Service was great. Made sure our table was cleaned after each serving. Drinks were kept topped up and timing of food was spot on. Would recommend for a relaxed afternoon, without your brats.

Food and drink was excellent on the whole however service was really poor. Just 2 people serving and 1 was training so effectively just 1 person serving around 8 tables which meant a lot of waiting around to order. 1 steak was under cooked, the steak was sliced on the plate so I really don’t understand how the chef couldn’t see it was undercooked! Was sent back and came back as ordered, but no discount offered at the end for the disruption. Not the best experience and not sure we will return.

As regulars we always choose Bourgee on Saturday nights to visit , we were surprised to see how busy you were considering surrounding venues were so quiet .
Staff as usual were fantastic and really worked hard .
My only comment would be our steaks were not seasoned to how we normally expect it here at Bourgee and hoping this was a one off .
Thank you team and we will see you soon

Absolutely brilliant is the best way to describe, I chose the restaurant by searching for “Steak Restaurant near me”
The food was amazing, I had the duck salad to start, then I had the rare fillet steak, best steak I’ve had for a long time, my wife had olives to start and then the duck with garlic mash.
Our waitress was friendly and very helpful with checking allergy information in the kitchen for my wife.
We will return

The Waitress was great very attentive and friendly. Had the lobster and cheese bites as the starter could not find any lobster in it at all. Went on to have the lobster as the main it was very nice.

We love bourgee, had a lovely meal overall however we’re disappointed with our starter.

Having eaten here many times, we ordered Lobster and prawn bites for starter. There was no lobster in them at all and only prawn and so it was very disappointing and flavour different.

I came to Bourgee restaurant on a Friday evening with my partner it was to celebrate getting married that day.

From the beginning the experience was outstanding, A warm friendly welcoming from a lovely young lady ( can’t remember her name but she wore glasses) she was very helpful and Smiley when ordering and remained professional and friendly the whole duration of our visit ( I am not one to normally praise staff but she is a credit to Bourgee) She was always checking on us to make sure everything was ok nothing was to much.

It was such a lovely touch having a cake come out with a sparkler.

The food was Cooked to perfection the best steak I have had ( it topped miller and carter) ; My partner had the Bourgee lobster and he tp was very impressed! We loved our cocktails!

Overall the whole night was 11/10 will definitely be returning to this amazing venue.

Thank You Bourgee! :)

2nd time visiting Bourgee, love it here. Service is always great and they are very generous with the alcohol for bottomless brunch. I'm vegan and the staff were happy to adapt the menu for me. Only knocked off a star because the food came over an hour after we got there. Can't wait to go back! :)

Always a great meal. I’ve been coming for years . Lovely to see familiar faces and have some original staff from when they first opened.
Service was excellent my only issue would be how loud the music is.

Really enjoyed dinner at Bourgee, the food was excellent and of a high standard. The service was also very good, we were never left with empty glasses. The steak was cooked well and to my taste, as requested. The restaurant itself is very pretty and perfect for a romantic dinner but also good for dinner with friends. Although there was plenty of food they were nice sized portions so I was able to eat dessert too. I went for the Mars Bar cheesecake which was delicious, would highly recommend. The mood was energetic although the music was a little too loud for my taste.

Hopefully a one off this time! The poor waitress had about 15 tables to serve on her own so was running around, one person was bringing up food but that's all the help she got! I asked for my steak well done but it came out very pink (they swapped it for me) and my boyfriend wanted steak and lobster but ended up with 2 meals on the table! The atmosphere wasn't bad but felt like it was a bit chaotic and she could have really done with more help. The waitress was really apologetic and took a bit of money off the bill for us. I hope this review reaches management and more staff will be put in place to ease the pressure which would make it more relaxed.

I must visit in Chelmsford. The staff did great they were so busy but we managed to have a lovely time.
Bottomless cocktails were fantastic and the two bar staff made sure we always had cocktails in hand.

Thanks bourgee for a great weekend
