    We went to use the three course meal for £20 per person but felt the options on this menu were poor

  • (**** 14 August 2017 by Jon Howsam from Newark

    Truly awful !
    Took an age to be seated, table dirty and sticky, not that busy, decor dreadful, electrical cables hanging from wall. Starter fairly quick but took over an hour for the mains which were swamped with black pepper wanted to bring to attention of staff but no one took notice.
    Mr Oliver sort out your restaurant!
    I could go on but in one word RUBBISH

    We were a tad disappointed. With 5 choices for starters the one we chose was off the menu. The waitress was unaware. Main was good. Puddings , again from 4 the one we chose was off the menu. Again the waitress was unaware, the waitress was very nice and apologetic.

    Although there were some issues with our order, the waiting staff handled it brilliantly and gave us many complimentary items to make up for it. They were attentive, efficient and helpful. The atmosphere was lovely, as was the food - would definitely dine here again!

    Started off well, drinks at the bar, shown to our table for booking time. Decided to go for the 3 courses for £20, waitress struggled to find the offer on the ordering iPad but did eventually. Ordered a bottle of wine & a lemonade, wine arrived but had to keep asking for lemonade for our driver. Our starters arrived an hour after ordering even though the restaurant wasn't that busy. Another long wait for our mains where 3 of them were cold, we were meeting friends elsewhere so a couple of us decided to eat the cold option as we were running out of time, one sent there's back & was replaced with a hot plate within 5 mins, why couldn't that have happened first time. We are now eating 2 hours after our booking time. Didn't have time for dessert & we did complain. To be fair the manager did waive quite a big chunk off our bill but id rather pay more & have a pleasant dining experience. Chelmsford has so many dining options I definately won't be going back.

    Lovely food, only no pizza dough so 1/3rd of menu was off, which I didn't really think was particularly good for an Italian restaurant.
    Service very good.
    Very relaxed atmosphere.
    No non alcoholic wine or beer but non alcoholic cocktails.
    What I thought was very good was you could have a large or small salad.

  • (((** 2 May 2017 by Sheila Berry from Cambridge

    The staff were very friendly and helpful. I did not love the shabby chic decor - a bit too shabby anda waste of a beautiful space. The food was only OK - we both had the roast dinner - my beef was very dry and overcooked, my Mother's lamb was fatty. The vegetables were nice and the homemade emanado was delicious.
    I eat a lot at Jamie's in Cambridge and I didn't feel the experience at Chelmsford matched up to that.

    Excellent all round! Great friendly service, good ambience, interesting décor, superb food, reasonably good value for money. The meal was to celebrate my birthday and all of my guests really enjoyed the whole evening. We'll be back soon....Thanks Jamie's!
