Very pleased with the lunch at the Rainbow and Dove. Althought the pub was busy when we arrived we were soon shown to our table and given the menu. One of our group had eaten there before and so the Steak and Kidney pie was recommended at this was certainly a good choice. Real home cooked quality food. We also ordered a Tuna Jacket Potato and salad and this was generous in size and tasty and well presented. There were very tempting deserts on offer but we were too full to try them. Perhaps we will on the next visit. Our overall experience was very good and for the Rainbow and Dove another four happy customers.

Second visit to the pub now, and felt obliged to write my first review.
Living in Chelmsford it is unfortunately not local for us, which is a real shame. There are not enough Good pubs left anymore.
There is a warm welcome to you as you enter the small bar area. The staff are very helpful & friendly.
The food we have had was of good quality & undoubtedly homemade.
I enjoyed a couple of real ales which were in good condition. I am a member of CAMRA so pretty qualified in the field!
It is also very reasonably priced, for the quality you get. Extremely good value.
We look forward to our next visit.

We have visited this pub three times now in the last six months and have had a great meal every time. Service has always been friendly and efficient, and the food has been excellent.
Bear in mind this is a pub, so food isn't served mid afternoon time. In addition, it's a small place, so booking or going at a quiet time would be advised.
