Rather lovely light lunch sitting outside watching the traffic roll by down Shenfield High Street ...

Lot 75 has expanded since I last visited so I took the precaution of booking a table beforehand.

Polite and attentive staff ensured an enjoyable two hours finished off with a little ice cream 🍨

Happy to recommend to like minded diners seeking a casual interlude.

The wine 🍷 that the table next to me were enjoying looked very tempting.

A couple of pots of tea 🍵 for me this time.

The service was very slow, three people left mid dessert because their 2 hour parking was running out. Very very noisy shrieking women.

What can I say? I love Lot. There’s something special about it. The food is always lovely, you don’t get laughed at when it turns out you’ve booked for brunch but don’t like bacon, eggs or mushrooms (don’t judge) but you can something random instead. The most important thing about it is the staff. They make you feel like you’re so important even if you just want to order a hot chocolate and a tea. They go above and beyond and it is such an amazing quality to have in any public facing industry. They greet you like an old friend and if you’re lucky, you can even get a hug and that warmth from fantastic staff just goes the extra mile. Long may Lot keep wining hearts. I’ve had mine stolen. Also, those smartie cookies by the counter are amazing. Please don’t buy them though as I won’t be able to :-)

Would of got 5 stars for food and service but was refused a side of baked beans because it was 12:09 and beans are considered a breakfast food, my 1 year old wasn't impressed.

Sunday Roast: Meat was lovely really tender and well cooked, potatoes good too. Vegetables were really underdone, really too crunchy for us, Cauliflower cheese needed to be cheesier and saucier.
Service is always outstanding. Overall OK. Would definitely ask for my veg to be cooked through in future!

Excellent Roast for Sunday lunch. Food and portions were good for the price. Some party members thought cauliflower w/cheese quite poor but this was a side order. It's a noisy place but service is efficient. Seating is utilitarian rather than sumptuous. Yes, I would go again for Sunday Lunch but it is not a place in which you can linger for too long.

Great food and efficient friendly staff. Quick service and the staff were attentive to detail and quick with drinks. My partner had steak and described it as having amazing flavour.
Rather noisy in the restaurant but didn’t distract from the experience
