Stopped in on off chance they could fit us in for Sunday lunch, which they did. Lovely atmosphere, lovely decor. Menu offered a great selection. Food was excellent and plentiful. Waitresses were friendly yet not overbearing. After a mixup over desert we were given them free of charge which is a lovely touch that you don't get often anymore. We... More

Upon arrival you are aware that this place is going to be impressive. The interior is stylish and intimate without being stuffy. The only real issue I had was what to choose from the menu as EVERYTHING sounded delicious. I wasn't disappointed! The food was perfectly presented and tasted even better. Service was spot on too with attentive waitress that... More

Another smashing evening shared with friends at the Dog and Gun. A lovely cold drink under the shade of umbrellas on a hot summers evening and such a relaxing place to be able to sit with minimal interruption. This establishment is well maintained with a pleasant surrounding to eat either on the patio or inside. A party of 6 mid... More

Was hoping that the menu might have embodied a more "British Game Season - as it was The Glorious 12th and given the name of this Gastropub! First time we've been here in many years and the restaurant itself has been very well done out, although despite having many tables free the lack of a reservation made us feel a... More

Have been here a few times and not disappointed this time round. Met another couple here for dinner on a Saturday and between us none of us had booked but amazingly they were able to accommodate us and we only had to wait 15 minutes. Good food from a good choice of menu plus a specials board. The decor of... More

Had heard some very good things about this restaurant and was not at all dissapointed. The staff were very friendly and helpful but not over the top, you really barely noticed them yet they did a wonderful job. The food was top quality, the kids meals were very well cooked and served. The adults meals were truly excellent, I had... More

This is a good find on the outskirts of Chelmsford. It is a gastropub with seating inside and out and a small kiddie play area. We were a party of 6 with one small child and one vegetarian diner amongst us. We all managed to find something to eat and the food was both well presented and tasty. We all... More

Came for lunch on Sunday and the food was amazing and service was great - a very busy place for a Sunday . If the kids are happy then mum and dad are happy lol. Bit of a loud group of women on the back of the patio giving the staff a hard time - not sure why people are... More

My sister-in-law recommended this restaurant to me and my husband. We had dinner plans with friends and recommended that we give the Dog & Gun a whirl. After living in Chelmsford for five year it was so nice to find a place which is truly an upscale gastropub/restaurant. Although there weren't any tables available outside or in the main restaurant... More
