Essex dating: What to do?

Once you’ve met someone promising on EliteSingles, take a chance and ask them out. In Essex, there are many options of where you could go, but it is important to consider a place that you think your date will like and also a place you will feel comfortable in. Take a look through our Essex dating ideas below, which we’ve chosen to suit a variety of tastes.


fish and vegetables
Dining out

If you and your date are partial to the finer things in life, visit the award-winning restaurant Haywards in Epping. Selling high quality European cuisine made from local and seasonal produce, with exceptional attention to detail, this is the place for an impressive fine-dining date night.

two red coffee cups
Time for drinks

For something more low-key than an evening meal, you could try your hand at daytime dating. Little Waltham’s corner café, Cairnsworths Delicatessen & Tea Room, is the perfect spot to meet your date for a morning coffee or an afternoon slice of cake and cup of tea. If you’d fancy something a bit stronger, suggest meeting in Bar Zero in Billericay, and get acquainted over cocktails.

couple walking through countryside
Romantic walk

On the other hand, if the weather is good, suggest to your date to meet for a romantic woodland walk or seaside stroll. With the longest coastline of any English county and woods filled with bluebells in spring, there are plenty of outdoor scenic spaces to spend time bonding with your date.
