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). All the little extra touches make this the stand out place in Chelmsford. I'm almost loathe to post this review as it's likely to be increasingly difficult to get a... More

I have lived just outside Chelmsford my whole life, and worked in the high street for well over a year. I had not heard of this place until I found it on TA. I took my girlfriend here Winter 2014, and what a surprisingly wonderful time we had. Simple, wholesome dishes cooked to absolute perfection! We both opted for Steak... More

We thoroughly enjoyed the steak and the manager was good to come and chat to us, explaining that the chefs have a very limited facility to prepare our meals and do a good job!

It is hidden even though in the middle of town so make sure you find it! Really warm welcome, lovely intimate atmosphere and the food is delicious. They also hold a steak night which I will be returning for. If you're in Chelmsford definitely add this to the list!

Had a superb Thai yellow curry on Friday 13 March 2015. Staff are always friendly and courteous. Food is always of a great quality. Get yourself down there for a great meal at a good price.

We come back here time and time again just for the amazing dessert shots. From the delicious donut to the equally tempting cheery bakewell they are all too good. It can get really busy if coming here for drinks so we tend to start the night here and normally leave around 9pm. Never eaten here but plan to one day!

We were greeted by very pleasant staff, ordered drinks and stood in the bar area until our table became available, the bar area was extremely hot as with the low ceilings and plenty of burning candles, however the ambiance was fine. At the table we read the menu, plenty of choice from meat, fish and veg, plus the additional items... More
