Set just a stone’s throw from the river Humber, the restaurant at Winteringham Fields has won a wealth of awards, including a Michelin star and four AA rosettes. Colin McGurran and his team of chefs create an exceptional range of delicious, innovative dishes that showcase locally sourced ingredients. At lunchtime, the à la carte menu offers highlights such as gin- and dill-cured sea trout to start, which can be followed by succulent honey-roasted duck breast with celeriac purée, Brussels sprouts and foie gras sauce. The eight-course evening menu showcases fresh fish, game and locally grown vegetables from the surroundings; the menu reads like a love letter to the area. For dessert, what could be better than caramelised lemon tart with sharp blackberry sorbet and candied pine nuts? Every dish is beautifully presented, reflecting the chefs’ passion. A menu has also been created for those with dietary requirements, so there’s something to tempt everyone. Winteringham Fields also boasts a number of luxurious rooms, with the beautiful 16th-century main house featuring original oak beams – there’s no better place to stay. With excellent food and service to match, it’s clear to see why Winteringham Fields is held in such high esteem.
