“great service but food a let down”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 13 August 2014

We came for lunch having been recommended. Tasteful decor and very clean. Staff very attentive and pleasant. Unfortunately my friend's smoked salmon too salty but this was quickly taken off the menu as they agreed and we were not charged. Linguini cooked to perfection but crab very nondescript (it was just shavings) and tasteless. No flavour to the pasta so didn't eat it. Not charged for this either. As my friends both enjoyed their main courses, I will give it a another go as I've heard such good reports. Perhaps it was just our unlucky day.

“Great Dining Experience”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 9 August 2014

Enjoyed 'date night' here with my husband. Firstly we loved what they have done with the place, can hardly recognise the previous old pub- the interior and exterior have both been tastefully decorated with a modern design. The menu has just enough on it to offer good variety, and everything sounded delicious! The food was well presented, and tasted even better. Service made the experience, we never felt rushed and were able to enjoy the evening with a bar available should you wish to continue.
I don't often choose a dessert, but one screamed at me and I am so glad I did..... The White Chocolate Fondant with Banana Ice-cream is amazing!!
Definitely recommend The New London!

“Not-to-be-missed restaurant in Chelmsford if your focus is excellent food”

Visited this restaurant for the first time last night and was very pleased with the experience. The food was top quality and cooked to perfection. The presentation was brilliant and the service was also very good. I hope to be back soon!
