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.

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

On arrival we found a very comfortable sofa seat at a table near the service area & after waiting for quite a while I had to call the young waitress over for service. At this stage there was only one member of staff behind the service area which increased to two on our departure some time later. There was also... More

A nice café for an informal lunch. Friendly, helpful staff. Nice interior. Buzzy atmosphere downstairs but as it was full we were seated upstairs........slightly less atmosphere but not a problem. We ordered a steak which came with fries, salad and Bernaise sauce. The sauce was very good but sadly the steak was served on a trendy piece of cold slate... More
