Cheap and cheerful

Last time I visited was OK (just) as it was full of family and quite noisy other diners. But that is the sort of venue it is, catering for the cheaper end of the market. A drinkers type pub with dining area off to one side. Having said that, it would not deter me from attending again for a... read more

My friends and I meet herefor a few pints when it opens at 9.00 am. Beer always on form and so cheap you can get 10 pints for 20 quid. Only downside is that although they open at 8.00 you can't buy alcohol until 9.00 am, however there is a 24 hour off licence just down the road.

Very poor - Unfriendly Rude – Unhelpful Sunday Manager. We often have meals in The Elms pub based in Leigh-on-Sea the food has always been cooked to perfection, we have recommended The Elms to hundreds of people/customers to our sons shop. Things have changed in The Elms for the worse recently. Staff just stand around talking to each other rather... More

Visited this pub for a quick meal, we waited 45 minutes for our food to come out and when it did they needn't have bothered. the Mixed Grill had obviously been sitting around for a while and was shrivelled and tough!! The Chicken burger was awful and comes complete with some blonde hair and eyelashes with mascara! Thank you but... More

The staff were pleasant and polite, they cleaned our table straightaway when we asked them to. There was a good range of real ale, and ciders (unfortunately we didn't have time to try then all!). Best of all there was no music played in the pub so we could eat our meal and have a conversation!! Hurray Only downside for... More

I feel compelled to write because, as the pub has gone downhill due to the poor quality of some of the current staff. Having visited many times recently I have been unimpressed by a number of factors which have spoiled what was until recently a good Wetherspoons. Among the issues encountered: - lack of staff - staff being more interested... More

Not long ago we went to the elms for a few drinks we were all served the first time round however the second time we got asked for ID... Once ID from everyone was given we was then asked again by the manager (tall one rather arrogant). The manager then began to interrogate the people who looked the youngest out... More

The tall manager should not be behind the bar, he is a permanently miserable, horrible, nasty man and should not be in the service industry. This post is not because of a one off gripe, I'm a regular and there are plenty of us here, and we are all equally aggravated. As a postscript I would like to say every... More
