Hide at Tickton Grange

Tickton Beverley HU17 9SH
Chef David Nowell has been at Tickton Grange country house hotel almost as long as the family that owns the house, and if not quite part of the furniture he's certainly a stalwart of the regional dining scene. Driver of the trend to use locally sourced ingredients, he's influenced many local chefs with contemporary British menus that namecheck growers and suppliers and celebrate the sheer range of great food available in these parts. Staal's smoked rainbow trout with watercress pesto, shin of beef braised in Wold Top ale, dressed crab from Brid with crab apples from the Tickton garden or beach-caught seabass served with local air-dried sausage – all it takes is a welcoming drink and a reassuring read of the menu to know you're in safe hands. We think this is astonishingly good stuff, at less than astonishing prices, while if you're looking for a light lunch or afternoon tea in the country, Hide would be a top choice too – the large, grand sitting room-bar known as The Library has an open fire and beautiful views over the Wolds. If the restaurant name 'Hide' puzzles, it's a nod to the owners' family history as shoemakers and leather workers – but the place is certainly not hidden, given its exalted status on the local dining circuit. Reservations are advised.
