I had many comments from guests about the friendliness of the staff and quality of the food and I would like to make a special mention of Amy and Daniel who could not have been more helpful! You have a great, hardworking team who have contributed to an enjoyable evening.”

Julia Bell


“Thank you so very much for everything you and your super efficient team did to make our celebration lunch so successful. Everything ran so smoothly. So many guests commented to me on how delightful the venue was and how helpful the staff were. Please could you pass my thanks on to Paula and her team. Also many thanks to all those who helped get the projector sorted! I am so pleased that Alex and Anna chose the cricket ground for their celebrations!”

Alison Widgery


“It was a huge success, thank you for all your efforts in making it great. I’ve had a lot of people say that the venue worked really well and it was nice that it was all contained in one room. The bar is located centrally which helped and there was plenty of space for people to stand and dance. It was by far our best Christmas Party yet! So thank you!”



“Many thanks for Friday. We did have rather too many drop outs, but those who attended had a great time. I have had several complimentary comments about the food, venue, music, etc.
Most people were very impressed with the whole package.”

E2V Finance Team


“As the national leader in home improvements, we need a professional, local venue to hold our regional sales meetings. Essex Cricket County Club fit the bill; they are easily accessible from our main Essex office, offer a variety of meeting rooms, with appetizing, cost-effective lunch menus, plenty of parking and provide a friendly, helpful service. They are always our first choice!”

Jenny Westlake, Anglian Home Improvements


“We decided to hold our property auctions at a well-known Essex venue. The Pavilion and Marquee proved a fantastic venue with everything we needed, car parking, refreshments and a wonderful sporting backdrop. Everyone at The County Ground was very helpful and nothing was too much trouble. The result was a great event and a good auction.”

Paul Bridgeman, The Home Partnership, Chelmsford


“As a regular client, I cannot recommend the venue or the service provided highly enough. Very professional and very friendly.”

Catherine Willis


“The catering was of a very high standard and we felt very well looked after. I intend to run another training day at Essex County Cricket Club Ground and I would therefore definitely recommend this venue to anyone thinking of planning an event.”

Donna Martin, Choices Practitioner, EYPDAS Essex Young People’s Drug & Alcohol Service


“The catering was excellent in terms of what was provided and flexibility to suit our meagre budget. Something many venues are not willing or able to do. In summary our experience was extremely positive. All the staff involved were so helpful and went the extra mile to make the day a success. We appreciated the ‘can do’ approach.”

Robert Jack


“I can not thank you and your staff enough for helping me arrange another successful end of season presentation for our club.
