“Literally Disgusted”
Reviewed 6 July 2014

My Wife & I used to enjoy dining at Barnes Farm quite regular, several times a month, but had not been for some time. On this occasion we were appalled at service & food. We have both decided to give Barnes Farm a miss in future. It seems that a considerable amount of money has been spent on refurbishment, pity the Disabled toilets weren't included in this. The disabled toilets always had a little water on the floor but on this occasion you needed a boat to use them. Service was atrocious, got the order wrong, dirty cutlery on table, slow service, drinks didn't come for ages, ice cream desert was melted when served. Waited ages for bill and to pay. Small portions for quite an expensive price. Final Thought: Avoid!

“FYI”
Reviewed 4 July 2014 via mobile

I booked on line and kept the text message but when we arrived there was no record of our booking. Lucky there was plenty of space. We sat outside for pre dinner drinks and that was nice enough in the sun but not cheep. Dinner was ok but £21 for fillet steak was expensive I thought

“Almost right but not”
Reviewed 2 July 2014 via mobile

I've been to this restaurant quite a few times. The food is usually good and the staff are friendly and attentive.
But why do the management insist on spoiling a good place with background music that's too loud, so it's not in the background any longer? The music is always louder than people's conversations and so is intrusive.
Such a shame....

“Gorgeous steak”
Reviewed 1 July 2014

Definitely a must for anyone who loves a steak. The meals I feel are good value, and the atmosphere in the Chelmsford Miller and Carter is lovely - great for families, couples and friends.

“Good but not great”
Reviewed 26 June 2014 via mobile

We have visited miller and carter on many occasions - especially for special occasions and have enjoyed it every time, however I do feel as though it's overpriced for what you actually get. The atmosphere of the establishment isn't the most comfortable and being your average person, it's easy to feel out of place here. The food on offer here is decent and I cannot fault the meal, although it is hard to justify the prices they charge here when you can get something very similar, far cheaper elsewhere. Overall I would say it's a lovely place to dine for special occasions, although I would chose an establishment with a more relaxed and welcoming atmosphere for every day dining.
