Our Story

About us

Exquisite small plates, unique cocktails and elegant wines brought together in a sumptuous and relaxed environment. Chez Burton brings you that fine dining experience, without any of the formalities.

The menu was absolutely amazing, fresh and mouth watering - blew our mind and taste buds. The staff and service provided was on point throughout the evening. This is definitely a must visit. We will definitely be returning to try out there next menu (which is seasonal).

Recently dined here for my 30th birthday meal. Had an amazing time, food was so nice! The service was top quality making us feel welcome and went above and beyond. Even presented me with a birthday card from all of the staff and a birthday shot. Highly recommend the cocktails. We will be returning again soon!

I've been here twice and not been disappointed either time. The food is incredible, the service is really friendly and the atmosphere is perfect for an intimate dinner. My new fave place in Baldock.

Teri Nowlan

Exquisite. What an amazing concept. A menu of carefully considered and constructed starters. The sharing concept taken to another level. Great atmosphere. Would definitely book a table at the bar next time. This new restaurant, run by a fun husband and wife team - Mr & Mrs Burton! - hits it on every level. Charming staff, excellent food and a great atmosphere. We'll definitely be back. A lot!

We went on opening night and despite what must have been a stressful time for Neill, Jacqui and all the staff it was Brilliant! Excellent food , perfect wine selection and attentive service. A much needed addition to dining choice in Baldock.

Popped in for a cocktail last night. Was really impressed, the welcome was lovely, really nice atmosphere. And the drinks were amazing! Probably the best cocktail I’ve tasted in a long time. Can wait to come back and try the food. Just the place Baldock needs.

Our food philosophy

Small Plates

The concept of small plates dining comes from the idea of trying new culinary ideas and sharing plates. Why limit yourself by having to choose one plate of gorgeous food per visit, when you can order multiple small plates and experiment with the menu.
