We take great pride in the locally sourced and seasonal ingredients that go into each and every single dish we serve here at Healing Manor Hotel and in our pub The Pig & Whistle on our new Autumn Menu.
Venison & Pork Scotch egg is our take on one of our most popular starters for autumn. The venison adds a rich flavour to this pub classic and is served with a sweet fig and onion marmalade to compliment.
The Pig & Whistle and Healing Manor are located on the edge of Grimsby and the Lincolnshire Wolds. This dish encompasses the best of the sea and land, with a flavoursome combination of King Scallops from Premier Seafood and Lamb. The lamb adds a little earthiness to the sweet scallops and textures of carrot help to combine the two flavours and break up the soft textures of scallop and lamb.
This dish features ‘carrot bark’ and is made by roasting whole carrots in an oven and removing the skin whole. The skin is then laid out on baking paper and dehydrated to create a crisp-like texture. Delicate morsels of samphire are added to the dish to season as their salty taste pairs perfectly with the meat and fish.
Salt Baked Beetroot from our Autumn Menu.
This dish is a homage to all of the ingredients we have locally. Beetroot is sourced from Coven Garden just outside Louth and is served in various textures. Pickled beetroot is thinly sliced and salt bake beetroot is served in chunks. The dish is finished with pickled walnuts, whipped goats cheese and watercress. Walnuts are picked and pickled from walnut trees located in the grounds here at Healing Manor and a combination or nasturtiums and edible flowers are picked from our gardens.
Other starters from our Autumn Menu include Cod Cheek Scampi served with pickled clams and tartar sauce. All of our fish is delivered each morning, fresh from Grimsby Docks and companies including; Oscar Cleve, Premier Seafoods or Alfred Enderby.
A pub classic is our duck-liver pâté served with cherry and Lincolnshire Plumb Bread and our potted beef with Yorkshire pudding and onion gravy is back on the menu for winter.
Whilst we still have a wide selection of dishes to choose from, we’ve changed to way our menu is presented. We now offer an a la carte menu and a pub/bar menu. The a la carte features all of the seasonal dishes which we change according to produce being available seasonally and locally and our pub/bar menu features some seasonal dishes and all of the classics such as; beef bourgeon, fish and chips, burgers, steaks, our famous superfood salad and some lighter bites and sharers.
