Knife and Cleaver - Houghton Conquest

The Grove, Houghton Conquest, Bedfordshire, MK45 3LA
Find this excellent gastro-pub, 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 'Sautéed Scallops with Pancetta & Garlic Mash, Creamy Shallot & Thyme Sauce'; 'Rock Oysters' (in various guises); 'Eggs Benedict' and 'Wild Mushrooms & Devilled Lambs Kidneys on Hot Buttered Toast' among the starters.

'Grilled Whole South Coast Plaice with Chili-Marinated Prawns & Chervil Butter'; 'Platter of Native Seafood'; 'Thai Green Chili Chicken Curry'; 'Pan-Fried Calves Liver with Caramelised Red Onion Mash, Crispy Pancetta & Onion Jus'; 'Fettucine Pasta with Sun-Dried Tomato Sauce & Roasted Sweet Peppers' and 'Char-Grilled Ribeye Steak with Hand-Cut Chips & Coarse-Grain Mustard Sauce' listed among the mains.

If you still have room, you might be tempted by 'Sticky Toffee Pudding'; 'Chocolate Cheesecake with Chocolate Sauce' or their selection of Farmhouse Cheeses.

Smart casual dress necessary.
