This was a family lunch celebration for 24 people including children. We were most pleased with all elements of this lunch from the planning of the menu, wines and and canapés, to the friendly and efficient orchestration of the event and the excellent food. Thank you to manager Terry and his excellent team, and to the chef. CMS.

Visited on Saturday evening on Groupon Deal, welcome, service and food was first class. All three courses were well presented and tasted delicious, love the lobby area where you can enjoy a pre-meal drink whilst browsing from the Menu. The background music was very good as well. Highly recommended, will be returning......soon

From booking to leaving Bartella's was really a lovely experience. The restaurant is spacious but maintains its warmth. We had drinks in the lounging area first, which was comfortable. The whole time staff being available but not in your face like so many places can be. The starters down to pudding were absolutely freshly prepared and tasty. Wine selection was... More

On a warm Tuesday evening when the trains from London to Chelmsford were suffering from severe delays, I was able to get as far as Shenfield. On the way back home after being collected by the other half, we stopped here for dinner as an on-the-spot decision. At first we were the only ones in there, but we're later joined... More
