Review on Winteringham Fields
A remarkable sixteenth-century manor in an out-of-the-way village not far from the Humber Bridge, Winteringham Fields has won just about every accolade in the book, and it's about to enter its second golden age. When the Schwabs sold the restaurant in 2005, it marked the end of an era, but new owners Colin and Rebecca McGurran have already put their own stamp on this Lincolnshire gem - extending the dining room and terrace, as well as launching upbeat gastronomic events.
There have been a number of changes in the kitchen, but the current brigade is on track, delivering finely wrought modern French food that is streets ahead of anything else in the county. Starters of, say, scallops carbonara with baby leek etuvée and crispy pancetta give way to braised pork belly with chickpea and paprika-flaked cod and squid fritter or fillet of sea bass with potato and duck pavé, baby beetroot, Avruga caviar veloute, spinach and garlic purée. For dessert, perhaps, try raspberry clafoutis with ginger ice cream and eau de framboise emulsion.
Winteringham Fields is a unique experience and a one-off destination. You don't even need to worry about driving home, since the accommodation is truly delightful (the McCurrans recently broke with tradition and introduced inviting mid-week packages).
