22 years of bringing what we love to the people of chelmsford
The heart of Russells Restaurant is a magnificent timbered tithe barn, Grade II listed as being of architectural and historical Importance. The barn has been dated by experts as being originally built in 1372, so making this one of the oldest surviving buildings in the Chelmsford area.
As you walk in to the restaurant, you will be amazed; the spectacular high vaulted ceiling with its magnificent beams, you will be greeted by staff that will do anything to make your visit just perfect. To the left as you walk in is a tastefully decorated lounge area where drinks and nibbles are served. Then as you walk through the main restaurant you will see high up the barn balcony overlooking the main restaurant. This area creates a wonderful dramatic view while you enter a world of elegant fine food, wine and service. To the top of the restaurant, to the left is our green gallery, a long room with its artistic muriel on the far wall, it’s the perfect place for any private party.
Russells Restaurant opened in 1989, but was taken over by Barry Warren-Watson the present proprietor and executive head chef in 1991, where he continues to take the restaurant from strength to strength. He has always had a hands on personal touch to the business, and with his excellent team hopes to take the business right in to the future.
