Great Dunmow Restaurants

  • by Dunmowdad Written Aug 12, 2012

    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.

Great Dunmow Local Customs

    2 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    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
