The Willow & Brook
The Willow & Brook in Apethorpe is a handsome village dining pub.
The menu is deliberately short but well chosen, featuring several locally sourced ingredients. We enjoyed a deeply satisfying plate of slow-braised beef, dauphinoise potatoes, roasted root vegetables and herb dumplings. The sausages with wholegrain mustard mash, kale and onion gravy were equally enjoyable.
There’s a good wine selection and a pleasing range of locally brewed cask ales.
