Testimonials

“This was our first visit to The Spotted Dog and I am pleased to say it will not be our last. The food was great, the service friendly and unobtrusive and a totally pleasant experience.”
“My wife and I were invited to The Spotted Dog by a friend to celebrate their anniversary. As it was on a Monday evening I didn’t expected the restaurant to be busy, but I was wrong. Every table was taken, so that says a great deal about this place! The food was epic. It was fresh, beautifully presented with wonderful flavours. I would especially recommend the duck and the cod wrapped in Parma ham. Both were utterly delicious. The service too was fabulous. Nothing was too much trouble and the waitresses were charming and very engaging. The wine list is also very good. In terms of value for money, The Spotted Dog cannot be beaten. Starters are around £5-6, and entrees range between £15-24, but the food is the best I have ever eaten in a pub. Treat yourself and book a table sometime!”
“Was recommended by friends and was surprised to find out it was only ten minutes away. From taking the booking to calling us a cab the service from the staff was impeccable. Food was Michelin quality we all enjoyed every course, I would recommend the calves liver and bacon with Horseradish mash. Wines are great quality as well. A great find and will definitely be returning on a regular basis.”
Our relatives took as to this little gem of a restaurant sometime ago and we are now addicted! We have been back several time now and it is simply phenomenal! Without doubt, the best restaurant we have ever been to in Essex. Really looking forward to going again tomorrow.
