After the sophistication of The Boatyard, we stopped at Osbornes for another drink (from the Crooked Billet) - from the sublime to the Gor Blimey - or should it be the other way round?! It's the unpretentiousness that we like. The synergy between Pub & Cockle Stall is never better illustrated than here. We're not even into seafood, but we... More

We have visited Osborne's many times during the fine weather months. During the hot weather, and at weekends it is extremely busy. We haven't eaten any food in the cafe area; we have always sat outside and bought a beer and wine from the Crooked Billet pub opposite. Clearly the two venues have an understanding as this is common practice.... More

As an ex Westcliff resident now living in Cyprus, My utopia after sailing there was to drop by Osbornes for a " Meze " of dressed crab, prawns and cockles. There was nothing better to sit outside with a full plate and think of nothing else than the food in front of me. Totally, totally delicious and oh how I... More

This was our first visit here: two drinks, 1/2 pint of cockles, plate of mussels and a dressed crab came in at £11. Very happy with the price and everything was fresh and very tasty. There's an outdoor area with a number of large tables and a few benches with a view of the water. Whilst you can't reserve, people... More

My Mother in law fancied cockles - so we took her to Osbourne's at Leigh on sea - how amazing is this place! Never been here before but had such a great time! Mum's in a wheelchair and we had to find a spot she could fit into - everyone was so kind and nothing was too much trouble. We... More

This place seems to have a lot of family history and they seem to have been in this area for many years(Old photos in cafe). It is self service and it is reasonable for fresh shellfish/fish. ( They also do ham sandwiches). It was nice to have a mug of tea or tins of drink. I had the platter of... More

Visiting Old Leigh again and had to stop by for a delicious tray of cockles. Friendly staff and great outside seating to enjoy them whilst taking in the views. A must visit if you're in the area and love seafood.
