Description: Dish Restaurant in the heart of Saffron Walden, between The Common and Audley Park, has been a hit with local food lovers since it opened in 2004. An incredibly high standard, friendly neighbourhood restaurant, Dish features modern European cuisine in an historic setting, the refurbished mint building. During the day, the bright and airy dining room is ideal for cosy catch-ups with friends and their legendary Express Lunch menu is perfect for diners in a hurry. In the evening, Dish is transformed into a relaxed candlelit space, well suited to after-work gatherings and dinner dates. Using locally sourced produce wherever possible, the chefs create simple, full-flavoured dishes like mustard and pepper-crusted steak with dauphinoise potatoes, and crisp king prawn tempura. Dish lures its diners not only with excellent food, but also Mad Mondays with a ridiculously reasonable prix fixe menu, and a super two course pre-cinema menu on Monday, Friday and Saturday.

My friend and I were regular visitors to Dish as was my husband and I and all my family. This was our favourite place to eat in Walden and we are very sorry it has closed.

This restaurant closed in early 2012 - a shame as it was a good choice for proper cooking. So one more independent restaurant in a town dominated by poor pizza/pasta chains.

The wine we got was vinegary and overpriced and the food average. I felt a little ripped off as I left and as usual just said it was OK when they asked. They really should encourage on line feedback like many good confident places do

As returning customers we booked a table for 4 the night before we wanted to dine, they took contact details from us and then on the night our group arrived at the restaurant to discover a note saying they had closed earlier than planned due to a rubbish chef. We went to Lime Tree Court instead which was fantastic!

We had a Groupon voucher, which made our overall bill quite light - even so, drinks (incl cocktails & coffees) still came out very reasonably. We brought our 4 wk old baby and were considerably accomodated by the friendly and thoughtful staff. Food was delish, service was v good. Go into the ladies loo to get a glimpse of the... More

Food was very good for the prices paid, as we booked a deal through Groupon. Although the food was well cooked and very tasty, we thought the set menu was a bit expensive. Drinks, however, were very reasonable. Perhaps not enough choice, unless this is a frequently changing menu. Service was excellent.

We went here for lunch on a Saturday and had quite high hopes. However the experience while not terrible was disappointing. The resturant filled up. The service was slow and unattentive. The food was ok but rather bland and certainly nothing special at all. We felt it was expensive for what it was and there was nothing that would make... More

Four of us shared lunch here on a cold, wet day in May and the experience certainly warmed us all. The ambience was relaxed, the service attentive and the fresh British food was so tasty. We savoured starters of broccoli and stilton soup and crab spaghetti with a lovely warming chilli (both excellent). Our main course was salmon and asparagus... More

I was impressed by the quality of the food and the creative combinations of flavours this restaurant has. The service was of a very high standard and the price was very reasonable.
