The long history of the Flitch of Bacon has a new chapter. The restaurant has undergone a sympathetic restoration to become a restaurant with rooms. Chef Daniel Clifford, who lives nearby and is behind the Flitch’s new lease of life, welcomes you.
What awaits you at the Flitch? A relaxed atmosphere in which to enjoy amazing food and a wonderful drinks list with family and friends. Children are more than welcome and we have high chairs for the really little ones! Three charming rooms are available to extend your stay to include breakfast and an opportunity to explore the surrounding countryside.
Behind our beautifully balanced dishes are some wonderfully simple things; ingredients selected at their seasonal best and sourced from farms, growers and suppliers with a genuine passion for what they produce.
Our three sumptuously furnished rooms each bear the name of a rare pig breed. Locally handmade toiletries, big fluffy towels, rich décor, sumptuous textiles and sleep inducing beds await…
Local traditions are always intriguing and none more so than at the Flitch of Bacon. A reference to the Dunmow Flitch can even be found in The Wife of Bath’s Tale within Chaucer’s 14th century Canterbury Tales…
A good pint is at the heart of a pub and the Flitch is no exception, Greene King beers and local guest ales sit alongside Guinness, lagers and an array of spirits for a “single malt moment” or a classic cocktail.
Our wine list is selected to allow us to match the perfect accompaniment to your chosen dishes or for the pure pleasure of drinking wine. Our cellar has many very drinkable wines and extends to fine wines for the connoisseur.
Situated at the side of the pass, the kitchen table seats just two, but provides a view over the pass into the kitchen. Enjoy watching the brigade at work as dishes take shape whilst you dine on the fruits of their labours.
…A flitch of bacon to couples, if they can
satisfy the Judge and Jury of six maidens and six
bachelors that in ‘twelvemonth and a day’, they have
‘not wisht themselves unmarried again’
