In an ideal world, every village would have a pub and restaurant like Caunton Beck. It's a place for all seasons - guests can relax with a drink on the suntrap patio during the summer or recline in the warmth of the cosy bar or smart, spacious restaurant during the colder months. Caunton Beck is large and accommodating, which is just as well, because the quality of its food is certainly no secret. The regularly changing menu features a creative mix of dishes inspired by both modern European and classic British cuisine, all made using the best seasonal ingredients. On the night we visited, choices included rack of Derbyshire lamb with braised tongue, slow-braised ox cheek Bourguignon, and honey-and-soy glazed Gressingham duck breast with Asian slaw.

We began with warming cream of white onion and tarragon soup, and succulent pan-seared scallops with rich black pudding and truffle-crushed peas. These were followed by equally superb mains of tender confit pork belly with champ mash, apple and cider compote, black pudding and fresh veg, and chicken and chorizo spiced Greek salad with baby gem lettuce, feta, olives and mint yoghurt. Indulgent English raspberry ripple semifreddo and white chocolate and summer berry creme brulée rounded off proceedings in style. A special mention must also go to the exceptional cheeseboard, which includes a selection of fine English cheese with spiced apple chutney, maple-glazed sticky walnuts and biscuits. The service was first-class throughout our meal, and there was no shortage of refreshments, with a bar well stocked with quality beers and a top-notch wine list
