Our experienced and award-winning team of in-house chefs have created an extensive and mouth-watering range of menus using carefully sourced local

ingredients to suit everyone’s taste.

Ellis’s is our AA Rosette-awarded restaurant which offers relaxed private dining and extensive menu for lunch and dinner and our expert waiting team are on hand to help with your choice of wines from our drinks menu to compliment your meal. Bubbles are always chilled!

Now recognised as Essex’s premier boutique hotel and Spa since its £8 million refurbishment which includes restaurant, gym and spa Greenwoods is fast

becoming one of the most desired go-to dining destinations and our regular guest list includes a handful of local celebrities including boxing promotor Barry Hearn, Penny Lancaster and Pixie Lott.

Under the expert eye of leading Essex chef Daniel Holland Robinson our menus are regularly updated to offer some of best dining in the county with dishes that include delicious handpicked crab risotto, pan-fried chalk stream trout, rack of pork and a decadent selection of desserts such Hot Chocolate pistachio fondant and banana and butter pudding. His menus regularly feature in the pages of glossy titles Exquisite Essex, Essex Life and Eastlife magazines.

Ellis’s is named after Richard Adam Ellis, an illustrious owner of Greenwoods Manor House in the early 20th Century. A senior partner in the City of London firm of Richard Ellis & Sons, Auctioneers, Estate Agents and Surveyors, he was President of Stock Cricket Club for many years, a prominent member of the congregation of Stock Church and owned one of the first two motor cars in the village!

Open seven days a week and serving delicious, well presented food for casual and a la carte dining; there is always something to tempt you. Looking for something a little more special to do on Sunday? Come and enjoy our delicious Sunday Roast with a choice of meats served with all the trimmings, seasonal vegetables and lashings of gravy. Everyone’s favourite! With seating for 60 at any one time, the concept is for Ellis’s restaurant to be a venue in itself. It features a private dining area at the back which can accommodate up to 20 guests. Within the restaurant we host regular special occasions and dining experiences including Easter and Christmas, often with entertainment to make your visit more memorable.
