We visited with 10 friends to celebrate my wife's birthday. Early January is an odd time to eat out, so we had no trouble booking for 10, and the restaurant wasn't full. The service was pleasant and efficient. Foodwise, as well as the usual roast offering, the restaurant also offers a fairly healthy list of alternative main course dishes. Starters... More

Went to this restaurant for our anniversary, very friendly reception and lovely restaurant. Good menu to choose from and a special two courses for £14.95 as well. Unfortunately, some fish unavailable due to the fish delivery not arriving. My order of tempura prawns arrived, good presentation on the plate. Slightly disappointed that instead of tempura batter they had used beer... More

Had lunch here with 3 of us, we were early but welcomed warmly and offered a drink whilst we waited for the other guest. Once seated by a very friendly guy we were handed menus but felt there was no rush to order, when we were ready to order the waiter was there promptly. We had an acceptable wait for... More

3 of us went for lunch here. When we arrived we were greeted by friendly staff who sat us at a lovely table by the window. There wasn't any other customers when we arrived and I wondered if it was going to be a reflection of things to come.... but it wasn't. Eventually the restaurant started to fill up a... More

I have lunched here on several occasions and this is my favourite Essex restaurant. For my personal choice I would always eat at this pub restaurant. The cleanest establishment I have ever eaten in and that includes the crisply dressed staff who are so helpful and friendly. They will ensure you have a wonderful dining experience. Cleanest toilets I have... More
