Review on Jim's Yard
'Jim' is actually James Trevor, who moved here with his wife Sharon after putting the Jackson Stops Inn at Stretton on the foodie map. Their new home is an old stone building in one of Stamford's courtyards, with conservatory windows overlooking the alfresco area and a bare-brick dining room reached via a metal staircase.
A bistro-style feel pervades the place, with prints on the walls and simply laid, bare tables. The kitchen works to a concise, regularly changing menu with European overtones, and fish is a strong suit. Home-cured gravlax, scallops with black pudding and pesto, and roast monkfish wrapped in Parma ham on pea risotto are typical seafood choices; otherwise try something meaty - perhaps pork belly with apple mash and spiced red cabbage or rump of lamb with root vegetables.
To round things off, consider crème brûlée, tarte Tatin or hot chocolate fondant with pistachio ice cream. There is some excellent drinking to be had on the well-spread wine list. The same team also run Jim's Bistro in Peterborough town centre.
