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.
