Welcome to... The Punch Bowl Restaurantin High Easter

Situated in the beautiful village of High Easter, The Punch Bowl is the perfect place to buy your wines.


Friday from 7pm, Saturday from 7pm, Sunday from 12 noon

The Punch Bowl.

Closed from 20th March as per Government Restrictions.

After 34 lovely years, Penny and I have decided that we are not getting any younger and that The Punch Bowl Restaurant will not re-open in its present form.

Instead we will re-direct our efforts to our Wines Sales (Luckins Wine Store, 9 Market Place, Great Dunmow, Essex), and our many trips.

If you need Wines - we are open at Luckins Wine Store - Great Dunmow, or collect from our cellars here at The Punch Bowl.
We also have extensive wines in our cellars here at The Punch Bowl.

Penny and I have had such a lovely time, and have met so many great people who have become friends too. How lucky are we!
We have also had a great team here at The Punch Bowl, but hopefully with Royal Ascot already planned for 2021 you will get to see us then.

The Punch Bowl is an English restaurant located in a listed Tudor Building in the picturesque village of High Easter. Open Friday and Saturday evening's, as well as for Sunday lunch, we pride ourselves as being an English Restaurant in the countryside!

We have a great wine list, with a plentiful cellar bursting with delicious wines to accompany your meal.

Come through the Kitchen, meet the most important person (my Wife who cooks) and go through to our wine room.

Choose your wines and we will decant or chill your wines ready for your meal.

We have some really good wines for off-sales either in our wine room or in our stores... If you have a function coming up I am sure we can provide great wines at amazing prices, (or at least try too!). Don't forget Wine is a really good gift.

After many years of successful trips, we have some fabulous trips planned for 2020.....
