Booked for Mothers day in the evening. Fantastic service and really proactive staff that were very alert and friendly. My daughter has a peanut allergy and they had no problem informing the chef and checked the food for us without making a fuss. We had a great evening and will be back again. thank you

I visited Wildwood yesterday for Mother’s Day and unfortunately my family and I are unhappy with our visit. Definitely understaffed on a day like Mother’s Day is unfortunate but the lack of good service was also terrible. We sat down at 1 and waited over an hour for our main courses. My sister had chips poured down her due to a clumsy waitress and my steak sandwich was freezing. We we’re left gasping as we required more drinks during our meal and found it hard to get the attention of the tiny amount of staff who would instead stare into space. The music yesterday was way too loud and this only caused people to be talking even louder to hear eachother over the music. When I booked I was told that Wildwood would kindly request the table back at 14:30 however, this was never going to be the case with only eventually eating our mains gone past 2pm, having been there over an hour already. My 5 year old nephew was starving waiting as we all were. I would’ve complained to the manager had I seen more staff. Drinks weren’t cleared away so we’re using up the space on the table and we unfortunately didn’t stay for desert as planned due to the bad service, loud environment and minimal staff. I can only say I’m disappointed with Wildwood Chelmsford as me and my family frequently visit and this was a special occasion being Mother’s Day and none of my family were happy or satisfied.

My starter was delivered 10 minutes later than everyone else's in my party so by the time they had finished, I was only just starting. We had to ask about when our mains would be coming. My partner and I ordered the same main, Philadelphia steak and cheese sandwich. His arrived first and had barely any steak and no cheese. Mine arrived later and had a good amount of steak but barely any cheese and a huge leaf of lettuce just shoved in the bottom. My partner couldn't be bothered to complain as it would have just taken twice as long to get another main. The music was very loud and we could barely hear each other speak. After we had finished our dessert we had to try to ask for the bill 3 times as the staff were just rushing around and not paying attention to us. At one point I looked directly at the waiter as he walked past me to ask for the bill and he completely ignored me. I felt that if we had got up and left without paying, no one would have noticed!

Was amazing I told them it was mine and my husbands first wedding anniversary and when we arrived they had set up a beautiful secluded table with a glass of champagne each free of charge and the service was just outstanding all evening!

I took advantage of your 50% discount vouchers but would have been happy paying full price. Good food and we were well looked after by the staff and manager.

Would have preferred one waiting staff who was attentive to our table rather than 3 different ones all who were slow to respond!

Felt as if the staff were rushing us to order and then tried to take starter plate away whilst someone still eating. Main course arrived immediately after starter finished with two mains slightly delayed for a group of seven and a side of chips forgotten about.

Very attentive service. We were a big party of 23 and our food was brought out together and piping hot. Any replacement drinks and any requests were swiftly delivered. Friendly staff and delicious food. Would definitely use again.

I was a little disappointed with the quality of the food for the price. I think I would of preferred to have off the menu as I have done before. The service was a little distant as the resturant wasn’t very busy. But I do love wildwood so will go again.

Good food and service however it felt a little like being in a harvester due to the amount of young children who were continually walking around and around the restaurant. There were several very young children who were just wandering around the restaurant and crawling/falling up the steps next to our table, also blocking people from entering and trying to leave the restaurant. Something should have been said to the parents or guardians of the children, if not for the other guests experience, but for the child’s own health and safety concerns. We were also sat next to a large party which had children too. Not really a restaurant I would visit as a couple anymore.
