Review on Wellington Inn
Not to be confused with a village of the same name in North Yorkshire, Lund is a slightly out-of-the-way hamlet in the Wolds, a few miles from Beverley. Its main claim to fame is now the high-ranking Wellington Inn by the green, facing the war memorial.
The restaurant is only open for dinner, but it's well supported by the local crowd. There are signs of culinary ambition on a menu that promises things like warm Roquefort cheesecake with poached pear, honey and balsamic syrup, calf's liver with Toulouse sausage, sage and onion mash, or fillet of halibut with smoked salmon and smoked mussel kedgeree, followed by prune and Armagnac parfait.
You can also eat bar food in a tastefully converted back room at lunchtime and in the evening: expect a simpler menu along the lines of a trio of pâtés with toasted brioche, king prawn and asparagus risotto and rum and raisin crème caramel.
North Country real ales are available, but the wine list outstrips anything on the handpumps. It's an excellent-value, modern selection with some particularly interesting stuff from South Africa and half-a-dozen by the glass.
