47 The Street

Rayne, Braintree
09/06/2019: Despite living locally this was our first visit. We had heard good things but hubby was sceptical. We were very pleasantly surprised, staff were friendly and efficient. The desserts were excellent, hubby was disappointed that there was a lot of gravy with his calves livers rather than less but richer and we both agreed the vegetables were very over cooked and unexciting. Will definitely return.
06/06/2019: We visited this restaurant with a few friends recently. The restaurant used to be a pub that my wife and I used to visit.



Bocking Blackwater, Braintree
13/06/2019: Oysters is consistently good, the service is quick and efficient, tasty and fresh fish and chips, reasonably priced. We are yet to have a bad experience here, long may it continue 👍
31/05/2019: Had a meal on May 23rd, as I have been suffering loss of appetite during treatment it was a delight to enjoy a meal out and be able to eat it all, such good fish and chips and the young man serving was so polite and attentive, will be back. Thank you.


West Street Vineyard

Coggeshall and North Feering, Braintree
18/06/2019: We went with our children - the food was amazing (roast beef to die for), the wine sublime and the service fabulous. We had such a lovely time. It wasn’t our first visit and we love this restaurant. We had to purchase a bottle to take home too!
13/06/2019: What can I say that hasn’t already been said about this breathtaking venue?!


Peartree Pantry

Hatfield Peverel, Braintree
10/06/2019: On our route to the south, we took a wrong turning and by shere fluke came across "Pear Tree Pantry" in what seemed to be a back lane. Needing a break we stopped for tea and were well rewarded for it. There is plenty of parking, the premises were spotless and the cakes etc. on display were impossible to refuse. Our intention was just to stop for a drink but ended up with cakes as well. The young lady serving was so helpful, polite, and a pleasure to chat with, which with her recommendations, she made it difficult to not sample the cakes. Other customers were having meals which I must say looked quite tempting, had we not been on route to meet others for a meal I think we would have quite happily eaten more there. Unfortunately it is not an area I visit but would recommend this restaurant to anyone that happens in the area. Only criticism is that it is easy to drive by as there are no advance warning signs of it's presence. Superb
30/05/2019: Lunched last week at this previously familiar place which is under new ownership since January 2019. It was a lovely sunny day and I opted to take a table near the door, explaining that it would be nice to sit outside but the picnic benches didn't suit as I have recently had a hip replacement which restricts my sitting. They picked the table up and sited it out of doors in the shade. How exceptional is that? The service continued in the same vein and the food, lasagne for my partner and a salmon bake for me, was freshly cooked and delicious. Still sensible prices with a slightly more adventurous menu though good unfussy food which seems quite hard to get nowadays. Highly recommended.


Blue Strawberry Bistrot

Hatfield Peverel, Braintree
14/06/2019: This looks very welcoming as soon as you arrive, and proved to be the case when presented with the menus and general ambience of the place. Great choices on the menu and lovely people serving. Food was great and a good choice of wine. Didn’t include my personal favourite but the second choice was available. Prices are for special occasions, not day to day, and the parking facilities are really not sufficient for the amount of diners, however, going on food and service, really good.
12/06/2019: Wonderful, helpful and delightful staff that go above and beyond for their customers. Amazing, local , tasty food! Have visited now 6 times and me and my husband keep coming back, each time the experience gets better and better! highly recommend!!

17/06/2019: Nice food lovely stff enjoy the meal Good customer service i will be coming back very soon 👍👍👍👍👍👍👍👍👍👍👍👍👍👍👍👍👍👍👍👍👍👍👍👍👍👍👍👍👍👍👍👍👍👍👍👍👍👍👍👍
14/06/2019: Would give 5 stars but unless in summer months I can't use the place due to no wheelchair access. This is not the owners fault as it's a old building. Don't be put off going otherwise as it's a great little place, cosy and friendly.


