The Contented Sole has a long history of serving gourmets, celebrities and lovers of fine food.

Set in a charming 18th century building in the picturesque riverside village of Burnham-on-Crouch, the restaurant draws its fresh, seasonal ingredients from its location - the farms of eastern Essex, the famous oyster beds of the Blackwater and the North Sea fishing grounds.

The Contented Sole is renowned for its French and English cuisine. Among its most popular dishes are Lemon and Dover Sole, Crêpe Fruits de Mer, plus a range of locally-sourced meat, fowl and vegetable courses. The service is first-class, the atmosphere sophisticated but relaxed, the wine well-chosen and the exceptional food is sensibly priced.
