We had Sunday lunch recently with friends from Chelmsford. They have never been to Shenfield before and there is no better way introducing the area as by going to Lot 75. It never disappoints - the food and the service are both consistently good; drinks menu is just right and there is something for everybody; the atmosphere is very warm. Would recommend to all - locals and visitors to Shenfield .

Not as COVID Safe as it should be tables too close together and people standing in the bar.

A nice restaurant with comfortable chairs, the food is well cooked and fresh . The portion size is just right, the staff were friendly and welcoming although in this occasion I felt the service was a bit slow I don’t mind waiting a while to place my food order if I have my first drink order but we had neither for a bit too long . Previous dining there service has been excellent so maybe just an exception this time

We have been eating / drinking at LOT since it opened as a Bar.
We regularly have Breakfast in the Bar area and the food is consistently tasty and well presented.
The Evening meals are superb, a good variety and it is always difficult to choose.
The team at LOT are unfailingly welcoming, professional, attentive without being effusive, and remember the regulars and what they order.

Staff were friendly, helpful and polite. Food great..
not much atmosphere but that was purely due to Covid rules and regulations.

The Lot is local friendly and the staff are really helpful. The food and drink is a little more costly than some places for lunch but they welcome you and we always enjoy our visits.

Went here on a Tuesday night with a friend. I had the Salmon and she had the chicken pasta. Both dishes were delicious. The staff were attentive and friendly and we had a thoroughly chilled evening. Well done

The food was good apart from Cajun chicken being totally overcooked. But I’m no time at all, it was replaced, huge apologies from the manager and waiter.
Very noisy even though it was only 5.00p.m

Be mindful when you pay. Waiter took my husband's card to do contactless (which is not allowed) and ended up paying more for our breakfast.

Good menu with also a good choice of specials. I had the special soft shell tempura crab as a starter which was lovely . Friendly service. A bit noisy but it was the Saturday before Christmas so you expect it to be lively and it certainly didn’t ruin our experience. We like it here and will be back.
