Welcome to Chop Bloc. We're housed in an 18th century former brewer's building bringing you three floors of exceptional steaks and burgers, including our very own Bloc Bar upstairs serving the finest cocktails in town.
We're passionate about meat and have learnt about all aspects of the farm-to-fork process. We've trained with the best, tasted the best and now we're bringing the very best in steak and burgers to Chelmsford.

We travelled vast distances across the USA to seek out and consume the most awesome and lip-smackingly good burgers - a long and arduous adventure!
After the meat sweats subsided, we came round to realise that the secret to a truly great burger is not only in using the best beef; in fact the real secret is in the cooking...
We use the original 1940s American smash burger technique - smashing the meat on the griddle and forming the patty as it cooks, ensuring a crispy outer shell which seals in the super-tasty, juicy beef.
All of our burgers are made from matured whole chucks, ground in-house and “smashed” on the grill. Served in an artisan brioche bun with sliced lettuce, onion, tomato and Monterey Jack cheese.
All our steaks are sourced from Hereford cattle.
Hereford cattle live on farms here in the UK. They graze freely on grass on farms that adhere to strict animal welfare practices.
The Hereford is one of the UK's oldest native beef breeds, originating in the County of Herefordshire in the mid 1700s. Hereford cattle reared in the traditional way produce quality beef that is naturally marbled, succulent and full of flavour.
We source premium‑grade grass‑fed Hereford beef, which is internationally renowned for its natural flavour, tenderness and succulence. All cattle are reared happily in the British countryside.
There'll be no cutting corners at Chop Bloc, as all of our meat is aged on site and sliced to order by our chefs who are expertly trained to butcher meat in-house.
The Grass Really Is Greener
Herefords raised on grass produce an excellent 'marbled' beef that is higher in the essential fatty acid omega‑3 and is full of flavour.
At Chop Bloc, our experienced chefs take the time to cut all steaks straight from the primal. You choose the cut, sold by the gram, and we'll work our magic in the Josper grill.
