“There is nothing in the world so irresistibly contagious as laughter and good humour.” — Charles Dickens, A Christmas Carol

And where better to enjoy laughter, good humour and great food this festive season than around a table at Winteringham Fields? Located a skipping stone’s throw from the Humber, Head Chef Colin McGurran’s Michelin-recommended restaurant has become one of the area’s, if not the country’s, best foodie sanctuaries.

Befitting its 16th century old stone exterior, the restaurant itself is a snug warren of dining and private rooms. Furnished in a rustic, country house theme, with roaring fires, antiques and curiosities, and earthy, warming tones, it’s an idyllic place to relax over the Christmas period.

Full of natural pairings, inspired twists and wonderfully warming flavours, their festive lunch menus play out over three and six acts. Featuring a variety of dishes, from game terrine and quince membrillo to navarin of lamb with root vegetables grown on their own humble farm, Winteringham Fields promises a memorable experience that will stay with you long after your last bite.

Their dessert menu is a sweet-tooth’s fantasy, with both indulgent and comforting desserts such as apple mille-feuille, vanilla crème, salted caramel and blackberry & almond frangipane. For those with a more savoury preference, sampling the excellent cheese trolley along with a warming glass of mulled wine is a must.

For the most curious culinary pilgrim, the eight-course festive surprise menu is full of unexpected twists and unputdownable flavours. Inspired by the changing of the seasons and appropriately accompanied by the master sommelier’s wine selection, the menu is sure to surprise even the most well-travelled palates.

Of course, the culinary experience alone is not the only string to Winteringham Fields’ bow. This sheltered, converted barnhouse and eight-acre plot boasts 15 luxurious five-star rooms, first-class facilities and stunning views of natural beauty at every turn – perfect for a magical Christmas getaway.
