“Consistently friendly service”
Reviewed 16 April 2014

We often go here and love trying lots of different things from the menu. My husband and I usually go on a Friday evening with our 9 year old daughter. They are always very accommodating if we want to adapt a particular meal. We usually like sitting in the front of the restaurant, but in warmer weather there is a walled garden out the back which is very relaxed. For a relaxed meal where you can order anything from a sandwich to a burger to a 3 course meal this is the perfect place.

“Excellent meals and service”
Reviewed 12 April 2014

Further my earlier review, we have now revisited Musketeers, again on a Saturday at lunch time, and, this time, we sat in the rear, more relaxing, restaurant type area, as opposed to the cafe type area with which one is met on entry.

Again we were impressed with the friendly, efficient, industrious staff and the ample, tasty food. Although we had starters, there was really no need, in view of the size of our main courses. Alas, we still had no room for a sweet. Perhaps, we could indulge by having a sweet, and foregoing the starters, on our next visit.

From our experience, I have no hesitation in recommending Musketeers which is an ideal venue when you are hungry, and wish to eat in a non pretentious environment. It also seems to be a popular venue for those just wanting a drink and a snack, and is very conveniently situated on Gt Dunmow High Street.

Very well done and many thanks to the Musketeers' Staff and the Proprietors.

Footnote – We paid our third visit to Musketeers at lunch time today (the 12th April). We refrained from having starters, and enjoyed our plentiful main courses, followed by summer berries cheesecake which is delicious!!

Some photos are attached.

“Ruined Mother's Day”
Reviewed 30 March 2014

I booked a table for afternoon tea for Mother's Day three weeks in advance. When we got there the place looked dirty, with uncleared tables all over the place. We were led to a table that was very cramped. When the waitress came over and asked what drinks we wanted we said we had booked afternoon tea she said this was not in the 'book' and we would have to have cakes from the bar. Mum ordered tea and the tea pot was totally useless and poured hot tea over her lap! We left immediately still having to pay for the tea! Awful service!

“I miss this wonderful place, it's yummy food and friendly owner & staff”
Reviewed 14 March 2014

My hubby & I and our 2 dogs lived in Dunmow from 2005 to 2011. Musketeers became a firm favourite for the four of us on a regular basis for the time we were there. Food always delicious, service warm and welcoming (dogs always given sausages and water ) and the dining areas in and out were always pristine. The owner always gave great thought and care to his restaurant on every level. Always kept the menu and specials interesting and exciting. Living in Canada now but when I am home, Musketeers is a must do! Highly recommend for all to go, eat, drink and be merry :-D
