Our Ethics

We are a strong believer in supporting local business, which is why around 80% of everything we serve is sourced from farms, producers or suppliers based within just 30 miles from where you stand. We are proud to say that by supporting us, you are in turn support local business and good people!

Our Food

We make pretty much everything from scratch. Our head chef, Richard, is amongst the most talented chefs working in Essex at the moment. Richards CV is incredibly impressive and as a chef could comfortably work in any top restaurant in the country, but instead he chooses to work here and cook for you.

Had a brilliant bottomless proseco lunch at the Chop House last Saturday. The ingredaints are all locally sourced and of the highest quality. This is matched with the decor and ambiance of the restaurnt coupled with the awesome customer service provided by the staff. Cant recommend enough!!

Best restaurant in Braintree without a doubt, highly recommend, the food it’s great, high standarts and great staff,special thank you to Victoria our waitress and the head chef for the amazing food. We will be back .

Myself, my partner, and her grandmother visited the chophouse, Braintree recently and had the two course deal for £17. The fish and chips were amazing and the portion size was just right, followed by a chocolate brownie Sunday which we devoured. We would love to go back for the bottomless prosecco on satrudays! See you soon Chophouse.

 

Very pleasant and relaxing atmosphere. The food was excellent and cooked to perfection and though on the expensive side for Braintree is well worth the money spent. Staff were pleasant attentive but not over powering well worth going to and will be back again for certain

Found this place by chance on a visit to Braintree. We went in for Sunday lunch, although they were extremely busy and we hadn’t booked, they fitted us in. And we were glad they did, the food was amazing, the lightest Yorkshire pudding I have ever tasted. For dessert I opted for the Eaton Mess, again it was the best. The service was great and all of the staff were very welcoming.

As always food and cocktails amazing. Nice and friendly staff. Only negative was a guy was playing a guitar which was nice but a bit too loud so we couldn’t hear each other very well.
Valerie Webb
