I have been here for dinner twice, and it really is amazing. The only venue in Essex that I can think of where you can enjoy every part of the evening - getting dressed up, friendly and attentive staff in an amazing atmosphere, brilliant food and drinks followed by the cocktail bar upstairs with live music. From the minute we... More

Lovely bar upstairs to enjoy a drink before and after your meal. The service is very fast and the food is lovely particularly if you love meat.

The best part about this place is their venue, beautiful and very good customer service, I didn't like the seats near the open grill/kitchen but were seated as you come in near the fire, very nice. The food based on turkish style is food is only really average, but nothing to complain about food wise. They portions are quite big... More

We had a business client dinner and this was the place to go! Recommend by a colleague and glad I listened. Parking is tight but an attendant sees to any issues and parks your car for you. Great welcome at the door and invited to the bar upstairs whilst table was prepared. Great selection of drinks including cocktails. Dinner was... More

Cannot rate their mixed grill high enough, along with a bottle of prosecco... Perfect! Have been 3 times before and I'll be visiting again soon!

I came here for my boyfriends 21st Birthday, having told the restaurant that this was the case they had ensured me that they would make his night special and bring him out a candle etc.. having arrived at the venue we were advised to go upstairs to the bar, the bartenders were more interested in having a conversation with themselves...

The tenderest lamb I've ever tasted! Have nothing negative to say only positive. Highly recommended! May be a bit pricey for some but more than worth the money.
