Top tip - you get a discount here if you show your theatre ticket.The food and choice are good and the menu should have... read more

Frequently visit as great kids menu and so reasonably priced. Children are occupied with colouring sets and staff very attentive. Service is quick and best fish and chips in Frinton. Kids love visiting - menu has plenty of choice for everyone and always recommend to friends visiting too.

Slow and sloppy service. Average food and suits a noisy family rather than a dining couple. Food the same from my freezer to oven to mouth. Because of this, not good value for money. My partner and I would not return.
