Review on The Blue Bridge Bar & Restaurant

A once-aging local boozer in the Norman village of Writtle (a couple of miles from Chelmsford) has been stylishly transformed into the Blue Bridge - a flashy in-tune venue that combines a restaurant and a piano bar offering regular live music sessions.

Inside, the restaurant has been totally transformed, with wood floors, potted greenery and shimmering green wallpaper. It makes a chic setting for food with a modern European accent. To begin, you might fancy pan-fried scallops with pea purée and mint vinaigrette or seared pigeon breast with William pear and Dolcelatte. Fish is also a strong contender when it comes to main courses (try grilled fillet of Atlantic halibut with asparagus velouté and cockles), along with prime meat - perhaps 28-day aged Castle of Mey sirloin with oyster mushrooms, Dijon mustard sauce and crispy onion rings.

The wine list is a personal selection, hand-picked by owner Steve Andrews - an oenophile with a special love and knowledge of Champagne. A popular venue for weddings, business and special events.
