Review on The Farmers Arms

Welton Hill isn't much more than a few houses and a pub surrounded by open farmland some eight miles north of Lincoln, but this enterprising brick-built hostelry (formerly a transport café) brings in the crowds because of its food and its wine.

You can sup real ales in the original low-beamed bar, but most people come here for the fermented juice of the grape. The list runs to more than 150 bins, with at least 30 generally available by the glass; landlord Andrew Herring also acts as resident wine merchant. As you might expect, tastings and special events are much in demand.

On the food front, the kitchen makes profitable use of Lincolnshire game and fish from Grimsby for a regularly changing menu that takes off in the evenings. Mussels steamed in Thai spices and coconut cream might open proceedings, before Moroccan-style vegetable tagine, pan-seared fillet of ostrich or hearty braised steak, ale and mushroom pasty with onion gravy. For afters, expect homespun offerings like warm cinnamon and apple shortcake with a crumble topping or baked New York cheesecake.
