Bell Street, Great Baddow, Chelmsford, CM2 7JS

Russells may look unassuming from the outside, but its simple facade hides the grand interior of one of Chelmsford’s oldest surviving buildings. At its heart is a timbered tithe barn dating from the 13th century, where high vaulted ceilings and imposing beams create a dramatic, sophisticated restaurant area – one which is perfectly suited to the elegant food and wine that is served here. Elsewhere, the lovely, relaxed lounge is a cosy spot in which to enjoy pre-dinner drinks and nibbles. On top of all this, helpful staff go above and beyond to make sure your visit is a memorable one.

The very best local and international ingredients are showcased on the exquisite à la carte menu, where you’ll find a selection of dishes to suit all palates. Perhaps you’ll start with chicken liver parfait set with Madeira jelly, toasted wholemeal bread, wild garlic butter and watercress salad, or seared king scallops served with petits pois à la Français, shredded lettuce, salmon roe and saffron crème reduction – a delicious way to begin. For the main event, choose from the likes of seared saddle of wild boar with crushed truffled purple potatoes, buttered baby carrots, forest berry jus, and fillet of farmed stoned bass served on a bed of roasted peperonata, spinach, Parisian potatoes, and crispy fries. The dessert selection encompasses a magnificent array of treats. The delightful caramelised bread and butter pudding with agave nectar anglaise and milk ice cream, and the imaginative Hedge Row of apple purée, frozen elderflower liqueur, forest berries, toasted oats and crystalised puff pastry are just two of the irresistible options available.
