We booked a two night break at Down Hall Hotel near Bishop’s Stortford in Essex to have a short break in the country to celebrate my birthday. We booked through Hotels.com with the average nightly room rate working out around £120 per night.
I came across the Flitch of Bacon, in Little Dunmow, Essex when looking for a gastropub in the country where I could celebrate my birthday. The Flitch of Bacon is owned by Daniel Clifford, who is most well known for owning Midsummer House, the 2 Michelin Star Restaurant in Cambridge. While the Flitch of Bacon doesn’t have any major awards as yet, its clear from the outset that this is certainly where it is heading (although, you’ll see from this review there is still some work to do!).
