The Bull & Willow Room
With a dedicated team of talented chefs and a charming and welcoming front of house, managed by the delightful Umesh Sewnundun, The Bull & Willow Room has maintained its reputation for outstanding food and unrivalled service. Sleek furniture, ornate lighting and mirrors are combined within the classy dark oak in this 16th-century gem. The bright, elegant space of the Willow Room is available for private lunch and dinner parties as well as wedding receptions. It is renowned for hosting exclusive dining experiences as well as regular cabaret
and music evenings.
A wide range of wine is available by the glass to complement your choice from the menu in the laid-back space of the Bull’s award-winning restaurant. Perhaps begin with the freshly prepared bread board as you peruse the extensive food and drink menus.
Dishes are exquisitely presented and crafted using the finest local ingredients. To start, the sautéed mushrooms with tarragon cream on toast comes highly recommended, and the salmon rillette with horseradish cream and beetroot is equally impressive. Follow this with your choice of tempting mains; perhaps the oven baked hake served on a chorizo and bean stew, or the 10oz rib-eye steak cooked perfectly to your liking. Vegetarians can indulge in the likes of thyme and garlic infused grilled aubergine served on bean cassoulet. Children are made welcome with a separate menu. Owner Satin Singh was born and raised in Delhi and brings an array of authentic Indian dishes to the menu. Be sure to try the Mughlai Karahi Gosht, slow cooked lamb with onions, tomatoes, ginger and garlic, or the delicious chicken tikkas and mouth-watering lamb seekh kebabs. A delicious range of sandwiches and jacket potatoes are also served at the bar – perfect after a long walk in the beautiful surrounding North Essex countryside. If you’re looking to stay in the area, The Bull & Willow Room’s cottage has four feature rooms that are as luxurious and smartly appointed as the restaurant. Best of all, after a peaceful rest the breakfast in the morning is sure to impress. Be sure to visit the website where you’ll find a calendar packed full of exciting events and dining experiences.
