Review on Caunton Beck
Having made a great success of The Wig & Mitre in Lincoln, the Hopes decided to repeat the formula in a country pub: their chosen spot was a sixteenth-century Nottinghamshire village hostelry by a 'beck'. After a serious re-vamp, the Caunton Beck re-opened its doors as a self-styled 'meeting house, reading room, watering hole and restaurant'.
Like The Wig & Mitre, this place thrives on flexibility: you can call can in for something to eat or drink at any time from 8 in the morning to 11 o'clock at night, and you can take a pew in the buzzy bar or the more relaxed restaurant. It's all very civilised: there are papers to read, comfy chairs to lounge in, and parasols out on the terrace in fine weather.
Beyond breakfasts of poached eggs on toast, croissants and so forth, the kitchen delivers all manner of modern stuff including sardines with crispy pancetta and pine nuts, game terrine with fig and grape chutney, fillet of sea bass on herb linguine, and Barnsley chop with grain mustard mash before proceedings come to a close with raspberry and elderflower jelly or vanilla pannacotta with rhubarb ice cream.
