Starting an Essex stag night on an empty stomach is the worst idea ever! Begin at a pub with stag party food platters and pitchers of beer. It's far easier and way less time consuming than doing a meal at a restaurant. There's something for everyone, and it's exactly what you need before you set off on a bar crawl.
Everyone loves pub party food. Carbs, meat and cheese will set you up nicely. Add beer to the mix and you have the dinner of champions.
The food you'll be eating goes very well with beer. Stag platters feature all the popular favourites: big-ass potato wedges, sliders, crispy onion rings, chicken wings or goujons, sauces - you know the drill. Fine dining it ain't, but this is no time for tiny cuts of meat with dots of sauce and a single fondant potato. Drinking food is the order of business.
An Essex stag night could see you hit everything from traditional pubs and chains to swankier bars and lounges. There are hip clubs and superclubs to consider as well if you're in Chelmsford. If you want to go the distance and look just about sober enough to get past the door guys you will definitely need to eat before you booze. Accept that it's going to get messy, but arm yourself before you go into battle!
