it's a small bar area but I imagine it's big enough for you all to have a drink. I'd give them a call beforehand to check they are not full to capacity for the night you want to go

A chophouse is more than just a restaurant or a pub; it’s a British institution dating back to the origins of modern commercial trading in the late 17th century. Chophouses were exclusive places where businessmen conducted their affairs over hearty platefuls of food, usually grilled, and washed down with fine wines or well-kept local beers. The traditional nature of the food served was zealously maintained until the later 19th century, when influence from overseas introduced new and different styles of cooking. The Chophouse Braintree is keen to re-ignite the traditional chophouse philosophy; here you can enjoy fine food, exceptional wines, a relaxed atmosphere and - if you've chosen well ! - great company.