The Cross Keys

Black Notley and Terling, Braintree
17/06/2019: Popped here for a bit of lunch with a friend. Have driven past hundreds of times before. The food here is really nice. Good quality, attentive and friendly staff and very nice clean decor. Will certainly come back!
10/06/2019: We have tried a great deal of Restaurants in the area over the Years and for some strange reason hadn’t given The Cross Keys a look.

Witham Chipping Hill and Central, Braintree
07/06/2019: Joana was our server. She appeared to be the Manager as well. She explained there was no draught beer and very little cold wine as she had been let down by her suppliers. She appeared genuinely sorry and also really up against it. Despite this she was soldiering on against the odds. Our meals were fine, we didn't have as much beer as we would have liked (perhaps not a bad thing) but we will go back because Joana and her staff are triers.
06/06/2019: I take advantage of its offer on line 40 % off on main course


The Red Lion Inn

Three Fields, Braintree, <20£
14/06/2019: Just love this pub. The beer is amazing. Beautifully kept and tasty. Should be in the beer guide so if there are any camera members reading this then I would recommend that you go. The staff are great. Very welcoming and helpful. We have eaten here a few times and have enjoyed every mouthful. Always a good choice on the menu. Price wise good value and good size portions. Nothing negative to say apart from limited parking but you can always park in the street across the street
10/06/2019: A fantastic pub with great, friendly, service and, more to the point, tasty food. All, I will add, at a reasonable price. Eight of us arrived on a last minute booking because a BBQ was out of the question due to the change in weather. On arrival we were greeted by the landlady with a fab smile. A table was ready for us in the restaurant but we waited and had a drink first. Never was there a rush that ‘your table is ready!!!!!!’ as some places seem to find necessary. The food was outstanding. Pub grub, as such, with a twist. Fantastic in every way. Staff, younger staff, were very attentive but not intrusive. Nice to be served with a smile.


Wildens Restaurant

Braintree Central, Braintree
09/06/2019: Living in the village, we eat in the club or restaurant often. Today we had a party to celebrate our 40th Wedding anniversary. Could not be bettered. Great food, fantastic service( all the staff very cheerful) . Could not ask for me. Wonderful value for money.
07/06/2019: Visiting family in UK and met a friend for lunch here. So impressed with the service and food quality that we are going back with other friends. Shame we live in NZ, bit too far to come for a meal.


Riverside Spice

The Three Colnes, Braintree
22/05/2019: Wonderful freshly cooked food. Many dishes that I hadn’t seen before as well as all the traditional dishes that you're used to seeing. Great atmosphere and super service

26/01/2019: Popped in here for a random lunch stop with the family. Nothing negative to say in all honesty.


King William IV

Great Notley and Braintree West, Braintree
22/05/2019: Great little pub, always have a good few well kept ales on tap. It has a brewery on site and it is always worth trying the Moody Goose ales. If only they could be bittled.
03/02/2019: excellent local pub with brilliant variety of local drinks (Moody Goose, Adnams etc. Small in size but a friendly staff and friendly locals


Crofters Brasserie

Witham Chipping Hill and Central, Braintree, <20£
04/06/2019: From the G&T; in the beer garden to the friendly staff, amazing food and lovely atmosphere, you cannot fault this place!!
04/06/2019: Visited recently with a large party; everyone enjoyed their meals very much and the staff were nice and friendly. Great selection of drinks too - a must visit place if you’re looking for a decent place to eat, drink and socialise.


Petals Tea Room

Yeldham, Braintree
21/05/2019: I have visited Petals in many occasions and never have I been disappointed. Yes, sometimes there is a slight delay in the food service, but this is because all the food is freshly made - a small price to pay for a fresh, tasty lunch. The cakes are always to die for and the portions very generous. The staff are always welcoming and if you want some bargain plants too then visit the Garden Centre alongside. Great value for money. Can't recommend it enough.
08/05/2019: I visited Petals along with some family members for afternoon tea.
