The Food Company


86 London Road,
Marks Tey,


With a large selection of delicious food, together with a relaxing ambience and friendly staff, The Food Company Restaurant is sure to provide you an enjoyable visit.
Our Head Chef has the advantage of having fresh, quality produce on his doorstep, and all of our fantastic menus are created using produce from the Food Company store. From salmon fishcake to sirloin steak, there's always plenty to make your mouth water.
We cater for anything from fresh, delicious cooked breakfast, to coffee and pastries, to a full Á la Carte dinner. If you have any special dietary requirements please contact us before your visit and we will do our very best to cater for you.
By night the restaurant becomes The Grill offering its own menu of the finest steak and the freshest fish. The concept behind The Grill is simple - we want to offer you our selection of quality meat and fish, cooked exactly how you like it. Our menu focuses on the quality and freshness of the food. All of the dishes are prepared using ingredients from within the store.
Our steaks are carefully sourced from local British farmers, whose farms are inspected on a regular basis, to ensure the highest standards of animal welfare. They use specialist chilling and maturation processes designed to maximise tenderness, flavour and eating quality.
We use trusted fisheries that stock the highest quality fish from sustainable sources. Each catch is delivered within 24 hours, ensuring that you receive the freshest fish with maximum flavour. Once delivered to the store, the meat and fish are prepared by our experienced butchers and fishmongers before handing to our expert chefs to grill to your taste.
If you have an enquiry or would like to reserve a table, please call our Customer Services Manager on 01206 214000 or email info@thefoodcompany.co.uk.
