The Riverside Inn Chelmsford is the latest aquisition by The Blue Group. We have now relaunched come in and see us and the changes we have made. Our new all day menu is available every day from 12 noon with Sunday roast served until 7pm. Over the last few months we have refurbished this 17th century mill to make this venue a must see in Chelmsford. A wonderful position on the riverside, the large courtyard garden is surrounded by water. The Riverside has five fantastic hotel rooms, restaurant, function room and spacious bar area.

My wife and I went for a meal on Monday night and it was absolutely delicious! And at a good price. The staff were warm and welcoming much like we have come to expect from the other Blue group locations. We even received a voucher for 20% off, Highly recommend!

the food was excellent, the staff were very attentive, especially the lady manager, for a large group you can sometimes be overlooked but not at the Riverside., it was a great atmosphere and my whole family enjoyed it and would not hesitate to go back.

A young man who introduced himself as Adam took our order pretty soon after. The food came quickly and was presented well. Tasted delicious and was piping hot.... More

There was a wide selection to choose from on the menu. As it was a Sunday we all opted for roast dinners. The wait wasn't long at all considering... More

11 family members went for lunch at the Riverside Inn for Mothers Day. We had booked for 3 pm but the staff put the time back to 3.20 pm. When we arrived the place was quite empty at first, the staff were tidying up and we had to wait 45 minutes before we were asked for our meal choice, all... More

We went to this restaurant for a birthday meal just 4 ladies. The décor was very nice, unfortunately we were seated upstairs which had very little atmosphere as we were the only people there and next to a window with a very cold draft, which we covered with a table cloth to block it. The waitress was very nice and... More
