A few weekends ago, Essex Foodies visited The Mount, a cosy bar on Chingfound Mount. The bar has recently been taken over by new management, & to celebrate, held a fantastic launch party which we were invited along to. The evening saw free flowing drinks along with samples of their food menu so you could get to know a little bit more of what The Mount is about.
As foodies, we of course were delighted to try some dishes from the menu! However, as we weren’t aware there was going to be food on offer, & had eaten prior to arriving, we didn’t get to sample everything, although by the standards of the food that we did try, we are certain everything else on the menu would be more than up to scratch. The dishes that did try were;
– Chicken & chorizo pasta
– Beef burger
– Fish & chips
All of the above were absolutely outstanding, in particular I liked the pasta – perfectly cooked with just right amount of sauce to pasta ratio! Other dishes on offer included various pizzas (which looked amazing) along with humous & crudites. Had we not already eaten, we would’ve given more a go!
All in all, we had a very pleasant evening at The Mount, & we look forward to seeing where it goes next. We have noticed on Instagram, there are more & more event nights taking place, so this is definitely one to watch – even if you’re not looking for something to eat!
Thank you to management for inviting us down & thank you to all the team for looking after us.
