Taking the family out for a meal here was just a lovely experience, from parking and seeing the beautiful flowers around the building, to paying the bill. Excellent menu, unusually good variety of vegetarian and vegan options. The food was just brilliant, (except the nicely plentiful gravy with the perfect steak and kidney pudding was very salty.) Good wine list, the Primitivo (2018) good but a little sharp, might benefit from lying down for another year. More

Though the Wheatsheaf staff hadn't been expecting us (failure by OpenTable to notify the booking!) they rearranged furniture to fit us in and made us feel thoroughly welcome. There was a really good range of choice on the menu and the portions were such that I was quite satisfied with the 'smaller' roast dinner option! I would certainly recommend the place and look forward to our next visit. More

We went last to the Rayleigh Arms about 2 years ago. We heard it had changed owners and wanted to try it. It’s great now! Previous old and tired decor has gone and modern but classy decor in its place. The staff were very attentive without being pushy. The menu is smaller but it seems that’s because the food is all freshly made - not boil in a bag! My skate was well cooked and absolutely delicious. A light sauce was served with it and so nice I wish I had the recipe! The accompanying veg was perfect. My partners steak was superb. We will go back again very soon. More

Pan-Asian | Chelmsford, Chelmsford

I thought the food was excellent and the portions are generous. Try the smoked chicken or the yakitori skewers as a starter, or the katsu curry as a main really nice and really enjoyable. I cannot comment on the quality of the desserts as I couldn't handle that as well. The only quirk was that the place seemed to have an odd jazz cd on. Didn't seem to fit with the general aesthetic.
