Visited the Wine Cellar for the first time last Saturday. We were not planning to go there, I wasn't even aware it existed. Our friends suggested calling to see if they had a table and they managed to squeeze us in within the hour. What a lovely little place, if you didn't know where it was, you'd walk past it.... More

Having not been to the wine cellar for a little while myself and some friends thought we would pop in for a brief drink not really expecting much other than your usual main stream beers,ales and lagers.. What we did find is a fantastic little bar with a great range of beers some you'll struggle to find outside of London... More

Visited one Friday evening with my sister and niece. We had not booked to eat (one of our party has Coeliac disease so we were not sure she could eat there) so we ate elsewhere in advance and enjoyed some wine here afterwards. Excellent choices available from the wine list. Seating space limited if you are there only for a... More

My friend and I had lunch at The Wine Cellar today after my Uncle & Aunt's recommendation. We were greeted by a very friendly lady on arrival, and shown to a table where we were talked through parts of the menu (having been asked if we had been before), and the lady was extremely knowledgeable about all the food and...

I visit here for lunch regularly and the food and service are always great. It's a small restaurant so its always best to book. It's good that there is always a varied selection on the specials menu, although there is also a good choice on the standard menu. Lunch here is always good value for money.

I've been going to The Cellar for years but in recent years felt it had lost it's way. I returned yesterday for the first time in a few years and what a difference. The Staff are excellent. The girl serving us should be used by every other Restaurant in Chelmsford as a benchmark for how to interact with customers. I... More

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.

Its lovely to read reviews from people in the industry as I find we are more picky than anyone. Thank you for such a lovely review and I am so glad you enjoyed Steak Night and I hope the Indian Night was just as tasty. Thank you once again 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
