Flitch of Bacon
Little Dunmow, Essex
History and tradition abound at The Flitch of Bacon, which takes its name from the trials that award a flitch of bacon to married couples that can swear to not having regretted their marriage for a year and a day. This tradition is traceable back to 1104, revived in Victorian times, and still held every four years to this day.
The long history of the Flitch of Bacon has a new chapter now, having undergone extensive sympathetic restoration to become a restaurant with rooms.
Seasonal expression is found in the food here, with local area producers providing quality ingredients. The menus are a delight for anyone who enjoys classic elements elevated to a memorable level by a chef with an empathy for the elegance of simplicity.
