We visited the Magic Mushroom for lunch as it was a place we had meant to visit for some time after reading some good reviews in the local press and from friends. We found it very easy to find something we liked from the set menu which was reasonably priced. We also had wine and managed to keep the top... More

You cannot fault the food and the service. The only thing letting this restaurant down is the restaurant itself. It feels like your eating in a cold village hall rather than a vibrant restaurant. We went on a Thursday and it was full but quiet and you felt like if spoke more than a whisper the table over the other... More

We were a multi generation party in a private function room, and 3 car loads arrived an hour late because of a traffic jam. Our welcome was calming and the staff did not rush us in any way in spite of the late start.The food was superb with such an excellent menu that I think I would have been happy... More

Magic mushroom is bar far the best restaurant in Billericay. I chose to celebrate my birthday there and was not disappointed by the food. Excellent quality, great service and not rushed. Always reserve meals here to celebrate special occasions.

Four of us had booked for a family meal and each had very different experiences regarding the food. Generally the starters were good if not startling but when it came to the mains there was considerable variance. My rump of lamb was both tender and flavoursome - one of the best I have ever had. However, my wife said her... More

Lovely restaurant. I thought the staff were very friendly and helpful. The food was lovely as was the ambience. I went here for a meal with my husband and I think the only negative comment I have is that we were place just outside the kitchen, so staff were frequently coming in and out which was a little distracting. If... More

Have been to this restaurant many times and it was always one of our favourites but after two disappointing visits, will be giving it a miss for a while, at least on a Saturday evening. The food is always good but be prepared for a very long wait for it if going on a Saturday evening. On the last two... More

It's been a long time since I visited this resturant and I was pleasently surprised....As soon as we sat down the lovely waitress bought over a fresh bread board which was accompanied with a delicous peppercorn sauce to dip in, something I'd never had with bread before. For main I had the belly of pork and I can honestly say... More

We had a family meal midweek at the Magic Mushroom. This is my first visit and we were all very impressed with the quality and presentation of the meals. The venue was wonderful with excellent and professional waitresses. I would definitely return again
