The New London ~ Review

On one of our City's most iconic thoroughfares, sits an inconspicuous building, for many years a traditional pub, before that a working mans Inn.

Now at 147 New London Road, we can proudly recommend the New London. Up until recently and better known for a long time as the Red Lion, the New London trades as one of Chelmsford's fine dining establishments.

Offering an eclectic mix of contemporary cuisine with a classic twist.

On arrival we were greeted by a generously stocked ultra modern bar, being a sister establishment to the Bottle Bureau there are plenty of different Gins on offer! of course along with a varied selection of beers, wine and other spirits.

This very modern restaurant, offers a clean, crisp eating environment, with low lighting, dark tables and a pleasant smooth ambience.

The dishes were well thought out and put together in such a way that whatever you choose, nothing will disappoint your palate. We recommend even the most unadventurous diners amongst us, should order differently when visiting here, you won't be disappointed.

Pardon us as we turn into Masterchef narrators but there is no other way to do our dinner justice. Starters was heritage carrots, salsa verde, almonds and yoghurt and a dish of Scallops, crab cakes, lemon emulsion, Mango gel and wasabi foam. For Main courses we enjoyed braised pork belly, black pudding mash, tender stem and a red wine jus. Fillet of beef, hand cut chips, oven dried tomatoes and peppercorn sauce.

Everything complimented each other perfectly, the steak positively melted in the mouth and cut like butter, the pork belly was seasoned to perfection and was just enough to be comfortably full. These were both well thought out dishes and leave you content.

The staff Andy and Jay were attentive, professional and had a passion for the business and thrived on questions we threw a them about the food and owners.

We see this restaurant going form strength to strength and can more than take on the raft of chain restaurants popping up in the City.
