Tasty coffee

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.

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....

Perfect for families during the day, serving all kinds of coffee and cakes (plus beer if you want it!) with a great lunch menu. Food is good quality and varied. Lovely in the evening as a wine bar and stays open late.

If we are ever in the area again... 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

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 chance.

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
