I booked a table at The Kitchen at The County Hotel in Chelmsford for a client meeting on a Friday lunch time. Just a short walk from Chelmsford train station and the town centre and with plenty of parking it is an easy venue to visit. I was looking forward to trying the food as the latest restaurant in the area to win an AA Rosette. We received a very warm welcome and were seated quickly and provided with the set lunch menu and wine list. The restaurant was a little quiet - we were one of only 3 tables occupied, but the bar area looked much busier. The set menu was ample for food choices - I imagine their A la Carte menu would have a wider variety, but it was not available.

The food tasted fresh and was presented well, and did include local produce. I thought the food was quiet traditional but certainly cooked by skilled Chefs. There is an extra charge for a portion of vegetables which when ordered was of a good size and again obviously freshly cooked. A jug of iced tap water was free and served without being pushed to buy the bottled.

I have eaten at the County several times and never been disappointed. The staff are very friendly and helpful and the food cannot be faulted! If you are just looking for a quiet meal somewhere or if it's a special occasion I would throughly recommend it!

I recently attended a Murder Mystery dinner at the hotel and the whole evening was a great success. The food and service were sublime, the actors and script for the evening was very enjoyable. All in all I would definately recommend this - what a fab evening.
I will be attending more functions at this venue.

We work in Chelmsford and was looking for a change to our normal work lunch in a pub. We decided to try the new look County Hotel, we didnt try the restaurant so therefore cannot comment but their bar food was very good indeed. A great offer of drinks, excellent food and service and a most comfortable area to sit. Definately be trying their restaurant at some time, their planned functions are also worthy of a try.
