The Cakehole

Located a short drive from Grantham in the pretty little village of Barrowby, you will find The Cakehole: a small deli-café with a huge fan base. This place is pleasingly quaint due to its Grade II listed home, and is always abuzz with locals.

Go here for lunch and try the quiche of the day with a delicious cup of homemade soup on the side or one of their deli platters or sandwiches. Better yet, book in advance (way in advance) and join them for one of their exclusive bistro evenings on a Friday or Saturday night. With a maximum of 24 covers and a five course set meal, you will feel like a special guest all evening. The menu is released the week before and although it appears simple, strikes the perfect balance of quality and intrigue. The chef and proprietor Kirk Stubbs really knows how to work his magic in the kitchen.

Local produce and local pride are championed here: expect chutney made in the village, coffee from Nottingham, bread from Hambleton Bakery and many other local heroes.
