Michelin inspectors are repeatedly impressed with the quality food offer here, with six hostelries making it in their ‘Eating Out In Pubs’ guide for 2017. Topping the class as the inspectors’ choice in the East Midlands are the Olive Branch at Clipsham and the Marquess of Exeter in Lyddington, closely followed by The Wheatsheaf at Greetham, Finches Arms at Hambleton, Old White Hart at Lyddington and the Jackson Stops Inn at Stretton.
