Welcome to Restaurant 43 – Contemporary English Dining
Located in the heart of Great Bentley sits our unique diner ‘Restaurant 43’. Founded and built by restaurateur Mark Moorcroft along with his wife Dawn and their two daughters Ruby & Scarlett, they’ve come a long way in developing a very high class restaurant fit for fine dining. R43 was the absolute dream and now reality of this hard working local family, who promote the restaurant together as a relaxed eatery where you can totally unwind and escape the real world to be entertained in Great Bentley’s finest place to eat.
In 2012 soon after opening, Restaurant 43 was lucky to secure our Head Chef Simon Humm, a very experienced and qualified individual in the world of cooking. The past 5 years Simon has worked exceedingly hard to create a remarkable reputation, not only for us and the restaurant, but for himself too, which has led him to become highly respected within the chef community. Along him are our fantastic team of staff who’re very keen to keep customers happy and comfortable and of course to always provide a top quality service. With beautifully designed menus and happy, helpful staff their really is no other place to be!
In recent months the family have worked hard to create another warm atmosphered lounge area where diners can enjoy pre or post dinner or drinks with family, friends or loved ones. We also have luxury boutique bed and breakfast rooms to offer that suit our restaurant beautifully. So if you’re coming for a late night meal, an event or just need a little time out, our accommodation option could be the perfect thing for you!
Restaurant 43’s clientele proudly has been returning for 6 years now, along with many other recommended customers too. The family pride themselves with how wonderfully busy and captivating their restaurant has become with the help of their existing friends. We also provide your special evenings with a host of professional singers, flaming dishes, exquisite food and relaxed chatter. In 2015 we added a beautiful garden with outside seating with a great holiday vibe, BBQ, cocktails & open kitchen it is truly stunning.
