My husband and I went to the Bluebell for Sunday lunch. We had the most delicious meal, attentive service and fabulous varied menu. I had the smoked haddock starter and my husband had the pate. Both of us opted for the roast beef and it certainly didn't disappoint truly delicious. Dessert cheese and biscuits for him and the bluebell forest... More

I have had many an afternoon tea but never one that I have left feeling let down by - especially when the restaurant is so good! Lovely setting and staff that welcomed us warmly into the restaurant. - Homemade jam is a lovely touch but should not be the only available option to have on your scones. - Sandwiches were... More

Have wanted to visit for a long time, so when my sister got a groupon voucher for afternoon tea and asked me to go I was delighted to accept. The restaurant looks small from outside but is like a tardis, modern decor, spacious seating. Sandwiches were great very fresh and lovely fillings, the scones were some of the best we... More

We were given a voucher for a 6 course tasting menu and I made the reservation before I was pregnant. I emailed in advance to say I was pregnant and there were certain foods I couldn't eat. They catered for my dietary restrictions despite this meaning they had to serve my husband and I 3 different course options. They could... More

We booked for dinner for 4 on a Friday evening. The location is very easy to find, but finding a parking space can be a little tricky. The decor / layout of the restaurant is wonderful, a mix of essex bling and old-fashioned 'homely', which works very well. It fits for either a romantic dinner with your special other half,... More

This is one of my absolute favourite restaurants! The ambience in this place is sophisticated without being too stuck up. The staff are really lovely and treat every customer as though they are a VIP! The food here really speaks for itself, interesting and tasty takes on traditional European food. The scallops to start and any dessert are a must!... More

This is the second time we have been to this restaurant but this time we came for Sunday Lunch and they didn't disappoint. Lovely welcome when you arrive and we had pre-meal drinks and then went through. I'm not that keen on roasts so was glad of the fish dish. Grilled Cod Fillet with mussels in a light curry sauce...

Simply Outstanding restaurant with great customer service. This is my second time of eating here and both times have been great. Had the scallops and belly pork to start followed by the roast beef. Both were excellent. Definitely coming back again.

I went here for lunch and wasn't disappointed it's a lovely little restaurant and the food is very good, the service is good too, there isn't much of a vibe here it's not the place you go to if you want to have a good Friday night out, but if you want a nice meal this is a nice place... More
