grantham and Lincoln are all within easy reach, while wonderful walks start from the doorstep. Don't miss Burghley, a five-minute stroll, one of Britain's finest houses.
