Superb meal. Only down side due to where we were sat was the door to the garden being in constant use by patrons so our meal was disturbed on numerous occasions and the door was left open a lot which interfered with he effectiveness of the air conditioning. More

Very quiet on a Monday evening but we were looked after very well by our Waiter Mustaffa. The food was delicious, particularly the starters! We will definitely return. I am looking forward to trying more dishes from this lovely menu! More

Farm-to-table | Southend-On-Sea, Southend-On-Sea

Absolutely LOVE this place...without a doubt the best restaurant outside of London that we’ve ever come across if you want actual flavour from a chef who knows what he’s doing and not adding sugar and all sorts of other cheap additives. You definitely get what you pay for here and it’s well worth it 👌 not for people who prefer food of the beige variety! More
