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.

We used to go to Daveys every weekend but gradually noticed the food was not as good as it used to be. Hadn't been in there for a few months but thought I would pay another visit , which was a mistake. Food took around 20 mins to turn up even though the restaurant was not busy. My omelette was...

Lovely food,was very busy tho,very popular with the OAP's ideal place to take anyone in their older generation! Food it's well portioned,and was very clean in there,I did find one of waitress's moody,as if she's doing you a favour by her serving you! I won't be put off by her rudeness! So I will be visiting again!

Don't be put off by the staff, the service is first class. A mixed clientele so when I ordered waited with trepidation. Cumberland sausage, mash and vegetables. Unbelieveable, the vegetable portions were superb, fresh not frozen, al dente, for £6.20 no complaints. Will use Daveys regularly when I move to Clacton permanently.

If you want a real home cooked meal that doesn't cost a lot, then visit Daveys. Yummy food , clean & tidy, very welcoming relaxed atmosphere . I would recommend this place not only is it all that I've described but the staff are polite & do not rush you in anyway.

Visited by accident, just across this little restuarant. It's frequented by the mature clientele, but they know their stuff. Excellent food , fantastic service and great value for money !!!

My partner and I had a full English and although the bacon was better quality than other places it was still fairly average. Really clean table but the waitress could have smiled....
