With a wealth of hidden gems across the county – from restaurants to produce – there is a piece of luxury for everyone to enjoy.

A Michelin Star restaurant in Lincolnshire

Winteringham Fields offers a taste of fine dining just a stone throw away from The Old Granary

Just a half hour drive away down the lovely countryside roads, Winteringham Fields is the first restaurant in Lincolnshire to gain a Michelin star thanks to Colin McGurran’s ‘mastery of flavours and cooking techniques’.

Unique to Winteringham Fields is their ‘One Mile Menu’, which exclusively features food grown on their small farm or sourced from local purveyors, making it a uniquely ‘Lincolnshire’ experience.

If you’re staying for more than one night, we also recommend treating yourself to a trip to the Hope and Anchor. Situated on the Humber estuary, this cosy establishment was voted the Lincolnshire County Winner at the National Pub and Bar Awards 2019

Slawomir Mikolajczyk, Chef Patron of the Hope and Anchor, was a previous head chef at Winteringham Fields, and has worked with the biggest names in the industry, including Tom Kerridge and Gordon Ramsey. This traditional pub and restaurant’s unique and timeless take on food makes it a must-visit if you’re staying in Lincolnshire.

Spectacular views & Mouth-wateringly tasty produce

Located halfway between Lincoln and York, luxury is never too far away from The Old Granary. A drive over the Humber Bridge, for instance, not only provides spectacular views, but also fantastic delights from the quaint market town of Beverly. 

Beverly has many lovely restaurants and boutique shops for the fashion conscious. The Westwood restaurant, in particular, offers a fine dining experience as one of East Yorkshire’s most popular places to dine.

Lincolnshire boasts a wealth of local, luxury produce. Pipers Crisps, a luxury crisp brand, uses locally grown potatoes to create the highest quality and best-tasting crisps. At the Old Granary, we provide all our guests with Pipers Crisps in their welcome hamper!

Grimsby fishing docks produce some of the highest quality fish, too. Although luxury and Grimsby may not traditionally go hand in hand for some of you, Alfred Enderby proves otherwise! Their traditional smokehouse creates award-winning smoked fish, which is simply delicious!

Our county is famous for its sausages, with the sage and black pepper Lincolnshire sausage one of the Nation’s favourites. If you want to taste the best of the best, we recommend Redhill Farm Lincolnshire sausages, which were rated in Top 3 sausages in the UK by the BBC Good Food magazine!

With over 250 market stalls selling traditional crafts and stocking fillers, lining the streets around the beautiful Lincoln Cathedral. The market makes for a truly high-quality festive trip for all members of the family.
