Behind the new venture is Andrew Leonard, the former Mayor of Louth, who has run the successful clubhouse at Kenwick Golf Club for many years.

He has joined forces with up-and-coming chef Michael Bullamore, who formerly ran the Queen’s Head at Legbourne.

Michael has already gained a wide reputation for the quality of his cooking with recognition in both the Michelin and Good Food Guides.

Mr Leonard has also taken on the elegant 18th century meeting rooms next door – the grade II listed Mansion House.

Both buildings have been restored, making them available for the public to enjoy once more.

The new restaurant will be open from Wednesday to Saturday, catering for up to 12 diners per night.

Each Wednesday, 14 Upgate will offer a four course taster menu for £25, and on Thursdays, Fridays and Saturdays, a seven course taster menu will be served at £45 per head.

Mr Leonard said: “We are keen to offer the very best food at affordable prices in a very special setting in the heart of Louth.”
