The beloved British chophouse is more than just a restaurant or a pub, and The Chophouse Braintree keeps this in mind with every single thing it does. It’s a modern take on British dining that retains all the well-loved traditions whilst embracing certain flavours and cooking techniques from overseas. Tastefully decorated, The Chophouse Braintree occupies a gorgeous cottage-style building on the town centre’s New Street that you simply can’t walk past without being lured in. There’s a variety of menus fit for any time of day with classic, indulgent flavours in each, making this chophouse a definite jewel in Braintree’s crown.
The British chophouse dates right the way back to the 17th century and the birth of modern commercial trading, when they served as gathering spots for businessmen going about their trade. Of course, after all the hard work, gentlemen would enjoy some of the finest food and drink that was available. The chophouse, then, has always been synonymous with quality and The Chophouse Braintree is certainly no different. Find it in the heart of Braintree sitting grandly on New Street, then delight at homely decor, earthy colours, wooden flooring and a general ambience that will make you feel comfortable. The Chophouse is an extremely pleasant place to sit and there are varied seating areas for all sorts of occasions.
The Chophouse Braintree is open for lunch, an evening meal or simply a round of casual cocktails. If you’re passing through the town centre early then you can enjoy a selection of appetisers, perhaps the chophouse sausage rolls, smoked salmon or baked Suffolk chorizo. If you’re a little more peckish, there’s pesto dressed linguini, steak and chips with bone marrow butter or a classic ploughman’s sharer. The main event, however, is the evening menu. Diners from all over Essex flock to Braintree to savour a duo of lamb with aubergine puree and dauphinoise potato, or perhaps pangrattato risotto with butternut squash, caramelised walnuts, sage and amaretti. As it’s clear to see, The Chophouse Braintree serves the best of British with subtle influences from abroad. The menus are simple yet sophisticated and we urge you to give them a try.

Lovely little resturant with amazing food. My first experience at The Chophouse but will definitely will not be the last. Just to go back to try more of their menu. I would highly recommend eating here.
Everything about the meal and service was spot on. We thoroughly enjoyed the whole experience dining at the Chophouse in Braintree. Would definitely recommend it.
