Sun Inn Dedham

High Street, Dedham, Essex, CO7 6DF
Find this popular local, also offering good food and a comfortable place to stay, opposite the 15th century village church. Expect an excellent selection of real ales, plus a timbered interior, open fires in chilly weather and an interesting collection of historical local photographs on the walls.

On the food front, the kitchen offers a menu that combines Italian dishes with top-quality local ingredients.

For a snack, two could just share a plate of Antipasti (particularly if only one liked oysters), but an early Summer menu also brought 'Watercress & Potato Soup'; 'Bruschetta of Braised Cuttlefish in Tomato Sauce with Olives'; 'Asparagus & Broad Bean Risotto with Mint & Parmesan' and 'Linguine with Brown Shrimps, Wild Trout, Fennel Seeds & Baby Tomatoes' among the starters.

'Baked Whole Plaice with Mersea Samphire & New Potatoes'; 'Pan-Fried Calf's Liver with a Warm Salad of Aubergines, San Marzano Tomatoes, Pinenuts & Sultanas'; 'Grilled Spring Lamb Chops with Baby Beetroots, Fennel & Salsa Verde' and 'Slow-Roast Gloucester Old Spot Pork Belly with Spinach, Lentils & Oregano' listed among the mains.

Friday evening brings the addition of various cuts of local, traditionally-hung, beef steaks.

While if you still have room their desserts, which follow the seasons like the rest of the menu, such as 'Chocolate & Mascarpone Tart'; 'Elderflower Semifreddo with Mint Syrup' and 'Strawberries in Chianti Classico with Cream' might tempt you – while those with a more savoury tooth will find it hard to resist their selection of artisan British cheeses.

A small shop 'Victoria's Plum' selling fruit, vegetables and many other groceries; plus traiteur dishes and sauces – either used or produced in the kitchen – is attached to the pub (see our Shop section).
