Review on The Stone Trough Inn

Built on the site of a medieval cottage, this rambling country inn now comprises a complex of red-roofed buildings in a superb position overlooking historic Kirkham Abbey and the rushing River Derwent.

Flagstone floors, log fires and walls covered with bric-a-brac create just the right traditional mood in the bar, where visitors are treated to big-hearted dishes such as fishcakes with lemon butter sauce, braised oxtail, syrup sponge pudding and blackboard specials like haunch of venison on Stilton polenta with stewed raisin and orange jus. Yorkshire real ales are on draught and the affordable wine list has a handy selection by the glass.

More formal meals are also available in the separate restaurant, where the menu favours slightly more ambitious dishes along the lines of seared scallops with fine herb salad and foie gras, roast breast of guinea fowl with confit leg and chanterelle sauce, and chocolate pyramid filled with chocolate and black cherry mousse.
