You Need To Try Marygreen Manor Fine Dining!

Rib Eye Steak and tomatoes

Simply sublime

Did you know one of the main reasons people miss out on a truly joyful moment in life – price. That’s right! Label a restaurant as fine dining and people immediately see pound signs. While we can’t deny, a true fine dining experience is always a little more expensive, it’s no where near the kind of price many seem to think it is. It’s also worth noting that a true fine dining experience will provide you with three elements you just won’t find anywhere else and they are…

High quality food and drink – here at Marygreen Manor, we cook from only the very best ingredients. We always, when able to, source local ingredients too. This means that our menu changes seasonally and while it may not feature as many dishes as say, a chain restaurant in the high street, you will instead notice some truly unique items that you just wouldn’t find anywhere else. On top of this, you’ll also find yourself privy to an award-winning wine list with each wine picked specifically to compliment each individual dish.

Unbeatable service – when it comes to service within a fine dining restaurant, there’s quite simply nothing else like it. Not only will you find staff much more attentive to your every need, but you’ll also find a few added extras such as crumbing tables between courses, replacing napkins if you leaves the table, escorting you to the table and holding chairs for women as well as serving food directly at the table. Such added details are quite simply exquisite and really separate a fine dining restaurant from any other.

An elegant atmosphere – from grand décor to modern, contemporary hand made furniture; a fine dining restaurant is guaranteed to blow you away and Marygreen Manor is no exception to the rule. Considering the history of our manor house, you’ll find some amazing period features offering a real hint of our Tudor history too.

As you can see, fine dining is much more than simply “eating out”. It’s an experience that you’ll want to enjoy again and again.


Marygreen Manor fine dining offers more than great taste!


Local produce always tastes the finest…

If you were to ask someone about the benefits of fine dining, then the vast majority would probably tell you about the health benefits. It’s widely known that fine dining is actually a rather healthy way to eat. Not only do you eat slower between portions but the portions themselves are smaller too which means your body gets a chance to feel full before you’ve managed to eat far too much. On top of that, a fine dining meal will also tend to contain a wider variety of food groups. Paired with wine, you can relax, unwind with friends and enjoy the slow release of dopamine as you enjoy a relatively healthy night out. What could be better? Well perhaps the fact that fine dining offers a lot more than a guilt free food session.

Customer service – due to the high level of food during a fine dining experience, the customer service is often above and beyond what you would usually find in a normal restaurant. This is something we feel strongly about here at the Marygreen Manor. We want you to not only enjoy the food you’re served but the way it’s served too. From the moment you cross the threshold, we want you to feel so much more than the average Joe. We want you to feel phenomenal from start to finish.

Top shelf wines, beers and spirits – as anyone would agree, a fine dining experience simply wouldn’t be “fine” with average alcohol. Just as the food is on another level, so should the alcohol be. Thankfully here at the Marygreen Manor, not only do we offer quality beers, spirits and soft drinks, but we also happen to have an award winning wine list to accompany our fabulous food.

You’ll stay abreast of trends – this isn’t something people necessarily think of but surprisingly, something that pleases many without them realising. Enjoying fine dining means that not only do you get to enjoy fabulous food, prepared and served at the very highest of levels but you also benefit from staying abreast of the very latest trends within the food industry. Our head chef not only freshens up our menu seasonally but also looks for the most current food trends to incorporate within the menus too. Not only that but they’ll also recognise exactly when a so-called food trend is suddenly turning into a food fad too, case in point mini-burgers circa 2009.

Aside from benefits such as this, when you enjoy fine dining you’ll also get to enjoy a truly wonderful experience too. Here at the Marygreen Manor Hotel and Restaurant, we know just the sheer setting within our manor house is stunning enough. Add to this a wonderful ambience, beautiful food and the highest level of service and there’s simply nothing better to enjoy. If you’d like to experience a night like this in our exquisite Tudor restaurant, then we advise you call to make a reservation in plenty of time. Reservations not only guarantee you a table at one of Essex’s most popular restaurant and hotels but it also allows us to space apart “fine diners” ensuring our kitchen staff can focus intently on just yourselves.

What’s On In Wintery Essex This January?


Sticking to your new years resolution?

With the New Year in full swing and everyone back to work, the anti-climax feeling can really start to set in but that doesn’t have to be the case, especially here in Essex. With it’s great mix of countryside and city life, there’s always something to do and something to look forward to. Whether you’re a guest of leisure or a guest on business, here’s our guide to what’s on in Essex for the wintery month of January.


For those who just love to enjoy the countryside in the depths of winter then the Winter Wonderland exhibition at The View in Chingford is the perfect event for you. This art and photography show captures the wonder that is Epping Forest during the cold crisp months. Running from the beginning of January all the way through to the 29th from 10am to 5pm and the best bit of all, it’s completely free.


If the arts aren’t really your thing then why not join in the fun with one of the High Woods Country Park Sunday Strolls in Colchester. Dust off those wintery cobwebs you’ve collected sat in front of the fire and exercise your limbs. It’s just a short drive from us here at The Marygreen Manor to High Woods where you’ll be taken on a three-mile walk through the country park by the ranger himself. With one on the 18th January from 11am to 12noon it gives you plenty of time to break in your walking boots. They also organise great Friday Health Walks too. Led by trained health leaders, they’re a fantastic way to improve your health and fitness in a more sociable setting. All organised walks are completely free with no need to book. It’s the perfect start to the day that could be swiftly followed by one of our delicious afternoon teas perhaps?


For some the slow and steady speed of a walk just doesn’t quite cut it so for those who are really jumping head first into their fitness resolutions the Run for the Run in Hatfield Forest could be something to go for. Running Saturday 10th January meaning hardly any time to think about it and talk yourself out of it. Pay a minimal £5 entry fee and run the 5km course through the forest and park, all in association with the National Forest. If that’s just too soon then don’t worry you haven’t missed out because Parkrun organise free 5k runs every Saturday morning in Weald Park right here in Brentwood. All you have to do is sign up via their website and show them your barcode at the beginning of every race to get your official finishing time.


If you’re looking for something a little less “get up and go” and a little more leisurely then why not take a look at something that Essex is becoming famous for…it’s Farmers’ Markets. Barleylands in Billericay are playing host to two different Farmers’ Markets this January with one on the 10th (the perfect excuse as to why you couldn’t possibly run tomorrow) and one on the 31st. Running from 08:30am-12:30pm in its new indoor home so no matter what the weather you can grab some great quality local produce.


Local produce always tastes the finest…
