Nice to see they have special menu`s to order from as well as a set menu, they also serve alcohol. Not over priced and in a central location.

This is undoubtedly the best English restaurant in Clacton and the surrounding area and I have no hesitation recommending it to everyone. The food is always freshly cooked with the best ingredients, tasty, hot (where applicable) and the salad is delicious. Friendly and efficient staff, fully licensed or a lovely cup of tea.

We had the 3-course set lunch at £10.95. The soup of the day was roast vegetable and was very tasty. Our main courses were roast chicken, roast beef and liver and bacon, all of which were good. The roast potatoes and cabbage were especially good. The restaurant reminded me of an American diner.

Have been using Daveys for about 3 years now, the food is good old fashioned English food, cooked the way it should be. The service is always good although sometimes it can be a bit busy (because it is popular) and you may have to wait a bit. IT IS WORTH THE WAIT.

Good food with plenty of choice and very reasonable prices. Only drawback is that it closes at 6pm. A very popular place with locals and visitors and one of the best places to eat in Clacton if you want fresh, home-cooked food.
