About us


Dandelion and Burdock is a boutique style restaurant/cafe, run by husband and wife team, John and Mel.  It has a seating capacity of 36 + covers. The cafe style restaurant is situated in the heart of the quaint village of Stock in Essex- nestled between Billericay and Chelmsford and only a ‘stone’s throw’ from London.  Stock was voted by The Times in March 2014 as one of the top 100 best places to live in the UK.  It is quiet and pretty, with many desirable walks and paths, making Stock appealing for walkers, ramblers and bikers alike.

Dandelion and Burdock is in the ‘hub’ of the village and the shop has a fresh, New England appeal, with a lovely ‘home away from home’ atmosphere.

Sandwiches, paninis, soups, salads, home made cakes and more are available on the menu. We also have a daily specials menu, which incorporates all fresh local ingredients, cooked in our kitchen by our wonderful chef.
