We called in for morning coffee. Made our order at the bar. After a long wait of about 20 minutes for an espresso and Americano waitress wondered around with our order even going outside, but had been given the table number. American coffee was slopped in saucer and made shortbread biscuit soggy. The waiting staff seemed very disorganised and lacked... More

Don't expect to get served quickly even if they are not busy. I've been in many times but never been approached at my table. I have had to go to the counter and order or call them over. They seem to do a lot of talking behind the bar. Bit of advice. Go check on your customers, ask them how... More

The Oak House looked lovely from the outside and seemed very inviting. We chose to go here as somewhere different to the normal chain resturants. Gosh what an awful experience. We walked in and there were some people in there having a coffee and another family at another table. There was a waiter right near us as we entered. He... More

As a returning Maldonian the Oak House was new to me. Excellent spread of cakes and scones, A good cream tea needs really ample portions and we were certainly not disappointed. Staff were friendly and smartly dressed. Somewhat surprised the only real ale on offer was 2 point something!!!

A regular at this wonderful coffee shop. After a fortnight away welcomed back and enjoyed a lovely coffee and piece of delicious cake. Always greeted with a smile. Our favourite.

A group of four ladies came here on a Saturday late afternoon and ended up staying until 11.30pm. All of the staff are very friendly. We didn't bring one drink to our table that was all done for us by the lovely bar staff. We came here for the cocktails and wasn't disappointed. They are very nice and reasonably priced,... More

Just had breakfast in The Oakhouse and it was one of the best ever! It's huge, I had veggie breakfast for £6.50, which was properly scrambled eggs(done in a pan, NOT a microwave, that is soooo rare) 3 large mushrooms, 3 whole roasted tomatoes, a bowl of baked beans, two thick slices of fresh toast with real butter and tea....

Dropped in for a quick coffee while visiting Maldon. They bill themselves as coffee specialists and the coffee was really good and the tastiest I have had in some time! Amazing biscuit served with the coffee as well. Staff and service fine and the really enjoyed the old timber building.
