An excellent product starts with the careful selection of the finest fresh ingredients. We source local produce whenever possible, our meats are reared at Essex farms and our fish is delivered fresh daily with much of our fruit and vegetables grown at home in the kitchen garden.

Went for a valentines day lunch at the Magic Mushroom was a nice surprise as have been here twice before a few years ago now but I thought it was a little expensive for what you got! £58.50 3 course meal with a glass of champagne on arrival. The duck Bon bons I had to start came up rather dry... More

The food is always of fine quality and the atmosphere is pleasant. What I also like is that tables are well spaced across the restaurant, so you are not listening to other people's conversation!

Visited last week and as always generally very good all round. service was prompt and staff friendly without being effusive. My companions and I thought food was well cooked and tasty. I thought portions for a man were somewhat on small side but I need to lose weight in any event. Imaginative menu for the set meal with a choice... More

the guy serving us decided he knew more about the wine that my wife wanted, and the wine he wanted her to have. No return visit for us

The Magic Mushroom has it all. Excellent food, amazing service, and a great ambiance. We went there on Valentine week end, and can truly say that this was the best meal that we have ever eaten out. The food was superb, the waitresses were really on the ball and the actual restuarant is really lovely and also comfortable. Not the... More

Regularly eat here for lunch for girlie friends birthdays, special ocasions etc. Never experienced poor service & food always been superb. My husband finds portions on small side & doesn't like the low ceilings as says he feels like he's eating in a portacabin, but I love it ! Maybe its a woman thing

We went for my birthday and it was a lovely evening. The menu was varied and we were very happy with our choices. The only complaint was that my dessert was a little bland -the Strawberry Plant Pot. Lovely looking restaurant. Polite and professional staff. Well worth a visit and we will be going back at some point.
