Further Information

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. Reserve your table now.

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.

Attentive, friendly, smart, efficient and professional service by staff who know their product and take pride in their restaurant. Good, fresh, hot, clean tasting food, well presented Generous, flavoursome dishes, interesting choices from a menu that offers a chance to try something new with confidence. Surprisingly diverse, great use of ingredients. Unexpectedly "Vibrant"atmosphere thanks to a hen party in situ but that didn't spoil the eating despite somewhat limiting the opportunity for quiet conversation. Would recommend and revisit.

Overall an enjoyable place to socialise and eat. We went for Sunday lunch and although the choice of starters was limited the food was good although the roast potatoes were slightly dry and firm which we remarked on and our waitress said we weren't the first to mention this fact and the chef himself was unimpressed with the quality of the product he had received, maybe next time we will see a difference as we would go back.

The meal was very good, the food was lovely. But unfortunately, my meal was dropped on the floor as it was being brought to our table. My table had been served theirs already, so it meant that I was awaiting my food whilst they were waiting to eat theirs. (Very polite) there was a delay before we were told and I just feel they could have told us immediately to save any food going cold and they could have offered some kind of gift be this a free drink or some small gesture.

Fab food, fab Prosecco! Our waiter Nial ensured our glasses were topped up from the moment we started sipping and he kept them full throughout our entire meal and after! The food was really good, the calamari was cooked perfectly and my beef stew and huge crispy dumpling was spot on....rich and full of flavour. We will be returning!
