A lovely location and regular venue for our itinerant cricketers before our regular fixture against West Mersea. The Peldon Rose has a very attractive interior and the benefit of spacious well maintained gardens. On this occasion the food was a touch disappointing. The chicken caesar came in quasi kit form. A limp lettuce and parmesan shaving base with rather large... More

We have eaten at The Peldon Rose for many years, but our meal today was a disaster. Mainly the lack of choice on the menu for lunch.. Usually there is a good selection from which to choose, but they have obviously changed their lunchtime menu and now only offer beef burger, fish and chips, vegetable lasagne or scampi. The special... More

Went in a group of 14, attentive efficient staff, shame the food was disappointing, in the main we nearly all went for fish, only the Salmon excelled the Scampi was bland and the battered fish and chips did not reach the standard of any 'Chippy' worth it's salt! Garden peas were like bullets, mushy ones dried out (as if cooked... More

Returning to the Peldon Rose didn't disappoint.The smartly dressed young staff... More

I have recommended this restaurant to all if my friends! The food was perfect, the staff were very polite and the overall experience was divine! The only fault (if I was being picky) is that the candle in the middle of the table went out half way through the meal! But other than that Well done peldon rose!

A friend and I went for Sunday lunch and it was a very pleasant experience. The staff were very polite and friendly and found the atmosphere to be very relaxed. The food was phenomenal with my friend declaring the pudding to be the best he has ever eaten! I wouldn't hesitate at all to recommend the Peldon Rose to any... More
