we just stopped in for a drink and i was pleasantly surprised, having not been there for about 10 years. the decor is light and bright, service friendly and good and will give the other new restaurants in chelmsford a run for their money

The Wine Cellar always offers a lovely environment and during a recent visit the food and service were both excellent. Helen and Claire in the restaurant were both extremely attentive and made the whole evening very enjoyable. Definitely will be returning for a further visit.

A carefully hidden gem. Great wines, spirits, beers, ciders and larger, as well as good quality food. The best part has to be the atmosphere, which is really helped by the great staff.

A wonderful find. Great venue,small, cosy and good atmosphere. Excellent food and a great afternoon. We were a group of twenty and we were professionally and efficiently served. We had pre ordered our starters and main and chose deserts on the day. Very obliging allowing us to pay individually.

It was my first time at the Wine Cellar for dinner, booked a table for 4 people for 8pm, note to anybody wishing to go here for dinner, book an hour earlier than you were going to, as it took nearly an hour for our food to arrive as it's such a small establishment. Was very busy, so a good... More

We've visited here a couple of times before and very much enjoyed the experience. Unfortunately this visit was not so good. Service was extremely slow (table booked for 8 pm, main course served at 9.50 pm), and we felt some dishes served to us bore no resemblence to the description in the menu. The bar area was buzzing and lively... More

We went here for the second time last night and it was a fabulous experience. The staff are so warm and lovely and the food was excellent. We had the duck wonton to start, which was a decent size and very flavourful. Then I had the king prawn and chorizo bread dish, which was exceptional and my fiancée had the... More
