When visiting Clacton this restaurant is worth a visit

What a great place, never been before and from the outside I didn't expect much but was total surprised. The staff were extremely friendly, the prices were very cheap in comparison to the portion sizes and quality of food. My only down side to this restaurant was too many tables and chairs but I... read more

What a wonderful place ! Been there several times and can't fault anything ! The food is out of this world, its probably cheaper than many of the cafes around, and although twice I've had to queue for a few minutes for a seat its worth the wait. I suppose its always a good sign when all the local cafes... More

Visited pre Pantomime on 19th December in the afternoon, Not sure if Daveys is a café, restaurant or my mums front room !! What I mean is excellent service, excellent food, good old fashioned food cooked just the way you like it. Daveys is well worth a visit and will definitely go again Thanks

Been going to Davey's for years now, ever since I discovered how good it was. This has to be one of the best cafes in Essex, if not in Britain. It is inexpensive enough for me, an OAP, to go there every day for breakfast or dinner, and every Sunday for a roast, but it's classy enough to go for... More

Food is ok but over priced, although the table and chairs are nice, it is very cramped and not very comfortable, staff dont seem happy.

We arrived 10 minutes before they were closing but we're still able to order three hot meals, including one child-sized roast dinner and drinks for all. The staff were friendly and non-intrusive and didn't make us feel we needed to rush just because they were closing. Really tasty food at a reasonable price that didn't break the bank. Lovely!
