We preferred to spend our money here while on the way to Stansted Airport. The staff, and the food, were amazing. Our meal arrived leaving us plenty of time to get to Stanstead. Highly recommended. More

British | Chelmsford, Chelmsford

Very pleasant experience, we were welcomed in and sat outside in the garden to enjoy a drink as we were early. It was such a beautiful day we ordered from the garden and the waiter came and got us when our food was ready. The restaurant is very quaint, we loved that all the guests weren’t plumped together in one room and spread out across the restaurant. We were made to feel welcome. The service was excellent, and the food was fabulous so much so we went for all three courses. Would highly recommend. More

One very slight quibble with the food. The Gazpacho was a little fibrous. But overall an excellent lunch and our guests enjoyed the restaurant. More
