We went on a Saturday night with family and it was absolutely delicious. The veggie options were amazing (someone had obviously given them thought) and beautifully cooked. The waiting staff were all great. Will definitely be going back soon.

Thank you for the question we are a 10 minute drive from the main high street. We have ample parking on site also. We probably aren't the closest restaurant to the centre to be honest. We hope you both have a lovely day... More

Description
Hi and welcome to the bridge street lounge and grill. Situated 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. From the best cooked steaks to our hand crafted desserts, our food will certainly impress. After your meal join us at the bar and enjoy one of our fine fresh fruit cocktails made by our professional mixologists.
