MICHELIN Guide’s Point Of View

This restaurant’s unusual name originates from the 12C Dunmow Flitch Trials, which awarded a flitch of bacon to married couples who could swear not to have regretted their marriage for a year and a day! It’s a pretty place, set in an equally attractive village, and is run by experienced chef-owner Tim Allen.

Head past the local drinkers in the bar and into the long, narrow dining room. Concise menus showcase top quality produce from Cornwall (the seafood) and the West Coast of Scotland, and the creative modern dishes have a refined yet unfussy style. To really get close to the action, book the two-seater kitchen counter.

Two Big Green Eggs cater for summer BBQs on the enclosed rear terrace and the old Citroën van is a fully-stocked bar. Contemporary bedrooms are boldly decorated and come with wet rooms.
