The New London Restaurant and Lounge
Simply the best restaurant in Chelmsford. Original dishes at sensible prices.
Amazing time and lovely food!
Been here few times before..
Maitre ‘d is so friendly and attentive..
Outstanding customer service.
Will keep coming back again and again..
The New London was amazing as always yesterday. The food was great, the Prosecco kept coming. It was noisy but there were two large groups in so it’s to be expected. I’ll be back!
Once again amazing food, great service and a lovely setting.
So much to love about this place - nice setting, location out the way from a crowded Chelmsford city centre of mostly chain restaurants and good food offerings.
Unfortunately let down by unattentive service. Empty glasses had to get waiters attention to order more drinks and ask for the bill. Understand a slow relaxed dining style but this was sub-par.
Food sounded good on the menu but execution not quite there. Roasted duck breast was dry.....maybe a drink would have helped but my glass was empty!
An excellent restaurant for that special occasion. Meets the old cliche....."You get what you pay for. ..."
We both really enjoyed our meals but we had lumps in our mashed potatoes with our meal and at this level and price is disappointing but overall enjoyable meal.
Menu was fabulous in my opinion, very modern and beautifully presented, very nouveau cuisine, so a few sides are needed. Problem with some establishments with modern interiors is the noise level, we could hear ourselves speak. I would definitely return as I thought the food was superior to a lot of restaurants I’ve eaten in the Chelmsford area and afar.
Some dishes across our table were very good but other flavours combinations just didn’t work if I’m honest. It really feels like this restaurant is trying to be something it’s not, high end charging London prices. There was a considerable wait for both starters and our main courses and the waitress forgot our drinks on two occasions. I’d read good reviews but think it’s overrated.
Food and service were excellent - staff very friendly and helful
Another fine dining experience at the New London, always a treat, spoilt for choice on the menu, and sublime service and surroundings. Definitely recommend, never fails to disappoint. Support this independent restaurant, we are so lucky to have it in our city!
Went to celebrate our wedding anniversary with friends. First Visit. Very impressed with decor and layout. Staff very professional and attentive. Food excellent apart from 2 small things. One sauce on a fish dish had wasabi in it but not listed as so on the menu which wasn't to my friends liking and the strawberry millifeuille would have benefitted from a few more strawberries. These two small things aside a lovely evening, will definitely be back and will be recommending the restaurant.
Top restaurant amazing food
Lovely food in a calm atmosphere. We can never manage 3 courses but did manage 2 this time. The roast chicken was lovely and moist and the poached peach dessert was totally yummy.
Thank Open table for recommending x
Had a lovely anniversary meal at The New London food was so tasty, the fillet steak was probably the best I ever had so tender and amazing flavour.
This place is simply class, great atmosphere great service and wonderful food. A must try in our opinion.
Lovely celebration Sunday lunch, thank you so much. We thorough enjoyed ourselves
Fantastic as always. Tried the set menu for the first time which exceeded our expectations
I have been twice previously to this restaurant but have not been for about 6 months. Food was even better than I remembered, amazing and with great service....I would highly recommend this restaurant to everyone
Superb meal and wonderful wine in what is the best restaurant I've eaten in outside of London. Highly recommended.
There isn't another restaurant in Chelmsford that gets near to The New London's menu for choice of starters, main and desserts. The menu changes regularly so you've got to keep going back to try the new options.
The service is always brilliant and very welcoming
I can't recommend The New London highly enough.
Lovely evening. Great menu and the food was delicious. Service was wonderful and we will return.
Our best dining experience foe a long time. Everything from beginning to end was brilliant.
Greeting, service, food, staff, ambiance and value for money. The tomato and pepper soup, fillet
steak and the roast duck were perfect and a large wine list.
Excellent service excellent food
This is the best restaurant in Chelmsford!!!! The food is original, seasonal and delicious!!!! The service is incredible!!! So professional and lovely!!!! Great venue!!!! If you want somewhere that isn’t a depressing change restaurant, somewhere that is original with a touch of class then look no further than the New London.
Amazing food, top notch service. Great wine selection
I love this restaurant and always had a great time when I go.
Staff are friendly and welcoming. Food is amazing.
Whats not to like :-)
Fabulous food & service as always. Fixed price menu would probably be better value for money. Will try next time
This was my second visit and I wasn't disappointed. A great variety of Gins which is very important to me. There wasn't many people so it was lovely and quiet. Great service and the food was excellent. My favourite restaurant in Chelmsford.
As always an outstanding meal with fantastic friendly service
The food and service was excellent. Would recommend and will definitely return. The dishes were all presented beautifully and tasted delicious.
Very pleasant experience.....a little overpriced but
the food was very good ....service a little slow but maybe a good thing as I hate being asked if everything is ok every 5 mins .....staff were friendly ....
This was our 6th visit to the New London and yet again it did not disappoint!
Excellent food and excellent service, very highly recommended.
A great first experience! The restaurant is a nice sleek modern design and the ambience is the perfect setting for a nice meal. The food was very good quality and equally visually appealing and delicious. The service was fantastic and could not be faulted. A very enjoyable experience and great value for money.
Great restaurant. Food is amazing, staff friendly yet very professional and extremely attentive. Look forward to going again.
Our group was 4 friends who meet regularly. None of us had ever been to the restaurant before and all 4 of us thought the food and service was excellent. The waiter had the right balance of knowing when to leave us and when to come over. However we were the only people in the place so obviously the service ought to be good. We all said we would return again.
Great service, great food, I haven't been back here for several years, since it first opened, so a pleasant change.
It was rather quiet but it was a Thursday night, and lacked atmosphere for that reason.
But if it had been more vibrant would have been excellent.
pleasantly surprised at the quality and taste of the food which was excellent. service was good attentive but not over the top. the menu was good with plenty of choice for most people. would recommend this restaurant.
Very pleased with our meal, been meaning to visit for a while.
