Finally a great place to eat in Chelmsford City centre! Food and service were fantastic, a special mention to the tart-tatin best dessert eaten in a long time! Can't wait to come back again.

A good looking, classy set up and a genuinely warm hello with un-rushed service from start to finish. And you know in some places when you have to catch the waitress' eye to get your bill when you've finished eating? - I didn't get that here. The staff are very attentive and seem intent on seeing to your need before you actually realise you need something. I gave this review that particular title as that's genuinely how I felt. This place is here to give the Chelmsford restaurant scene a much needed shake - up. Congrats guys..

The people from Lime Berry Catering have made a really nice job of turning the old Red Lion pub into a very stylish restaurant. Given Chelmsford is mostly populated with chain type restaurants (not that there's anything wrong with those) it makes a change to find a full service closer to a fine dining experience. The menu was refreshing small but everything on it looked delicious. The staff were well presented, polite and very good. The wine list was comprehensive and not too expensive.

Clearly they've become very popular very quickly as we could only get a table at 6:30 on a Friday night and by the time we left it was packed with a really good atmosphere. Would thoroughly recommend and will be going back sometime soon (but not at 6:30!)

Chelmsford is littered with themed chain restaurants all trying to out bid each other with vouchers and discount codes. While this is great for the pocket of the diner, often something gets lost along the way. The quality of the food. So, if you are getting rather fed up with the same old same old I'd advise you to give this restaurant a go. We ate there on a chilly Sunday afternoon and we're pleasantly surprised. Here is a chef that knows his craft and cares about his food. The menu on the day was a set priced lunch menu. Nicely thought out and well priced. Good rich flavours, decent portion sizes and well presented. These guys are trying hard and deserve to do well.
