Nice Sunday roast

Very nice little restaurant and very nice dining experience. Well done! We had roast dinner on Sunday for 4 people. Everything spot on and prices are very good for a value!

Usually just use this place for a pint after work, however I decided to take a client for lunch, so have a cheeky burger....wow ! Nicest burger I have had in a long time and great portion or chips, and all for a very reasonable price. Can't think of a better place in town

Visited at the weekend for an evening meal with my partner. Had a pleasant cocktail while waiting for our table which was delicious! Food was incredible, staff informative and helpful. Overall a great place. Highly recommended.

Really, really excellent food. Best we've had in ages. Great, friendly service. My only possible critique is that it was really warm in the restaurant. It was one of the warmer days but even at 10pm we were a bit sweaty. I don't know if air con is an option? Don't wear a jumper! :)

Could not fault this place from the moment we arrived was made to feel welcome the bar man was very keen to let you know what drinks he could offer and made us lovely non alcholic cocktails. Food really lovely portions good size and very well presented. The waiters and chef lovely as we'll . Don't hesitate go.

Four of us had dinner here. The food was way better than the average for southend. The bar downstairs is nice too. The staff were friendly and the dining room atmosphere is good. I had monkfish and the crayfish starter both excellent. It's not the cheapest restaurant but you know in the main you get what you pay for and... More

This was a very good find for first time visitors to Southend as well as anyone who lives here. Relaxing dining area, excellent choice of local beers and really good food in generous portions. We had a crayfish and smoked salmon cocktail which was perfect. Mains of fish for him and jerk chicken on sweet potato mash was also really... More

We discovered this little gem while walking around the back streets of Southend. As my partner is Gluten free the staff were happy to oblige and advised on a great starter and ensured the Sunday roast ticked all the boxes. I'll highly recommend the beef and what a plateful you get. If in the area again we'll be returning.
