Welcome To The Flitch of Bacon, named after The Flitch Trials held in the village. This ceremony was originally set up by local Augustinian monks and exists to award a Flitch of Bacon to married couples from anywhere in the world, if they can satisfy the Judge and Jury of 6 maidens and 6 bachelors that in 'twelvemonth and a day', they have 'not wisht themselves unmarried again.’

Located in the heart of Little Dunmow, in Essex, The Flitch of Bacon is a traditional family pub and B&B serving great food in our spacious dining area or one of our cosy snugs or even the courtyard garden with ample seating for "al fresco" dining or just a drink.

Conveniently situated in the vale of the River Chelmer nearby to Stansted Airport, Leez priory, the Flitch Way and the village church which is described as one of the finest monastic buildings in the country which dates back to the 12th century.
