Knife and Cleaver - Houghton Conquest

The Grove, Houghton Conquest, Bedfordshire, MK45 3LA
Find this good gastro-pub with rooms, housed in a 17th century inn, in the centre of the village, opposite All Saints Church.
You can eat at the bar, the pretty garden or in the purpose-built conservatory restaurant.
The kitchen is proud that nearly everything from chutneys to ice creams is made in-house. Fish is a speciality, and has its own daily-changing menu.
Early summer brought ‘Dorset Crab Cakes with Coconut, Chili & Ginger’; ‘Crayfish & Lobster Cocktail; ‘Shaved English Asparagus with Dandelion & Fennel Salad’ and ‘Salt Beef & Green Bean Salad with Treacle & Mustard Dressing’ among the starters.
‘Aubergine Gnocchi with Plum Tomato & Basil Salsa’; ‘Platter of Native Seafood’; ‘Chicken Breast & Poached Thigh with Sweetcorn & Spring Onion Risotto & Crispy Bacon’; ‘Taste of Pork – loin, glazed rib & black pudding with paprika potatoes & apple sauce’; ‘Woburn Rump of Beef & Mini Kidney Pie with Baked Mash, Pea Purée & Heritage Carrots’ – plus Pizza’s and various Steaks from the Grill listed among the mains.
If you still have room, you might be tempted by ‘Chocolate & Vanilla Spotted Dick with Sabayon Sauce’; ‘Banoffi Cheesecake with Caramelised Banana’ or their selection of Farmhouse Cheeses.
Smart casual dress necessary.
