Places Been in here several lunch times and after work about 4pm to have spicy parsnip soup and a roll for £3.30 or butternut squash soup and a roll for the same price. Both taste delicious and felt reasonably healthy to eat. Place is clean, tidy and there is plenty of room to sit. The service is polite and efficient and they have a newspaper stand with a Daily Mail, Daily Express, Mirror and an advertising table for leaflets. Advertised outside that they had a roof terrace which I will try next time, if I have time.

The Dessert Shop

We stopped in here for a cup of earl grey, sweet potatoe cakes and tomato, lentil and fetta cheese salad (tasted gorgious) and a slice of some lovely chocolate cake. Husband had the chocolate cake, I had the salad. Everything was lovely and husband's eyes popped out of his head at the desserts. They tasted as lovely as they looked and I also got to have a look through the Wiltshire/Salisbury times magazines which had lots of interesting information about places to see and visit.

Places This is closed in half-term, but because it is staffed by volunteers you can get a cup of tea for 40p, which is a bargain, the Bean in Here Cafe in Havengore, Springfield by comparison gives you a pot of tea (a small pot) for £2.

However if you have forgotten your sandwiches and want somewhere cheap for lunch this is a good place. Also if you are looking for volunteer opportunities then this is a place to enquire.

Have eaten here several times in the past, but it is a bit pricy. Had a fried breakfast here with Ewan's and it is not the same quality as Rose's Cafe (for the same price). This cafe did suffer a fire a few years ago and when it re-opened it opened as it was before the fire. Little changes there. Its the only place in town that does Knickerbocker Glories though, which are a particular indulgence of mine.

This is a Tex Mex Restaurant in the city centre of Chelmsford. It used to be a tumbleweeds and various other names above the door. Have enjoyed tapas a few times here with friends and family and the food has always been reasonably priced.

Been going here for a while, used to be called Edwards and probably a few other things. Maybe new name means new management. They do several 2 for 1 offers for lunch during the day like burger and chips & lasagnage for £5.99 (without drink on top), it is a good price for two to sit somewhere and eat in comfort but if you only have an hour for lunch, again it is a bit tricky to fit everything in.
