SquareMeal Review of Baumann's Brasserie

This cosy restaurant is in a 16th-century building overlooking the Coggeshall clock tower, & is where Mark Baumann serves an up-to-date brasserie menu. Braised ham hock terrine, buttered crumpet & gentleman’s relish, or skate & leek pastry pithivier, mild curried creamed parsnips could be served ahead of seared rib eye of beef, garlic rubbed mushroom & green pepper butter or sautéed calf’s liver, salardaise potatoes & Barolo onion gravy. Alsacienne pear & almond tart with cinnamon crème fraiche & warm waffle with white chocolate mousse & black cherry compote, both make a great finish. Ceilings are low but a wall of windows combines with white linen table cloths & cheery staff to provide a breezy ambience.

A very big fan of this brassiere and when I spotted the offer available through Square Meal knew another trip was needed. The food is great and would happily spend a fortune more on it. I like the quirky nature of the whole establishment from the menu to paintings to differing chairs. The service levels have improved but could still do with some work, for example I ordered a glass of red wine to come with my main course and after 5 minutes of waiting with my main course I had to remind the staff of this request. There where only 4 other tables in, so not like it was the most difficult task to remember. Will have no qualms about returning and would happily eat every night of the week. The level of both quality and standard of food is unbeatable within this area and I would happily recommend this to anyone.

Saw the discounted offer and decided to give this restaurant a go. The mixed reviews were a little off-putting but we arrived slightly early and were welcomed warmly with some prompt drinks and complimentary canapes of salmon mouse ice cream cones (delicious) and felt happily at ease from the moment we sat down. We had a lovely table at the front of house which was a four man table, laid out nicely for two of us. Not sure we would have had this if it had been busy but a really nice touch. The menu was rather different to most and I commented on this to our waitress who took great pride in the quirkiness of the recipes. Some people have commented on here, disapprovingly, about the mis-matched furniture and general decor but my partner and I thought it was great and fitted in perfectly with the general feel and ethos of the restaurant and menu. For starters I had the baked apple filled with brie and my partner was recommended the tapas which we both thought were excellent. Portions were more generous than we were expecting and stolen ideas for dinner parties were in full flow. The main course came within approving time, not too early, not too late and were again both excellent. I had the fillet steak, cooked to a perfect medium rare (I agree with a previous comment on here about the preference for a little more information on where the beef came from), and my partners duck (rolled on liquorice coal) was superb. Desserts came in the form of a cheese board (6 cheeses) and a chocolate mousse. The cheeses were of a good selection and I thought the right size for the end of a meal. Some have commented on them being too small but I was very comfortably full and would not have wanted any more. My partner loved the mousse but could not finish it due to the richness and an already full belly. Finished off with some espresso's which came with a few little treats and I had a brandy too which came resting on another glass of boiling water to warm it up, which was a nice touch. The specials were mostly fish and they all sounded good, it seems fish is probably the speciality of the restaurant and we shall definately be returning to sample. In all honesty, I felt I could have tried and enjoyed any of the dishes on the menu, not something I could say of most resaurants. Personally, I think this is a little gem of a restaurant. I admit to not having tried in when the infamous chef was resident but if you like something a little bit different we would highly recommend giving this brasserie a try!

A little bit of Langans in essex ? It has the electric atmosphere and buzz of the best lively and entertaining Bistro's… We went there on saturday night with four friends. Starters ranged from the traditional but perfect prawn cocktail, to foie gras creme brulee – the best starter i have ever had ,anywhere ,ever. Mains were cooked to perfection, and were generous and delicate at the same time, puddings were huge and delightful ! 6 people, 8 starters, 6 mains, 6 puddings, 2 huge cheesboards, lashings and lashings of wine, coffee's and liquors. Whatever you think the bill was, you are wrong…it was lower Quite simply the best restaurant outside of London, and even then, better than most in London.
