We say…

The Thatched Cottage restaurant is located in the village of Sutterton, South of Boston. It is situated on Pools Lane, just off the B1397 and is the ultimate place to enjoy some seriously rural, British cuisine. Hosts Marion and Bob Lowrie invite guests to ‘come inside, step back in time, enjoy fine food, ale and wine.’

The restaurant is housed within a beautiful 12th century cottage that has been restored sympathetically, keeping the original features, including the stunning thatched roof, intact. The interior décor is in keeping with the outward appearance of this quaint cottage and the black beams, columns, trusses and bracing contrast with the white panelled walls to create an olde English feel. The red carpet adds warmth and another dimension, making it homely and welcoming.

The quality of food on offer is incredibly high and it all begins with a love of local British produce. All of the meat you find on the menu is delivered to the restaurant as a whole animal from the butcher in Boston and many of the vegetables are locally sourced from Swineshead. The menu changes seasonally and heavily relies on the availability of produce. For starters the deep-fried, brioche crumbed Goats cheese served with a chilli jam and crusty bread, or the Country Pork Pate with toast, dressed leaves and beetroot chutney are good choices. The mains include the classic of fish and chips which features a beer battered haddock served with chunky chips and mushy peas, as well as stuffed and rolled pork belly, slow cooked in white win, garlic and vegetables, served with spinach and rosemary potatoes, and a mouthwatering selection of tender steaks cooked on the grill.

There is a very reasonably priced Bistro dining menu that runs until 6pm but it is the inventive a la carte and Gourmet Menus that the Thatched Cottage has become renowned for. A trip to this restaurant means a step back in time and a truly special dining experience.
