Regular visitor to Musketeers and shame they have couple of poor reviews - being going there for 4 years and never anything but excellent - food and service and value for money, The sausages are the best they come from Sweetlands butchers and I now buy the same for home! Always a smile and genuine welcome and great home cooked food. Well worthy visit if you are in Dunmow! And if the suns out you have to try the wonderful garden area - best in town
Favorite Dish: Fajitas or the great sausages on breakfasts or in a sandwich
Tapas is really good too

We stayed one night in Great Dunmow last year to catch an early morning flight from Stansted and found there was little choice of reasonably priced places to eat in the evening, so chose this restaurant as a last resort. We found food to be OK, but a bit pricey for what we needed and the place lacked atmosphere, being more like a cafe. We stayed in Great Dunmow again this year for the same reason and found the same thing, so having read the menu displayed outside and seeing a spare table inside we tried to enter the restaurant, only to be confronted by the Manager (we assume) who said in a very rude manner that it was closed for a private function (not mentioned on any notices on the door) and rudely slammed the door in our faces while the waiter/barman laughed at us from behind the bar. Certainly won’t consider visiting this place again.

My colleague went to the Musketeers this morning to get us all some nice sausage sandwhiches for breakfast. When she returned with the sanwhiches, first of all they all looked like kebabs as they were in the same sort of packaging.. not nice paper bags how they would come in any other normal breakfast shop... and second they taste was absolutely vile. The sausages were horrible and of very very bad quality. Only one of us managed to finish the sandwhich where the rest of us threw them all away after two bites. What a waste of money!! And - when i think about the sandwhich now it is still making me feel sick.
I would not eat breakfast from here again!!!
Favorite Dish: NOTHING.

We were working locally and were looking for an unfussy restaurant for a bite to eat and somewhere to sit while we killed some time. We came across Musketeers and it ticked all the boxes.
It was late and there was a "closed" sign on the door but there were still quite a few diners inside, so we gingerly plucked up courage and went in. We were greeted very warmly by the owner and shown to our table.
We soon picked up the friendly local buzz, with the staff addressing the diners by their first names and everyone laughing and joking. It was lovely.
The menu was quite long. It was obvious that this restaurant catered for breakfasts, morning coffee, lunch, afternoon tea and evening meals.
I choose poached salmon and prawns served in a delicious, "more-ish" white wine sauce (Priced at £9.25 - June 2010). I am officially on a bit of a diet, so I thought this would be ideal.
My partner, Shelley went for some tapas style dishes .... Houmous & Pitta Bread (£3.75); potato wedges and a choice of dip (£3.95) and Goats' Cheese & Tomato Bites (£4.25).
My generous portion of salmon arrived on a large plate accompanied by a huge medley of vegetables including broccoli, courgettes, carrots and 2 sorts of potato.
Shelley's tapas dishes were also huge but every item was spot on and irresistable. Temptation, I am afraid, got the better of us and we cheerfully munched our way through the lot. I am sure we would have had a dessert too, if we had only room for one.
We could not fault the Musketeers for quantity, quality, atmosphere or price.
It is also worth mentioning that they offer free wi-fi and Moretti lager on draught - A most unusual choice and again very tasty.
We will certainly be dining at the Musketeers next time we are in the area, failing that we may even have to make a special trip - It is only about an hour away from "Barking Town" where we live.
(See my Barking Town VT Page for numerous tips on dining and sightseeing in our neck of the woods.)

The Flitch is an old English tradition which began in Great Dunmow's neighbouring village of Little Dunmow in around the 14th Century. The basic idea is that any man and woman who are married have to prove that they have not wished themselves unmarried (had an arguement) in one year and a day. If they can convince a judge a jury (usually a minor celebrity and local dignitaries) of this then they win a flitch of bacon, which is half a pig.
The Flitch occurs every four years, the next one being in 2008, and draw large crowds to the town. there is a parade where the winners are carried throught the town on a special chair, and also a fair for the youngsters.
there's always a good party atmostphere when the flitch is on, and it's also great from the historical point of view
