The Bear Inn (restaurant review), Stock, Chelmsford, Essex

The Bear Inn at Stock seafood starter

The Bear Inn at Stock seafood starter

We have been to the Bear Inn in Stock three times now, and have really enjoyed it. In the winter, the interior is welcoming and cosy, with plenty of space to eat in the bar area or more formally in the restaurant. We prefer the bar, as we like the informal seating! In the summer, the outside area extends from alfresco on the patio, to well spaced bench seating around the large pond. It is so peaceful out there, with ducks mooching about and a nice ‘country feel’, even though it is so close to some major Essex Towns.

The food is traditional and very good with great choices of seasonal produce, fish, meat and vegetarian. To compliment this, there’s a fine choice of wines, including a fantastic New Zealand Sauvignon Blanc and some great reds, like Rioja Reserva, Chianti Classico and Fleurie.

We have been for lunch and dinner and it has always been relaxed and friendly. The seafood starters and soups have been splendid, and the Ribeye steak is to die for! The chef really knows his flavours and techniques in the kitchen! At lunch one time we had a burger, and even that was top quality.

This reminds me, I must go back there soon 🙂
