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.

“No longer there”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 9, 2013

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.

“Dish now closed - a shame”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 23, 2012

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.

“A little overpriced and tired”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 8, 2012

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

“Would have been great . . .”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed July 12, 2012

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!
