Our county has some of the best butchers and bakers in the country and this year over 400 entries were taken for the fourteen categories of the 2016 Lincolnshire Poacher Competition, which was held in October.
This month I was invited to Laguna Verde at Burton Waters, Lincoln. I’ve had many a pleasant evening at Burton Waters before, so I was especially looking forward to returning.
Belchford is set within one of my favourite parts of Lincolnshire, the gently rolling Wolds to the north of Horncastle and we had a lovely early autumn evening drive out there for our visit. You can’t miss the Blue Bell as you drive along the main street, sitting prominently on the left, and yes, there is a handsome Blue Bell, which was swaying in the breeze, on its tall frame near the entrance.
