Went for the second time having had an average experience last time a few years back and sadly won't be returning. The staff are friendly and attentive but the music is too loud and "radio 1" and for the prices charged, the food is very hit and miss. Admittedly, mine was a hit with the scallops followed by the fillet... More

I went here for my partners 30th in a march. There was a large party of us and we had a set menu. I had the fish with pine nuts - it's the kind of dish I still talk about now in August! Service was great and it really did feel they wanted to make an effort for his birthday.

Visited on Saturday 2nd August having been very disappointed with the menu at Orsett Hall. We chanced our arm and telephoned enquiring for a last minute table and the always very helpful staff at the Magic Mushroom did not disappoint us. Although we had to sit outside under the umbrellas and patio heaters it was very comfortable and enjoyable. We... More

I have to say that my experience of the Magic Mushroom was actually a little bi-polar. The venue is great, the staff chatty and helpful, the service was speedy and the menu looked absolutely great with a wide variety of food. The food came out and again, it all looked great, it was hot, didn't take too long, very well... More

Booked a table for a Wednesday evening, knowing this restaurant is always busy as we have dined here several times now. Yet again the quality & presentation of the food top notch. As with every visit we are torn what to order from the Menu choices, which change seasonally to suit. I, as did 1 of our other guests, went... More

Various guests at a family lunch party were caught up in a massive delay on the M25 so our arrival, and therefore the start of the meal, was considerably delayed. The staff at the restaurant appeared unflustered by this, although it must have been awkward for them, and served a delicious meal to the twelve of us. We were impressed... More

Second visit here with the first being five star but on this occasion we we're let down by a 45 minute wait for our food. We did not order a starter just a main course to be followed by a desert. Sat at our table at 7.50pm chased our food at 8.30pm which suddenly arrived 5 minutes later. When we... More

We visited with a group of friends and my husband and myself felt for a very expensive restaurant, it was nothing special. Our food was good and well presented but we had to wait a long time in between each course. The staff were very friendly and helpful and because of them, we still had a very enjoyable evening.
