We have been meaning to visit for quite some time. We started in the traditional bar which a good range of ales. The swordfish was well kept and we soon decided to have another. We were welcomed to the upstairs part of the restaurant by the fantastic service staff. We noticed the recommended wines were coming in at less than £18 which considering the quality was great value. The choice of starters was great with each of us having many possible options. After having a great deal of deliberation two of our party had the goats cheese risotto and the other members had ballottine of partridge and the rillettes. The mains consisted of mushroom tart, lamb and sweetbreads and the calf liver. Everyone declared the food outstanding in every respect. The thrice cooked chips were a particular highlight. Only two of us managed desserts which were a ice pudding with hazelnut ice cream and I have forgotten the other. All as fantastic as the other courses. Without doubt one of the best meals I have had in essex.
