SquareMeal Review of The Bell Inn - Stanford-le-Hope

With an atmosphere that's like a cross between a Paris wine bar & a London pub, it’s no wonder that this lively pub-brasserie-restaurant is considered by many to be ‘the best place to eat in the area by far’. The menu changes daily, offering comfort food served with European service & style, & the staff are particularly knowledgeable about the eclectic wine list. The ravenous can devour pan-fried chicken livers on ham hock & foie gras ballottine with sauce gribiche & crispy pancetta ahead of roast rack of venison with root vegetables & cassis sauce, while those with lighter appetites can nibble a salad of Cornish crab with guacamole & pink grapefruit vinaigrette; in between there’s fishcakes with poached egg & hollandaise. Booking in the restaurant is essential, while tables in the brasserie are available on a first come, first served basis. The building itself dates from the 15th century & displays a wealth of ancient beams & timbers as well as open fires in winter.

I can honestly say we consider this to be the only Essex restaurant that offers good quality, inventive food in a convivial, sociable atmosphere. Friendly, knowledgeable staff, seasonal ingredients (local where possible) and excellent, good value wines (and beers), make this a must-go. My sister had a visitor from Singapore recently, so she brought her here rather than an overpriced London gastropub and neither of them were disappointed.

My husband and I just love the Bell Inn. I consider it to be my favourite restaurant. We have never had a bad meal at the Bell and the service is always great. I love the olives and the bread on the table when you arrive. We try not to go too often because it makes it more of a treat. The food is varied and well thought out and offers something for every palate and never fails to be interesting. Just the thought of going back is making my mouth water!
