Witham Chipping Hill and Central, Braintree
04/06/2020: This indian restaurant just keeps getting better each time I use it and I am so glad they have stayed open during the lockdown and also doing deliveries now which is a plus point.. Their food is amazing and the menu unique unlike other restaurants.. I have got to know the manager here now as I have become a regular and now always get him to recommend me a new dish and he never disappoints. Great service and food guys, keep up the good work.
01/06/2020: 10 out of 10 for food - was provided at the promised time. Portions were less than generous. The chicken curry filled the plastic container but was more sauce than chicken. The Prawn korma was what we used to call shrimps and far too few of them in the korma sauce. That said, I really enjoyed the food and would order again.



Witham Chipping Hill and Central, Braintree
27/06/2020: Absolutely rubbish, food is so terrible, overpriced definitely not recommend, will not order again from here
23/06/2020: This restaurant is by far our favourite and most frequented. So looking forward to visiting once again when lockdown is over, we as a family have really missed the dining experience in this great restaurant the last few months. In the meantime we have used the takeaway service a few times which is really good, always prompt, good portions and presentation, considerate delivery staff observing distancing rules. Well done guys you deserve every success, look forward to seeing you all soon, enjoying fabulous food and great hospitality!!


El Pulpo

Witham Chipping Hill and Central, Braintree
13/03/2020: This restaurant never fails to disappoint. The food was lovely and the service was also excellent. I like the laid back yet attentive feel to this restaurant. Looking forward to returning again soon.
04/03/2020: have reviewed el pulpo before but thoroughly deserves an update.had lunch here yesterday with wife and a friend. As usual lunchtimes tend to be rather quiet but no shortage of menu choices and the usual attentive service.All dishes beatifully prepared and no shortfull in portion sizes. Hope to get there one evening where i understand is much busier with lots of atmoshphere.Either way, a quiet lunchtime visit or a buzzy evening, this is a must go to venue.


47 The Street

Rayne, Braintree
22/03/2020: My partner was given a gift token to spend in the restaurant so we chose to go for a Sunday lunch there was choice from two menus we went for a starter, mains and dessert.My partner had a fish main meal and I had the pork Sunday lunch which was a change to the traditional Sunday Lunch as the pork came in a creamy sauce and vegetables.
20/03/2020: This is an amazing restaurant with superb seafood and meat and pasta. This is better than Roma and in Rayne, which is a great asset for north Essex. You must try it. You will not be disappointed. Please go there soon.

19/06/2020: Staff are very friendly in the cafe and always have smiles on their faces. Food absolutely delicious and a wide range of options to choose from, from jacket potatoes to sandwiches. I absolutely love their Nutella milkshake and is one of the best milkshakes I've ever had. Perfect to meet friends for lunch or coffee. Toilet facilities available here as well.
31/01/2020: Friendly, welcoming service every time with a good variety of lunchtime options (highly recommend the paninis!). This place has become our new favourite cafe to grab a bite to eat, and the fact that is serves great coffee is a bonus!

Blue Strawberry Bistrot

Hatfield Peverel, Braintree
28/05/2020: Just had a three course meal as a takeaway. I wasn't sure it would work but the food was every bit as tasty. Of course missed the lovely friendly waiting staff but it was very good! I can't wait for them to be open again but I would recommend this as a treat in the meantime.
23/03/2020: We had booked to eat at the Blue Strawberry for Mother's Day before the sad news that all restaurants were to be closed. The Blue Strawberry contacted us to let us know they were doing a take away service. Our Family (of 6) decided to take advantage of this, and it was delicious! Food was fresh, hot and packaged well.The staff were so friendly and efficient. We are just so pleased that the Blue Strawberry were offering this service and I would urge people to support them and get a takeaway during this difficult time - you won't be disappointed!


The Braxted Bakery

Witham Chipping Hill and Central, Braintree
06/03/2020: Nice selection of food in this country restaurant. Well prepared and tasty. Free parking close to restaurants. Particularly nice in the summer with out side seating. The down side is the narrow road leading to it.
20/02/2020: Weather awful but we had a wonderful afternoon tea, having booked. The food was delicious and the service excellent. We couldn't manage everything so brought a few bits home with us! We'll definitely come again as all the food and drinks looked amazing.


Mama Dells Cafe

Witham Chipping Hill and Central, Braintree
06/02/2020: I visit mama dells weekly, usually for a midweek breakfast with my youngest son. They are child friendly and accommodate his requests perfectly. Everything I’ve ordered here has been very nice. In particular the breakfasts are great. Milkshakes are really good too. Glad we have this place on our doorstep :)
01/02/2020: Visited here, after doing some research, in town for the ELO Encounter gig. I had an item from the specials board: Californian Omelette. It was wonderfully fresh tasting, and filled me up. The coffee was great, too! Recommended!

12/05/2020: Ordered fish and chips from here last night as my kids and I fancied a treat. Wow fantastic delivery, was here in time, very nice driver with mask and gloves left his delivery bag open on the step stood away and i just had to pull the carrier bag out by the handles. All very safe. As for the fish and chips, fabulous, so good I didnt leave any for my poor cats, luckly my son did. Thank you so much for making our night happier in this very depressing time. Will definitely use them again.
