Our Food

REIDS is all about great tasting, fresh and locally sourced food.

We believe in keeping things local. We like to use food that’s in season when it’s at its very best. Most of our menu is sourced from Essex and East Anglia, whereas the rest will be delivered daily from London’s historic markets including Billingsgate for the seafood, Smithfield’s for meat and poultry and any fruit and vegetables that we can’t find in Essex, will come direct from Covent Garden and Spitalfields.

Our aim is to keep the flavour of our food as British as possible, without restricting creativity. Modern twists on classic dishes and gastro pub favourites with restaurant flair, can often be found on our menus. Our market menu changes regularly, so we can use the freshest and tastiest of local ingredients to create the very best dishes.

We love to be inspired too, so if you are a local producer or supplier and you would like to work with us, we’d love to hear from you. Our details can be found on our Contact Us page, or send an email to: info@reidsbillericay.com

Locally Sourced Food

We source all the food we can from local farms and suppliers, so we know what we are buying, where it comes from and who grew it, and we only take the best.

28-Day-Aged Beef

For the best beef, we don’t need to travel far – Essex and East Anglia produce some of the best beef in the world. We know the suppliers, so we know that the animals are treated well and fed well. This is reflected in the quality of the meat.

The best beef is beef that has been well reared and well treated, but everyone would agree, that if you want to really enjoy good meat, it must be well hung. Hanging the meat for 28 days develops flavour and the perfect texture and adds to your delight.

Fresh Vegetables

Do you really want a lettuce that has got more air-miles than you? We don’t think so. We source as much of our produce from neighbouring farms as possible, so that we can follow it from field to plate. This means that you will find seasonal changes in our vegetables and a taste that you just wouldn’t get from an air-freighted, plastic-wrapped monstrosity.

Fresh Seafood

Daily deliveries ensure that our seafood is straight from the boat and onto your plate with our team of Chefs adding a few essential touches to an already impressive product. Simplicity is key when working with fresh fish and our Head Chef – Tadd, is a firm believer in letting the product speak for itself.

Local Suppliers

Our suppliers are our food heroes. They maintain quality and allow us to choose the best. If you grow food locally and want to be one of them, get in touch. Our details can be found on the Contact Us page, or send an email to: info@reidsbillericay.com
