Your Best Little Bistro – Old School Dining at Stanwick

A mere five minutes, or three miles, away from us here in Higham Ferrers is The Old School Dining. A contemporary style venue in a traditional environment, but served with a quirky twist.

Lots of work, tasting & sourcing great ingredients happen when they piece together their evening bistro menu. Chefs Claire & Ian are passionate about delivering great food and try hard to use local suppliers to have fantastic food and to support the local economy.

The menu changes every few weeks to use seasonal ingredients; fresh herbs and some of the salads and vegetables are grown at Old School and the garden is packed with great herbs, chillies and salads, just yards away from the kitchen.

Steve and Vern set up the local shop in Stanwick, and a few years ago, moved it across the road into the old school, and opened the bistro alongside it. Great food, an excellent selection of wines, and a blackboard of desserts too tempting to resist. My favourite’s the Affogato, but only if there’s space left to enjoy it.

Evening meals are served Thursday through Saturday from 7.00 pm, there is Sunday Lunch, and breakfast and lunch are served every day from Tuesday to Saturday from 9.00 until 2.30 p.m.
