About Le Bouchon Brasserie & Hotel

Le Bouchon Brasserie and Hotel is a grade II listed, 300 year old Georgian building which has undergone an extensive refurbishment programme restoring the building to its former glory. The renovation period was used to combine some of the original period features of the building with furnishings and classically styled decoration that complements the original style of this house.

Le Bouchon Brasserie offers a blend of both French and British cuisine, set in a relaxed and intimate environment. Enjoy a meal from our A la carte menu or choose from our wide selection of set menus available at different times during the week.

Sitting adjacent to Le Bouchon is the beautiful 14 mile Chelmer and Blackwater navigation canal which opened in 1797 and flows from Springfield Basin in Chelmsford to the sea lock at Heybridge Basin near Maldon. Guests can enjoy a relaxing riverboat cruise after lunch or before dinner in the summer months.

This was our eighth visit to Le Bouchon and, barring a slight issue on one occasion, we have never had a bad experience.

Dining at Le Bouchon is in simple terms an extremely pleasant experience two of my favourite dishes scallops and lamb rump were cooked to faultless perfection love the introduction of unfamiliar rums to the bar selection am now hooked on the Scottish "Dark Matter" its worth a try !

We had not been to Le Bouchon for several years and now we wish we had not left it so long. It has risen to the top of our restaurants to go to list - and it's not far from home. We went for a Saturday evening meal and now want to try all the other options, especially Afternoon Tea. The staff, especially the maitre d', Tim, were all attentive without being 'in your face', the food was delicious and the atmosphere was relaxed but smart.

We had Sunday lunch there and it couldn't be faulted. In particular we liked the Le Bouchon salad. This restaurant is a class act and good value. The magician came round to everyone and he was excellent. And Jenson Button was lunching with some friends at the next table...

Was greeted and asked whether we prefer to have a drink first or to be seated. We choose to be seated. Ella our waitress was very informative about the drinks and food, offering to change anything we didn't want. Once our food was serves she was unobtrusive, but managed to see if our drinks needed topping up or our plates cleared. The food was lovely. When I booked the table I was asked if it was for an occasion and confirmed ot was for a birthday. When the dessert was served it had a candle and happy birthday written in the plate. A small criticism is that although the plates were piping hot. The food wasn't so much, but delious never the less.

Excellent professional service, that takes an interest in its customers. Well presented food of high quality. Pleasant and varied environment with nice area for pre dinner drinks / cocktails.
It is the place to go if you like good service that also makes you feel welcome.

We've been to Le Bouchon four or five times now and it never disappoints!
It's essentially a top London quality restaurant in Maldon.

Service is excellent, the food is perfect - you can see how much thought and effort had been put in, and it tastes great.

Fantastic cocktails too!

will look forward to my next visit.

We have been to Le Boucheon many times before but it was the first visit for many of the school mums and they were all impressed. The food was delicious and very well presented. The highlight for us was the fantastic cocktails and relaxed atmosphere! Thank you for another great visit:) We will be back again soon.

We thoroughly enjoyed a wonderful meal at this fabulous restaurant on Saturday evening. We began by taking a small boat trip along the river before returning to the bar for a Cocktail. Over the two hours that followed we experienced an extremely professional and friendly service and first class food.
