With two AA rosettes and a Michelin Bib Gourmand, The Duncombe Arms has plenty to offer. Inside, you’ll find a charming interior with roaring fires and an oak-panelled dining room, while outside the beautiful garden includes an open fire pit. Impeccable service is coupled with head chef Jake Boyce’s award-winning food. His desire to please his diners runs through everything he does, from making his own ice cream to hand-whipping butter – it’s truly the finer details that set this tremendous establishment apart.

Expect an ever-changing seasonal menu and imaginative dishes cooked with flair using the finest local produce. My starter of truffle cauliflower soup served with house sourdough was a sheer delight, while my partner’s raw scallop ceviche accompanied by yuzu, black radish, olive crumb and ponzu dressing was an amazing combination of flavour and texture. To follow, his fish pie with a heavenly soft-boiled egg in the middle was a wise choice and was declared perfect. I opted for the succulent breast of guinea fowl with king oyster mushroom, leek, and kohlrabi, and couldn’t applaud it enough. Our desserts of sticky toffee pudding and peanut butter parfait ensured we finished on a sweet note. No matter the occasion, at The Duncombe Arms you can be assured of an exceptional meal and attentive service within beautiful surrounds.
