Outstanding food, service and atmosphere. There really isn't that many restaurants that serve this high quality food. Decided to try here after seeing a feature on Saturday Kitchen and then reading such fantastic reviews. They are certainly deserved. The restaurant itself is beautifully designed giving a lovely relaxed atmosphere. Will certainly recommend and be back very soon. Thoroughly enjoyed the... More

Best restaurant in Billericay and most of Essex, expensive a la carte (but completely worth the money). There was 8 of us, we had the mid-week fixed menu and there was so much choice and we all had a delicious 3 course meal. Best lamb I have ever had, I hope to return soon. Had a lovely birthday and family... More

A great lunch time menu with plenty of choice. Tasty bread to start with and then 3 excellent courses. The food was delicious and well presented. The staff were friendly and efficient, the restaurant is well laid out and the atmosphere was very relaxing. We will be returning soon!

Another smashing b/day dinner in our favourite local restaurant. The lamb was perfectly cooked and the tian starter was divine. This place is packed out every night - and a good job we booked as it was heaving last night. Consistently good food, wine, service & ambiance.

Came for an early xmas dinner. Was looking forward to our 1st visit to the magic mushroom, but left a little underwhelmed.
