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.

An excellent lunch

We took two close friends for lunch here and as before the service and quality were excellent. The environment is formal without being over the top and dress is casual. Thoroughly recommended.

This restaurant offers great food, lovely décor and attentive staff. The menu is varied, and reasonably priced, we were a large party and I think nearly everything on the menu was tried, no complaints from anyone. The croquets st Jacques were particularly enjoyed as was the duck. Excellent for a romantic meal or family get together. They also offer a... More

Went for dinner last week. Incredible food and service. The chorizo lasagne starter was great as were the spring rolls. The steak was perfect and so was all the side dishes. Quite expensive but good for a special occasion

good food, good service and tables spaced out so you don't feel cramped. Good place to take someone for a quiet lunch as you can walk around the Barleyland craft shops behind and also very atmospheric in the evenings

First visit to the Magic Mushroom for a while and nice to see it maintains its high standards. Tempura soft shell crab to start was very nice and I really enjoyed the Dover sole main course. Special mention to the chorizo lasagne starter which was also very nice. We will be back soon.
