I've lost count of the. Umber of coffee shops and cafes in Maldon and over time have probably visited most. The great thing with The OakHouse is that they take pride in what they serve. Yes, it may be slightly more expensive with a full English priced at £7.50 but you get what you pay for plus it includes a... More

Having had breakfasts here many times before, we thought we would go back and have a lovely full English breakfast. Unfortunately the standards have dropped significantly and now the food is of a poor standard. Sausages, instead of being a proper butcher sausage were a mass produced type and tasted vile. We were very disappointed and mentioned it to the... More

Drinks were expensive compared to other places but they did have choice of wines and they were served nicely. Great buzzing venue

Look forward to greeting you soon. John More

Love this place, the decor is really lovely and the staff are good. It's the late night spot in Maldon and the atmosphere is really friendly. Only down sides are that you can wait a while in a queue for the ladies toilets and the bar is so popular it can get really packed, but a few tables under cover... More

Hello Lindy L, Thank you for the lovely words on your review. Maldon is a small town and you need to get things just right, and that's a fine balance between, staffing, ambience, service and product. We hope we do get these right. I am fully aware of the queue that can build up on busy nights as quite often... More

We went here as a group from university. The setting was nice. It was lunchtime and being a vegetarian the menu had a few basic choices. I opted for a breakfast (which the staff were happy to do as it was past the time they usually served it). I was not prepared to pay £6-7 for a sandwich as I... More

The Oakhouse offers an excellent breakfast menu with enough choice to keep everyone happy. I went for the full English breakfast, and it was great as always. Tasty sausages (from a local butcher I believe) a choice of toast, and the eggs are cooked however you like them. The service is friendly and nothing seems too much trouble for the... More

Hi Jayne1066, Thank you for the review of our venue and especially the 'breakfasts'. You are correct we use our local butcher, Ansells for our all our meat (we went to school together!)
