In simple terms, desperate to get my City clients down to eat at The Contented Sole... Brings a lovely touch of class to little old Burnham.... A top afternoon with renowned London restaurant class food, ambiance and an even better service...

Had lunch on a TravelZoo voucher - it was my 66th birthday and there was just the two of us, but it was just lovely - everything - the food, the lovely staff and a really nice atmosphere. It made my day! We will definitely return (not on a discount voucher) and will recommend to friends.

The Contented Sole is a wonderful restaurant offering first class food and service at really good prices. It has a great reputation, based on its current offering and its history - Prime Minister Edward Heath used to eat there, among many other luminaries. It went through a bit of low patch some years back the the new ownership has got it back on track. Burnham is about half an hour from Chelmsford and is a pretty waterfront town with lots of good pubs and great walks. I ate there a few months back - the pigeon starter was out of this world, and the main course, the Dover Sole, wad perfect. I skipped the dessert - for which I blame my brother (long story).

 

Foodylicious!!

We had our Christmas meal here and it was simply fantastic and memorable. There was a good ambience with a full restaurant without it being over-crowded. The staff were pleasant and helpful. The food was to die for. The traditional turkey was on the menu (my husband had it & it looked delicious) but I wanted to try something different. I started with the Octopus, Chickpea & Rosemary Soup - the ingredients worked so well together & it was perfect for a cold wintery day. My husband's gran had the Deviled Quail - it was so tasty, I wished I had that too! For my main, I opted for the Roast Pheasant Breast which was stuffed with foie gras on klapshan & braised savoy cabbage - absolutely divine. For my dessert, I decided to carry on breaking tradition and had the Creme Brulee which was just perfect whilst my husband had the Homemade Christmas Pudding which he loved. To finish off, we had Mince Pies with coffee & tea. It was a fantastic Christmas meal. I am excited by the Contented Sole's menu and cannot wait to go back again to try everything else on the menu.

 

Outstanding evening out!
