Good food, nice venue.

The food here is very good and I was pleasantly surprised given it is more of a bar! The food is very well presented and tastes great. Th interior is lovely, very cosy and quaint. Have been here a couple of times now, would be more than happy to go back again.

I went to the wine cellar about a year ago with my other half but never got round to writing a review for some reason. Both of us are super picky when we eat out due to working in restaurants and he has a nut allergy so has to be careful when going out for dinner. We went on steak... More

My hubby booked us in last Friday. He knows that I like this restaurant and it never lets me down. From the cosy feeling of the bar area (which has just been tastefully decorated) to the service at the table. I love the little touch of your names on the wine bottle. Food was excellent as always. Thank you guys... More

Went for early dinner Saturday night. I had the red snapper fillet and my partner had the mixed grill. Both meals were perfect and washed down with a beautiful bottle of malbec. Small mistake we made was to order two lots of breads and oils for a starter because this turned out to be massive (excellent value) but it was... More

Visited this hidden gem on a Friday evening. The restaurant was reasonably busy and the small bar was popular. The menu offers good choice as did the specials board. I ordered crusted salmon and a friend ordered the Thai curry off the specials board. Neither of us were disappointed with well presented and delicious portions. The place has a cosy... More

I had not been here for years but had a good meal. the venue is cozy, probably only space for 20-25 covers away from the bar area. We had booked and think that would be essential at the weekend. Menu is small but not surprising when catering for small number. Quality of food was quite good, very tasty homely food,... More

Nice enough decor. Serving staff very friendly. Menu limited. Food was tasty BUT it took an age to appear. So slow is almost forgotten what I ordered.

I booked this last minute not knowing many places in chelmsford due to the reviews. Unfortunately it was fully booked but staff took my details and said would call me back if a table for 2 came free. True to their word they called me back in the morning and got a table for two. It was nice how the... More

This is a first for me but this place needs the recognition it deserves. Good value, well cooked food, nice relaxed atmosphere, great service(as always from future film star Chloe).
