Oak House revisited

I have been back to the Oak House and can say it has much improved since my last review. Staff very pleasant and food very good on talking to a member of staff I was told there had been a change over of owners. This change coincided with my very disappointing meal, I'm pleased I gave them another... read more

Stopped here yesterday to get some breakfast which is advertised served until 11.30, minutes to order, and was then told we couldn't order breakfast because we were too late, although within time when we joined the queue. We said we'd be queuing for quite a while and was then told that because they had a large table in they had... More

This is far the best place to go if your in Maldon. Either just for a quiet drink or some lovely food. I noticed on trip advisor that a few had put up some bad reviews. I must say I was absolutely gob smacked. Leah ,Elliot the bar managers and ALL of the staff are so friendly and efficient they... More

At late notice we decided to have lunch in town. Maldon does not have a great deal of choice, especially as we wanted a light lunch, sandwich. Went to the Contential Cafe to busy, as we had four adults and two year old. Decided to try the Oak House, easy to get a table as the house was not very... More

Having recently returned from Australia where "going out for breakfast" is very much part of the culture we were looking for breakfast in Maldon but at just before 8.30 am nothing was open! However the Oak House was just opening and although their breakfast service does not officially start until 9.00 am were happy to serve us. Very good breakfast,... More

Fair enough it was a bank holiday Monday lunchtime so that was our first mistake. Have used The Oak House on a couple of occasions and service has never been great but this time it really took the biscuit. The place was packed about 1.30pm-ish and there was 4 of us but we did manage to get a table near... More

After visiting family from Leeds we ate for lunch here. Would recommend upstairs as with children and baby lot more space although we were the only ones! But this was perfect. Food did take rather a long time but can honestly say so worth it. Hot fresh and tasty! Yummy. Staff very accommodating to all our different needs. Presentation and... More

I planned a secret surprise party for my husband with Carrie and not only did it go according to plan but the staff excelled my expectations. We all had a lovely meal and a wonderful time. Should you want to have a good meal with a small party (there were of us) then this is the place to go in... More
