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.

Wonderful evening, food was outstanding (we had mushrooms, pate, and calamari to start, then pie, fish and sausage for main. The boys finished with delicious chocolate brownies) and service warm and friendly. I highly recommend the white rijoca, it was outstanding. Overall, impeccable!

The food was fantastic, we had really service and the atmosphere in the beautiful restaurant was great too . We will definitely be returning soon. Highly recommended!
We had been meaning to visit The Chophouse for ages, and after their Sunday roast was recommended to us by a friend, we decided it’s about time we went. We’re so glad we did. The service was exceptional, food delicious and plentiful and the decor very tastefully done. We look forward to returning to sample their weekday/Saturday menu soon, but if their Sunday roast is anything to go by, then we won’t be disappointed. Highly recommended you try The Chophouse.
We took two of our friends to lunch for there first time at the chophouse and they couldn't get there heads around it as we explained how it's served, well needless to say when we got there they ordered there started which they both loved followed by the roast! They loved it and was truly stuffed , they still managed to fit there desert in just about but they are still talking about it now and can't wait to go again! I don't think they will eat a roast any other way now.
Such a lovely meal at The Chophouse Braintree!! Speedy service & great food!! Lovely setting!! Would recommend to anyone!! Thank you The Chophouse Braintree! :)
Myself and a few friends recently visited The Chophouse for Sunday lunch. We had the most amazing and scrumptious Sunday lunch we've had in years. All washed down by a fine Malbec - at just the right temperature. The service was fantastic too; not rushed and very well looked after. A lovely afternoon was had by all. Thank you to Rob and his team. We can't wait to go back for more culinary delights.
Lovely little restaurant. I believe we were served by the owner who obviously takes a massive pride in his business. We watched him patiently showing the young waitress how to set tables to an immaculate standard. The Menu was small and each dish executed perfectly. The mash was smoked bone marrow / butter infused, something I have never had before and was gorgeous. All of the courses were good. The drinks menu was right up our street with a large gin selection. We will return.
Absolutely b****y wonderful! Fantastic food, incredible understanding of flavours, simple yet extremely effective menu and the attention to detail was second to none. Rob serving certainly knew his food and helped us in our choice as well as delivering the most awesome espresso Martini cocktail. We will be back!! And thank you for making husbands 50th birthday evening a delightful time. Certainly earned their AA Rosette!
