Short break holiday

We had two lovey hot chocolates and two cakes, both were of above average size and tasted great. The service was superb and helpful in a great setting with open fires.

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.

Dengie 100 & Maldon Beekeepers' Association have used the Oakhouse bar and cafe, Maldon for their last two beekeeping courses. November 2014 and March 2015. We have just re-booked for April 2015. The service received has been excellent. The room was prepared before arrival and delegates enjoyed good service at the bar when ordering teas and coffees as well as... More

Having used the Oakhouse regularly and always had a good time, we were left frustrated by very poor service on this occasion. Coffees took 20 mins. to arrive despite various prompts and then food a further 10 mins. and cold. The place was not packed, apologies were given but this level of service is unacceptable. Come on Oakhouse get your... More

I have nothing good to say about this place which we visited for Saturday lunch. The service was slow, unhelpful and even got our order wrong. The Food was well below average, poorly presented, reheated and served in meagre portions. I'd been led to believe this was a good place to eat so maybe we visited at a bad time... More

Upon arrival it was plain to see the restaurant was very busy, despite this we where greeted and seated by a member of staff at the door. We ordered two flat white coffees which came very swiftly and with a nice little pattern on each. A food order was then taken, both dishes from the specials menu situated on our... More
