Athmosphere and service are n/a. Finish at home food was fantastic.

The Mother’s Day lunch was the perfect gift as mum had been shielding. The food was beautifully packaged even down to the small piping bags, clear instructions to finish meal and how it should be presented. The food was exceptional and will definitely be ordering again. Collection was well organised with amazing staff.

Mothers Day - finish at home meal. Really enjoyed the meal - easy to prepare - booking and pick up easy. My only reservation in recommending this to others would be the cost per head. It was nice to make Mothers Day a special occasion with lovely food, very clear instructions on how to prepare and minimal effort on our part. Looking forward to eating in the restaurant when I can enjoy the atmosphere properly.

Our mothers day meal was superb. Best of all was that the lamb was pink even after putting it in the oven following your instructions! An excellent experience. Congratulations to all your team for producing such a memorable meal. We will be back for your Easter Offering!

We have loved the Chesil at home service. The food has been fantastic, and it's fun to be involved by finishing off your own dishes and trying my hand at 3-star presentation! Please continue Chesil, although we can't wait until you are back open properly.

We absolutely loved it. Waited this long to try ‘at home’ as the menus never 100% appealed, but we heard great things through word of mouth, wish we had tried sooner. Fantastic food and the team in the restaurant were so cheerful and lovely when we picked up. Will definitely repeat!

Really enjoyed the Chesil at Home meal but the duck breast was quite tough. Everything else was great and very tasty. We will order again.

The above is for the Sunday roast. It was all delicious, particularly the meat and the gravy, with good instructions. It would have been nice to be able to chose either a starter or a dessert - the obligatory dessert was no good for me as I cannot eat very sweet things. (Beautifully made though!) Atmosphere and Service were not applicable. due to being at home! 😀

I ordered the Valentine’s Day “takeaway” and it was totally fantastic! The food was delicious, as I’d of course expect from the Chesil, and instructions really easy to follow. My partner and I had a really lovely evening at home, and it made an otherwise dull lockdown Valentine’s Day really special, thank you. Looking forward to eating in with you very soon!

We had the Sunday Lunch option (which we ate in the evening) and which we thought was excellent. It made such a change from lock-down cooking! Very comprehensive and well packaged with clear instructions. The only criticism was that the nut roast was over-salty. We have already reordered and look forward to the duck on Saturday!

Absolutely fabulous, everything.Would you consider doing it again for Valentine's day in the future i.e. post lockdown? Normally we don't bother to celebrate it, don't really want to be sitting with a load of other couples, much better dressing up, lighting the candles and having it at home!

Picked up our Finish at Home Valentines Meal. It was excellent and such a treat. I am a keen cook but it was like a little mini lesson on how to present the food. Would definitely do again but hoping not having to as I would rather be sat in the wonderful restaurant itself very soon.
