We found The Secret Garden Bistro occupying an unassuming spot among the shops on Maldon High Street. A rustic and charming dining space greeted us as we stepped inside, with chic wallpaper, pretty fairy lights, exposed beams and a large stone fireplace all adding to a characterful setting. A large skylight dappled the venue with natural sunlight and allowed for lovely sky views.

The food we tried was fresh, simple and honest, and the portion sizes ensured we didn't leave hungry. To start, we shared the mini baked Camemberts - one with thyme and the other with sundried tomatoes and capers - served with local chutney and toasted ciabatta. For my main, I opted for the hearty roast winter vegetable Wellington with sautéed new potatoes and creamy Mornay sauce, and my companion had the seared loin of venison with kale, potato hash, wild mushrooms and blackberry Port jus. For dessert, we rewarded ourselves with a white chocolate brownie with vanilla ice cream and a silky Mars Bar cheesecake.
