For those who think tapas involves nothing more than a few Spanish meats and cheeses, The Flitch House will make you think again. Head chef Jacky Whiffen has taken the tapas format and reinvented it for the British palate, so you’ll find no tiny portions of sliced tomato and balsamic here. Instead diners are rewarded with a veritable feast served in miniature pots and pans on platters.

We started with the wonderfully inventive beef on a stone which is exactly that – thick slices of meat served blue, and cooked to your own preference on a sizzling slab. Our sharing selection of mains followed. From an impressive and diverse list, we sampled beer-battered fish bites, honey- and mustard-glazed sausages, spicy patatas bravas and seared tuna with sesame dressing. We accompanied these delightful offerings with roasted red pepper hummus and toasted pitta bread, plus some moreish tempura vegetables with fennel and ginger yoghurt. Ending the meal on a sweet note, we devoured the chocolate mousse with raspberry sorbet and deconstructed cheesecake, and recommend that future guests do exactly the same.

There’s live music every Wednesday, and an over-21 policy brings together a mixed and very sociable crowd. If you’re looking for modern tapas or just something a bit different to the usual Essex establishment, The Flitch House is for you. You’ll fall in love with this central Dunmow spot and its emphasis on great wine and sharing.
