Hi and welcome to the bridge street lounge and grill. Lying 2 miles from Chelmsford in the quaint Norman village of Writtle, we aim to bring you the finest dining. Totally renovated and tastefully restructured with no expense spared, we have transformed the once aging Cock and Bell public house into a high class restaurant. Why not try a steak cooked on our Inka grill or a carefully selected dessert by our pastry chef. After your meal join us at the bar and enjoy one of our fine cocktails made by our professional bartenders.

We had our anniversary dinner at Bridge Street which was wonderful. The ambiance is upbeat and stylish and while the restaurant was full, it was roomy and private enough for us to have a romantic dinner. The food was excellent and the service even better.

My family and I went here for lunch on a Sunday for a birthday celebration. The menu was excellent - and when our food came, it was even better. The presentation, along with the taste, was superb. The service is what really made our visit though. Our waitress was so helpful and really couldn't do enough for us. My whole... More

We ate here for lunch but ate off the a la carte menu, and I have to say, it was the best meal I've eaten locally in forever! Started with a cocktail which was delicious, and the one glass of wine with my meal was equally good. Both our starters and main courses were cooked to perfection and really good... More

We visited the Bridge Street Lounge and Grill with friends for my husband's birthday. The atmosphere was very relaxed, tables nicely spaced out. Each course was absolutely delicious. The service was excellent, nothing was too much trouble. We will definitely go back to this restaurant, highly recommended.
