Great Limber Inn celebrates extensive refurbishment

Celebrations to mark the extensive refurbishment of a luxury inn and restaurant were hosted by the Earl and Countess of Yarborough.

Invited guests from the business community joined them at the New Inn, Great Limber. The Grade II-listed building, in the heart of the Brocklesby Estate, has undergone a dramatic transformation.

Ten luxury bedrooms and a conference facility have been created while the restaurant offers exquisite dining. The bar offers a cosy and convivial place for drinks. It is being managed by Lisa and Ian Matfin in partnership with the Brocklesby Estate.

Lisa says: “It was a most successful launch and we’re grateful to the Earl and Countess for hosting it.

“There’s been an enormous amount of hard work to get to this point but we’re enjoying seeing that pay off.

“We had some very positive feedback on the night and we’ve also enjoyed some wonderful reviews from those who have stayed or experienced the fine dining in our restaurant.” Managing Director of the Brocklesby Estate, Kit Read, was pleased with the launch, which included drinks and canapés.

“Lord and Lady Yarborough were delighted to see so many people at the New Inn and were encouraged by the favourable comments,” Mr Read said.

“They have taken a personal interest in the extensive changes and, indeed, have led the project from day one. They feel Lisa and Ian are creating a special venue which was much needed in this area.

“The reputation is starting to spread and some are travelling miles to experience the food and warm welcome.

“In terms of the accommodation, it is perfectly located for business use, being close to Humberside Airport, the Humber Bank and only a short drive away from the ports of Grimsby, Immingham and Hull.”

Head Chef Ian spent his formative years with Gordon Ramsay at the Aubergine restaurant and Raymond Blanc at Le Manoir aux Quat’saison.

This was followed by eleven years with Michael Caines at Gidleigh Park in Chagford, and subsequently at his hotel, Manchester Abode.

Wife Lisa has also spent her career in the hospitality industry.
