MICHELIN Guide’s Point Of View

The setting in an English country inn might seem slightly at odds with the Nordic food but Ally and Alex’s first business together has been a hit from the start – so much so that securing a table isn’t easy. Enter into the inviting locals bar to a sea of smiling faces and the smell of coal fires, then head through the curtain to a room with just 6 tables and an open kitchen.

Ally is from Northumbria and Alex from Sweden, and Hjem – which means ‘home’ in both their dialects – blends their lives together seamlessly. Precise, original cooking combines a handful of local ingredients with Scandinavian techniques and an element of finesse. The menu is a surprise, with dishes arriving in quick succession and enthusiastically described by the chefs.

Both wine and juice pairings are available, and pristine modern bedrooms complete the picture.
