Alec’s Restaurant Bar & Grill is the latest project by Alec Smith, formerly of Smiths Brasserie and the Chariot Restaurant Group. Alec has lovingly restored the former Green Man Public House at Navestock Side, a prominent landmark within the local community, with flair and passion. Spiral staircases, spacious dining rooms and stunning views from every aspect. Whether it be enjoying the surrounding countryside or watching the cricketers on the green opposite, at only 3 miles from Brentwood and 10 miles from Chigwell, its location is superb.The restaurant is named in memory of Alec’s late father who was a great influence on his career, and his grandfather, a fish porter at Billingsgate Market. Both can be found on the walls throughout the restaurant, keeping a watchful eye!
Alec’s Restaurant Bar and Grill sets out to provide simple, quality food cooked the way you wish. Head chef Stephen Li, with whom Alec has collaborated before on previous ventures, brings his knowledge and expertise from the most superb kitchen area. Classic fried cod in beer batter and chips sits happily with steamed sea bass with an oriental twist.
