“good old greasy spoon”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 17, 2013

Clean, friendly fast service, best stick to the all day breakfast and burgers type meal, the proper meals are a disappointment. Good value for money

Great value cooked breakfast, even if you are a vegetarian. Get the pot of tea, it's lovely. Fast service, cheap and cheerful.

“Good, honest grub”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 8, 2012

If you want a fantastic all day breakfast, a delicious homecooked meal or just a snack this is the place to go. Its only small (but then so is Frinton!) but it has a great menu with daily specials and the staff are friendly. The place is spotless and has lots of regulars - what better recommendation can you get.
