Our story

During these unprecedented times, we are sorry to say that our pub is closed until further notice.

In 1874 Chelmsford was home to Emanuel Wybrow’s Bootmaker shop, a popular family run business in the busy high street serving the community for nearly a decade. Today we bring Wybrow’s business into the 21st century, welcome to The Bootmaker.

Enjoy a relaxed atmosphere bursting with character as we create contemporary yet traditional cocktails with the freshest ingredients, serve bespoke seasonal dishes, and boast attentive service.
