Review on The Wheatsheaf at Beetham

By the river and opposite the village church, this sixteenth-century inn makes a striking impression with its tall stone chimneys, half-timbered corner bay and steeply pitched roof.

Drinkers and smokers head for the lively taproom, those wanting food (plus candles and fresh flowers) head up to one of the three immaculately laid out dining rooms.

Bar meals and open sandwiches are served at lunchtime, but the kitchen gets into top gear for dinner. There's a pronounced local flavour to many of the dishes on offer: grilled slices of black pudding with bacon; steak, mushroom and Cumberland ale pie; roast loin of Silversale lamb, for example. But there's an ambitious European streak as well, which brings on board seared breast and confit of duck, or suprême of chicken of chicken with pancetta on Savoy cabbage with chorizo. Desserts could include twice-baked chocolate and pecan cake or Amaretto raspberry trifle.
