This is a little gem, something different and a great place for breakfast. It’s a burger restaurant for the rest of the day and it’s has some excellent choices on the menu for them. One of our favourite resturants.

The Red Dog brings a refreshingly different food and drinks operation to Essex. Whether you’re after a full English breakfast, a “ridgy didge” burger, chef-designed meals cooked to perfection or homemade desserts washed down with the best coffee around, The Red Dog is the place to be. And don’t forget the Grog Shop for an amazing selection of wines!
