Like the other reviewers, we used to go to this place when it was the Hothouse, and it has been totally transformed. We dropped in for coffee in the morning, and to book a table, and one of the owners and his daughter were lovely, and made us feel very welcome. They made room for us that evening, and we got there early for a cocktail. By then the place was buzzing, with live music (think Ed Sheeran). The food was delicious, with some unusual combinations of fish with meat which work well. I had halibut, my favourite fish, and it was perfect.Again we were made to feel very welcome, service was excellent, and we had good advice on the wine choice (it was good to see a decent wine list in Chelmsford!). If I have one criticism - the music from the bar is a tad loud for customers in the restaurant - I would turn it down a bit for diners. But we will definitely return.
