A Leicestershire gem: The Stag & Hounds, Burrough on the Hill

Yesterday, I ate at The Stag and Hounds in Burrough on the Hill. It was absolutely superb! Head chef Dom Clarke is a talented guy and his lovely partner Antonia runs front of house with aplomb.

While we were eating, Dom’s new hogget supplier came in for a pint of Parish ale. He grazes his sheep yards away on Burrough Hill, and Parish Brewery is literally next door to the pub. The local-soucing credentials of this pub cannot be questioned!

Before arriving in Leicestershire, Dom was head chef at The Barn at Moor Hall in Lancashire, where he earned a Michelin Bib Gourmand, two AA rosettes, and a ‘Best Newcomer’ award from Lancashire Life magazine.

If you haven’t tried the Stag & Hounds, I can highly recommend a visit.

NB. The lunchtime offer is exceptionally good value: two courses for £20 or three for £23.
