We took a client here for dinner and it was very good. Not too busy on a Tuesday evening but not dead. Service was good and the food exceeded our expectations. I'd go back and would recommend it as a good local restaurant.

Hi chrissyg42017, What a wonderful review! So pleased to hear you felt utterly spoilt - maybe book up when you don't have to rush off for the school and and add on our Bottomless Prosecco option - always good for a girly catch up. Amy

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.
