Excellent home cooking style food and great value

Love this place. Great specials for example Steak with Garlic butter or fresh Cod strips with chips and salad. This time I had the mixed grill (steak, liver, pork chop, lamb chop, sausage, egg, bacon, tomatoes, mushrooms and excellent chips. Good range of desserts as well.

Many thanks to Dean and staff, for a wonderful party, laid on for my husband Bobs 60th birthday. Great food, full Christmas dinner in June! Nothing too much trouble, all our requests dealt with. All the guests were delighted with their meals, and the bill at the end of the night was reasonable. Would certainly have another "family do" there.

This has hardly changed in the fifty years that I have known it. It does not seem to be as cheap these days as I remembwer it. Still serving traditional food the Daveys way

Four of us had our main meal here on Sunday 10th. The restaraunt was clean and very busy. After ordering our meal from a really good and varied menu, we didn't have to wait too long at all considering the restaraunt was packed. The waitress was attentive and the food was presented well and tasted delicious. Reasonably priced too. We... More

Used to get good food here, and am usually easily satisfied. My omelette was cooked on a griddle - greasy and flat, of melted plastic consistency, and my chips tasted like roast potatoes. I ordered chips because I don't like roast potatoes! Oh, and one of those tiny bottles of wine (3 for £10 at Morrison's) costs £6 here! No... More

Me: fish and chips, strawberry milkshake and chocolate pudding with custard Him: Steak pie with veg and potatoes and an ice cream sundae Both meals were absolutely superb. Never seen so much steak in a pie! Service was quick and friendly and we would happily eat here again if visiting Clacton.
