The Wine Cellar is an independent restaurant and bar located on Duke Street, Chelmsford.

Food is served at The Wine Cellar from Wednesday to Saturday, serving lunch from 12 noon until 2.30pm, and dinner from 6pm to 9pm. The bar is open from Wednesday to Saturday, from 11.30am until late.

The restaurant appears cosy and charming with plenty of rustic wooden tables and chairs, exposed brick work, candles and soft lighting.

Alongside an impressive wine list, you will also find a seasonal menu designed by in-house chef James Sargeant, plus a Saturday bottomless brunch menu.

The main menu is seasonal and subject to local availability, however you might find on the menu starters such as grilled mackerel with beetroot, horseradish and yoghurt, and house favourites such as bolognese bonbons served with truffle and parmesan.

Main dishes sound just as tempting, with a regular fish of the day, braised pork belly, steaks, and wild mushroom gnocchi. Desserts may include sticky toffee pudding served with butterscotch and chantilly cream, or perhaps you'll go for the warm chocolate brownie served with raspberry, ice cream and chocolate sauce.

The Wine Cellar has plenty of cosy corners, perfect for an intimate meal or a quiet drink.

The restaurant also holds a number of private events, such as wine tastings accompanied by a charcuterie and cheese board, and French wine tastings accompanied by a grazing board. Spaces are limited for these events so book early to avoid disappointment. 

The bar menu has an extensive selection of good quality white and red wine, available by the glass or bottle.You will also find bubbles on the menu, including prosecco, and champagne, plus a good selection of dessert wine and port.

It is advisable to book for food, you may also want to book for drinks only, tables can be reserved upon request. Talk to the friendly team about your plans.
