Went here on a groupon voucher for the second time and found the food even better than the first visit! Soup was fab and the bubble and squeak a revelation! The home made pie was really tasty too. The staff were all very friendly and the place has a lovely "family run" feel to it. Bonus: if you're lucky enough... More

I came with friends on a saturday for lunch. I had been a couple of times before and as it was sooo good I came back with different friends. Everything about this place is fantastic. I read someone mention how clean the loo's are... I noticed that too. The staff, service and last but not least the food, all make... More

Though a cold wintry day cafe was warm and welcoming,staff were attentive without being pushy.food was fab especially the mash ( or maybe it was bubble and squeak). Was so great I could have eaten a plateful..will definitely revisit.

The bubble and sqeak side dishes were amazing. Washed down with a very reasonably priced Merlot, the whole meal was exceptionally good. Staff... More

Went here on a groupon deal, have to say what a lovely meal. Pork terrine was good, the lamb and rosemary pie lovely and syrup sponge good too. Southend is improving with its food choices, not everyone wants greasy stuff all the time. The only negative with this place is I dont think it advertises itself from the outside for... More

Ok, here goes:- Very friendly team of waiting staff Food was excellent Outside seating Great views Now, for me, apart from the very tasty food, the real show-stealer is the cloakroom, is the best restaurant toilet I have ever seen! It is so clean, tidy , basically perfection personified! For some, I know the toilet is probably not at the... More
