Since taking the helm at the Tilbury, brothers James and Tom Bainbridge have ensured this award-winning restaurant serves up excellent food with a warm welcome, making it a culinary haven for all who visit. Offering an exciting British à la carte menu, as well as set and tasting menus, The Tilbury has an extensive wine list so you are able to find the perfect pairing for your meal, or relax with a drink on the garden terrace in the warmer months.

Every dish is beautifully presented, and the flavour combinations expertly devised by chef Tom give diners a true taste of finesse with each meal. The à la carte menu changes monthly, and inventive starters could include crisp egg paired with crudités, anchovies and anchovy aioli. The kitchen team’s talent for creating innovative flavour and texture combinations is also seen in main course options such as the perfectly balanced cod Bourguignon, based on the rich flavours of the classic beef dish but made using white wine to complement the delicate cod.

Traditionalists will be pleased to see a nod to pub classics, served with a contemporary twist. This section of the menu gives you the chance to tuck into turkey meatballs with mash, creamy turkey gravy and cranberry jam, or sirloin steak with flat mushroom and whipped blue cheese. If you’re looking to share something special, the pig platter for two comprises pork belly, gammon rib-eye, pig hotpot and apple crumble, all accompanied by bacon greens and pork and apple gravy. To finish, be sure to sample the Tilbury’s figgy toffee pudding with toffee sauce and milk ice cream for a signature end to the evening. The set menu is served Tuesday to Thursday for lunch and dinner, as well as Friday and Saturday lunchtimes. It represents fantastic value for money at just £15 for two courses or £19 for three.

On Wednesdays, development nights allow diners to trial a new main course for just £10, and give feedback to aid the development of the dish before it makes it on to the menu – giving the menu a true sense of collaboration between kitchen and customer.
