Church House, Church Lane, Horncastle, LN9 5HW
At Captain & Cook, located in an attractive former grammar school dating back to 1778, there is temptation at every turn. A perusal of the many delights on the menu is guaranteed to persuade you to try a delicious homemade lunch; a look at the delectable cakes displayed on the counter is sure to result in you indulging in something sweet; and a browse of the shelves stocked with lovely homewares and speciality produce will no doubt entice you to purchase one or two items to take home with you. The interior itself is inviting too, with a warming log fire during winter, yielding leather sofas, intimate tables and a soft, calming colour scheme.

Captain & Cook's convenient location next to St Mary's Church, close to Horncastle's market square, and its ample free car parking make it a popular spot with locals and out-of-town folk alike, who pop in for everything from a morning coffee to gift shopping. The wide selection of speciality produce - including cheeses, fine teas and coffees, and olive oils and balsamic vinegars on tap - makes this place a must for those looking for a present for a foodie friend. The Captain & Cook team can even put together a personalised hamper made to your specifications, and gift-wrapping is free of charge. Lunches are freshly made each day, and the menu changes regularly to ensure even frequent visitors (of which there are many) will find something new to try.

Many of the ingredients used are sourced locally, including Maud Foster Mill flour, free-range eggs from a nearby farm, and local fruit, vegetables and meat. Whether you plump for a homemade quiche or tart, a flavoursome frittata, fishcakes with fresh salad, or the house speciality rarebit, you can expect the very best quality. Dietary requirements are also very well catered for, with plenty of delicious gluten-free dishes and cakes, as well as options for coeliacs and vegetarians.

Homemade pastries and other sweet treats - including the popular fruity Pavlova - and teas, coffees and soft drinks are served throughout the day. You can also pre-order a quiche, Pavlova or whole cake. Captain & Cook is a lovely place to take a break if you're out and about in Horncastle, but, thanks to its wide selection of food, drink and homewares, is also a destination in itself
