Came across this restaurant by accident as Tiptree tea rooms were full! Wow, so glad we did, the food was absolutely fantastic, so flavoursome. Generous portions and beautifully cooked. Service was great, really attentive but not intrusive, we will be going back again very soon.

An excellent product starts with the careful selection of the finest fresh ingredients. We source local produce whenever possible, our meats are reared at Essex farms and our fish is delivered fresh daily with much of our fruit and vegetables grown at home in the kitchen garden.
