This was my second time eating at the Chelsea and both times we all really enjoyed it. Suitable for a meal with friends or a family meal. Staff were very friendly. Meals were delicious and great portions. Great value. Would definitely recommend.

What is happening when the Chelsea is making the locals and regulars unwelcome. Atmosphere isn't great and female staff on the floor are lacking in personality needed in customer service employment. Been a regular for 20 years but will be a while until I'm back.More
