If you visit Leigh, you need to come and get cockles. Its what it’s known for, and Osborne Brothers have been here for an age. Nice staff, good selection of fish and reasonably priced.

Great selection of fresh seafood plus other drinks and snacks. Love sitting outside with a pint from the crooked billet and some crayfish tails. Traditional Essex tradition!

Visited Osbourne Brothers several times, friendly faces, sea fresh seafood including Leigh cockles, prawns, mussels,whelks, jellied eels and much more. You can sit outside in 2 seating areas or in the small indoor area. Everyone who visits Old Leigh should stop here.

The queues are long for a reason, but the friendly staff are so well organised that you don’t have to wait too long. The choice is huge and the seafood is all so fresh it tastes amazing. Prices are great too. Highly recommended.
