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

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

This is a funny place that changes throughout the day. We've enjoyed hearty breakfasts in the morning; coffee and cake later in the day; and a bottle of wine or two in the evening. The mixture of roles can make it feel a bit neither one thing or the other. Staff are OK but when you wait to be served... More
