Featured Essex Restaurants
. Le Talbooth
British, Modern restaurant in Dedham
Gun Hill - CO7
The “superb setting” – a picturesque, half-timbered building by the River Stour complete with riverside terrace, which features in paintings by Constable – helps maintain the allure of this classic, famously romantic destination. However, its large loyal following from Essex and beyond also award its updated traditional cuisine consistently high ratings.
. West Mersea Oyster Bar
Fish & seafood restaurant in West Mersea
Coast Rd - CO5
Arguably “a more rounded experience than The Company Shed down the road” – this stripped-back seafront diner is “friendly, good value and busy”; and offers a “great variety of hot and cold fish dishes” (not least superlative oysters, their beds in sight).
British, Modern restaurant in Colchester
11a North Hill - CO1
“Some of the best food in Essex” risks being a double-handed compliment, but this trendy three-year-old is winning ever-more awards and accreditations. The food (chosen from a menu with five sections, ‘garden’, ‘water’, ‘land’, ‘cheese’ and ‘sweet’) provides “a wonderful combination of flavours and the concept here of small plates works really well”.
