1-3 Silver Street, Stansted, CM24 8HA
Located a convenient ten minutes from Stansted Airport, Linden House provides the perfect calming oasis for busy travellers and relaxed locals. Nestled in the historic village of Stansted Mountfitchet, this 19th-century boutique hotel offers a unique experience with à la carte dining, great-value lunch offers and private dining. The restaurant at Linden House features modern British dishes prepared with fresh, carefully sourced, seasonal ingredients. The à la carte menu and lunch menu change regularly, with emphasis placed on the quality of the ingredients. From the à la carte, choose from a range of finessed starters such as classic moules marinières or Parma ham salad with feta, figs, pine nuts and balsamic vinegar. Main dishes such as marinated rump of lamb served alongside braised lentils and vegetable crisps highlight the chefs’ masterful culinary skills. Vegetarian diners can enjoy a hearty treat of fried potato gnocchi with roast butternut squash, spinach and courgette. The dessert menu puts a spin on many classic favourites, and you may expect to find the likes of sticky toffee pudding with salted popcorn and vanilla ice cream, and lemon and honey posset with fresh raspberries and ginger nut crust gracing the menu. If you feel like stopping by for an on-the-go lunch or fancy enjoying a delicious evening meal before watching a show, the lunch and pre-theatre menu features many favourites from the à la carte and will set you back just £12.50 for two courses or £15 for three. Add a final flourish at the end of your meal with one of the after-dinner cocktails, all of which have been tailored to pair perfectly with the selection of dishes on the menu. An Irish coffee or espresso Martini will provide you with a caffeinated kick, or try an Old Fashioned to wind down as you relax with friends. With many events taking place throughout the year, Linden House is becoming the go-to venue in Mountfitchet. Why not pop in to enjoy 50 per cent off wine and cheese on selected evenings, or enjoy one of the live saxophone or piano nights? Be sure to check the website for information on upcoming events.
