Popped in after googling 'wine bars in Chelmsford'. Found a lovely cellar with a small bar, plus a great small bistro. Food was lovely. Staff were so friendly. And the eighties music made me feel young again!

Very busy Friday night so booking is advised. Staff were very friendly and attentive, drinks and food were superb. Thirty minute wait but expected on a Friday so order a bottle! Toilets are minuscule but it's called the wine cellar... Will be back for certain.

Took my fiancee there for valentines day, food was excellent, proper old fashioned service nothing was too much trouble, and the wine was the best we have ever had in any restaurant.

Not sure what the menu is, worth checking the website. I know the chef spent time in Thailand so the curries are great. It's about a 10min walk from Brook street, just off duke street, opposite the fleece pub
