Pinchos Wine bar and Tapas Restaurant in Chelmsford is friendly, vibrant yet sophisticated offering great Spanish cuisine. All the dishes are made on the premises and sourced from local suppliers. Pinchos imports many of the ingredients direct from Spain to ensure the authenticity of their Tapas. Pinchos has been established for over 10 years and is reported to be the first Tapas restaurant in Essex.

There is no formal set course meal in a Tapas bar, customers order a selection of dishes and everyone pitches in, then they can try some more. With great food, great service and an extensive  wine list it's no suprise Pinchos is well liked and well reviewed.

As a fan of spanish food, Pinchos offers some of the best tapas I have experienced in this country. The food is always fresh and locally sourced where possible. The staff are very friendly and are always looking after the customers. Wine and beer selection is great and the specials on the menu always offer something a little different from the standard tapas selections. The rabbit is particularly good! Recommended for informal drinking and dining of all sorts, ambience is great. Fantastic music some evenings and great outside dining and drinking in the summer where you can watch the world go by.

 

Good food, good experience !!!

Can't resist writing this review to share our experience dining in this excellent restaurant. The food is excellent!

Pinchos is a restaurant where you can chat with friends and enjoy the food and their lovely music. this is definately THE place to go for extraordinary tapas and have a very good time.

The quality and diversity of dishes was impressive and it is also a great value for money. We went after reading the reviews and were not disappointed. The service matches fantastic food. We love this place, don't miss it!

 

great food , surroundings not so great!

i booked this for my boyfriends birthday, not realising it shut at 10 - we didn't arrive until a little after 9! i have to say because of this we felt very rushed - tapas is a meal that should be taken at leisure. i'm a little annoyed they didn't tell me that shut at 10 if they had i would have gone elsewhere - never known a restaurant to shut so early its pretty stupid!

we were seated upstairs where i have to say i was very disappointed with the decor, it was brightly lite with no candles or table cloths on the table - the website makes the restaurant look lovely - in real life its nothing like that!

the food i have to say was very good part from the patas bravas they looked burnt and didn't taste at all great! All in all i would go back but possibly for lunch and wouldn't book it for somewhere for a special occasion as it just isn't which is a real shame!

After years of talking about it, some old school friends and I finally arranged a lunch. We are all professional women, living in various parts of the country and Chelmsford was deemed a central point to meet. But where to eat? As a self confessed foodie, I took no chances and made sure out choice of venue came highly recommended and boy did my research pay off. I work in Spain and Portugal for much of the year but haven't found anywhere to match the qualitiy of tapas (don't get me started on the deep fried baby squid or I shall start drooling all over again). Every dish had a distictive flavour - tapas can be so samey in my experience, we put calory counting to one side and shared the amazing banana and apple pancakes. There was a fabulous choice of wine, the service was second to none and it was amazing value for money. We shall not leave it another ten years but will go back again and again!!

I am an ex British Airways longhaul hosty and have travelled all over the world, eating in the best restaurants and sampling all delights. During my flying years - when I was back in the country - the one place I could be found if I wanted to go out would be Pinchos - the ambience, the service, the food and wonderful warmth and welcome was always paramount. I now no longer fly - but I frequent Pinchos often as the atmosphere and friendliness of everyone is so inviting - why go else where I ask myself!!!! When the sun shines (although there are warming heaters outside when not so warm)- the outside seating area is a suntrap and one can watch the world go by and enjoy an almost mediterranean atmosphere.....lunch times often span into the evening as it becomes so comfortable and friendly. I have only praise and compliments to give this lovely Tapas Bar - I would recommend it highly.
