Chelmsford Café Rouge serves delicious bistro-style French cuisine in a warm and inviting atmosphere. There is also an outside seating area and Chelmsford Rail Station is a 9-minute walk away.

As part of the nationwide group of Café Rouge restaurants, this branch offers their range of classic French dishes such as confit duck, beef bourguignon, steak frites and mussels. Smaller dishes are also on offer for a lighter bite. Particularly good value for money are the set menus for lunch and dinner (available most days). To accompany the food there is also a good range of French wines, many from less well known producers.

In true French style, breakfast is also an important meal at Café Rouge. With croissants, pain au chocolat, omelettes and croques, as well as hot chocolate, tea and all types of coffees, it makes a great start to the day.

Close to the town centre, Café Rouge is within a 10-minute walk of Chelmsford Central Park.

    A mixed experience

  • ((((* 29 January 2017 by David from Chelmsford

    Service was fine and recommendations about the menu were fantastic (we shared the onion soup / charcuterie board for starters), a good wine selection as well (if a little pricey). The only thing that let the experience down was the chocolate fondant for dessert, which was not liquid in the middle so ate more like a cake. Nevertheless we will probably return.

    Good food and quick service except don't complete special requests when booking, even with a few days in advance, unfortunate but made up by being able to choose and move where I was sat.
