Review on The Plough at Bolnhurst

After a ten-year stint (and numerous plaudits) at the Old Bridge Hotel, Huntingdon, Martin Lee recently moved south to this delightful old tavern in rural Bedfordshire.

The pub can trace its origins back to medieval times, but there's nothing antiquated about the food on offer. Martin Lee has a sure instinct for local produce and has built up a reliable network of trusted producers around the region.

Sunny Mediterranean influences shine through the menu in the guise of spinach and Ricotta agnolotti with marjoram and Parmesan or roast monkfish with Parma ham and fennel, but the kitchen also casts its net wider for pan-fried foie gras with black pudding and shallot marmalade, tuna tempura, and char-grilled Denham Estate venison with spinach and wild mushroom fricassée. Finish with lemon tart or warm chocolate fondant.

The wine list is a wide-ranging slate with plenty of decent drinking by the glass. Since the Plough still operates as a pub, you are welcome to call in for a pint of real ale and a steak sandwich or a cup of coffee with the newspapers.
