Always a pleasure to return to Russells after our wedding reception there many years ago now. What a lovely evening we had. The staff and lovely surroundings made the evening really special. The food was of a very high standard and we could not fault it. Many thanks to Barry and his team for a really lovely evening. We will return... xx

Thank you so much to Barry and his team at the restaurant for making our Birthday celebration so memorable. The food staff and ambience were all just perfect and it seems impossible to imagine that any guest could have anything else other than an unforgettably pleasurable dining experience. Russells - We salute you.

We have been patrons for many years and find the end of the week in need of a break; some good food; winer and company. Barry and the team give this each Friday we attend and make us feel at home rather than walking into someone else's. As Barry has always been the main chef he designs his menus and is always accommodating for with mixing menus on adding something else if needed - especially rice pudding. Our thanks as always Mike and Lynne

We held our wedding breakfast and evening reception at Russells in November last year. From the first time we sat down with Barry to discuss our requirements, he was full of ideas and gave us great confidence that everything would be fine on the day, which it was! The staff were fantastic, our guests loved the fact that they had a choice of three starters and three main courses, and the food was delicious. Barry spent the entire day at the restaurant overseeing the event, and it went like clockwork. A belated thank you to him and his wonderful team for helping to make our day truly special and absolutely unforgettable!

Went to Russells last night for a special birthday celebration with the family. It was a perfect evening. I had been there before many years ago and I was not disappointed on my return. A very attractive restaurant with excellent service, attentive but not overbearing. I chose the Beef Rossini off a breathtaking menu and it was the finest piece of meat I can remember tasting. It simply melted in the mouth. The Saint-Emilion grand cru took everyone's breath. A beautiful, hidden gem of a restaurant that is as pricey as the quality demands. A place to take that special person for a real treat.

Just met up for lunch with a friend - we met half-way, and chose Russell's. It is a delightful place. Pleasant ambience, delicious, well presented food, and excellent service. Highly recommend it -shame it's not more obvious from the road.

I attended my dear friend's funeral wake on Friday 30th August, 2013. I have never visited your restaurant previously, but will definitely be back. Your staff were amazing. Your venue is intimate and homely. Everything was perfect and I have already recommended you to a family member who is seeking a suitable venue for husband's forthcoming 70th birthday. Thank you

We held our wedding reception at Russell's and it was wonderful - absolutely perfect! I had looked at lots of venues and found that Russell's offered the perfect atmosphere for my special day. Robert was fantastic from the outset, very professional, accommodating and takes a genuine interest in helping you to shape your day to make it just as you imagine. My husband had not visited it prior to the day and he too thought it was a great setting as did the rest of our guests. The food was beautiful, everyone commented on the delicious food, the service was excellent and attentive. Robert was around throughout, ensuring things ran smoothly and orchestrated a superb day. I would highly recommend Russell's - we had a perfect day we will never forget.

On the 19th of November 2011 we held our wedding celebration at Russells. The restaurant was meticulously prepared to receive our 118 guests who dined on a fabulous selection of canapes throughout the evening. The venue had plenty of space for the entertainment, dancing. Robert and the whole team made our special day strees free and memorable for all of the best reasons. We wouldn't change a thing! Peter & Mel Halls

My husband and I celebrated our first wedding anniversary yesterday and he couldn't have chosen better. We didnít know what to expect as no one we knew had eaten there recently, but as soon as you walk through the door you notice the stunning venue enhanced by the delicate decor, the immediate greeting of a friendly welcome and it just got better and better. We had the most exquisite food, imaginative, so beautifully presented and the flavours put together with such attention to detail it was obvious Chef and his team are passionate about their menu. What an absolute joy it was and one we hope to be able to repeat for many years to come. Thank you Chef.

Dear Russells. Just wanted to formally record our thanks and gratitude for the fantastic way in which you helped to rescue our recent 50th birthday celebration following a last minute change of venue. At only a few days notice, you made sure that everything was organised and that everyone in our group had an evening to remember. Robert was the perfect host - and oversaw everything with care and attention to detail. We will see you again soon.

We arranged from Australia for a Ruby Anniversary dinner for my brother and his wife. They rang us immediately after the dinner extolling the virtues of the Restaurant. The ambience, the food, the personal service, the attention to detail was OUTSTANDING. Robert the Restaurant Manager made their night a night to remember. He was kind, attentive, polite and nothing was too much trouble. We very highly reccommend Russells and definitely encourage everyone who plan a night out to visit them and enjoy all what the Restaurant has to offer, be it for a SPECIAL OCCASION or just a night out. Thank you to the Owner, Robert, and the staff. May we take this opportunity to wish you all the best in the future. Warm regards Kevin & Jennifer

Having come from the Cotswolds to Essex to live some 10 years ago we have found it difficult to find anywhere in the area to eat. Russells is by far streets in front of all other restaurants and eating establishments in the area. The sheer ambience of the place puts it way in front. We eat here regularly and the food is always consistently good. We would challenge anyone to find anything better in this area. Russells has it all

We would like to say a HUGE thank you, to all the staff at Russellís who made our wedding day so special. We would also like to say a big thank you to Robert for being great throughout the whole day and making everything run so perfectly, not only on the day but also on the run up to the wedding. He was there for our every need, and really did go above and beyond. Also thank you to the chef for the fantastic extra special touches he added, and obviously the AMAZING food. People are still talking about the wedding and the venue we choose. And each and every guest enjoyed themselves. I would recommend Russellís to anyone without hesitation for the perfect wedding day!!! Thank you all again, The Bride & Groom 8th May 2009
