Pinchos are pleased to announce winning a 5 star rating for hygiene and cleanliness in a recent award scheme run by the Borough Council.

Pinchos is friendly, vibrant yet sophisticated. There's no better place to meet up and sample some truly delicious food in this traditional Spanish Restaurant. All the dishes are made here on the premises and sourced from local suppliers. Pinchos import many of the ingredients directly from Spain to ensure the authenticity of the Tapas. Located on Baddow Road, conveniently near the Chelmsford Odeon cinema, Pinchos has been established for over 17 years and is reported to be the first Tapas restaurant in Essex. Owned and managed by Juan and Beverley Acevedo and partner Lynn Martin, Pinchos were previously based in Burnham on Crouch and Rayleigh and are delighted to have relocated to Chelmsford city centre.

At Pinchos we pride ourselves on our warm hospitality and this is reflected by the number of customers who pop by for a glass of  wine and a chat in the evening. As well as the jovial conversation, Juan provides  evening entertainment on his acoustic guitar playing Classical Spanish music along with a few old favourites. We always look forward to giving you a warm welcome.

Tapas are more than just a kind of food, they represent a style of eating and a way of life that is typically Spanish and yet adapts perfectly to England.There is no formal set course meal in a Tapas bar, customers order a selection of dishes and everyone pitches in, then they can try some more. It is relaxed and informal like the street life of Spain where Tapas began, many customers have commented that being at Pinchos reminds them of being on holiday in Spain (much as a little imagination may be required with our weather!).

Tapas translates literally as “LID” and is widely believed to have evolved from the Andalusion custom of bar owners presenting customers with a slice of ham or sausage covering their glass of sherry, as it became a part of tradition so the number of dishes increased.

At Pinchos we have tried to capture the most popular choices for your delight.
