Enjoyed a relaxing meal, excellent food and attention. It was lovely letting the restaurant choose the food we ate. Wine pairing made the meal complete. Thank you for a lovely evening.
Second time at Food by John Lawson, and it didn’t disappoint. Excellent food, with chefs explaining ingredients, exemplary service and a laid back atmosphere. My 10 year old son loved it and wants to go back.
We received a gift voucher for this restaurant for Christmas and finally got around to booking a table. I was very sceptical but was left very pleasantly surprised.
The service was fantastic, but not over bearing.
The ambiance was soft, gentle and calming. The food was delicious, I don’t drink and the non alcoholic selection was very good and not an after thought, but my partner said the wine was fantastic.
I’ve already rebooked for my partners Birthday.
I could not recommend this place enough. If you get the opportunity please try it, I very much doubt you will be disappointed.
Fantastic food, highly recommended for foodies and/or people with dietry requirements.
Magical - it was everything I hoped it would be. The food was beautifully presented. The taste was sublime. I wish I could have just a little bit of his talent to make healthy food taste divine. The waitresses were very knowledgeable. So impressed, cant wait to return.
Wonderful flavours in the food and the wine matches were delicious. Very cosy ambience. Can’t wait to go back.
3rd time dining at the restaurant and every time we have the most amazing experience. Cannot wait to go again, I can't recommend this place enough, its my firm favourite and cannot find a single fault.
fabulous staff, beautifully presented and delicious food, and overall great ambience
will definitely be back.
I enjoyed the food, however my boyfriend is pescatarian so did not eat the meat courses (and had vegetarian instead, which was just cauliflower) and he got charged the same price as meat courses which is ridiculous. Also, vegetarian and vegan only £5 cheaper, which is insane. There is no way 2 cauliflower florets costs the same price as pork belly and pork shoulder.
I think the food is very overpriced for the tiny portions (esp. vegetarian/vegan) so I wouldn't recommend.
Fabulous night of delicious locally sourced seasonal organic food with a twist and perfectly crafted exciting cocktails to match all four courses. Brilliant new tastes and would highly recommend this venue for innovation!
This is the third time we’ve come to Food, this time for the Easter Sunday lunch.
The food was delicious as always, but maybe lacked a little of the extra special magic that we’ve had the previous two times. This could well be down to it being a Sunday lunch, so a little more down to Earth compared to the usual fare.
The service as well was great but just seemed to not quite have the same slickness and speed of our previous visits, certainly not enough to put us off from visiting again though!
Another fantastic evening at John Lawson. A truly unique experience. The food was delicious and the service personal and attentive. Will go back again!
I'm not really one for leaving reviews, in fact, this might well be my first ever, but I had such a fantastic experience that I felt compelled to comment. I can't recommend it enough, we'll definitely return to see what they serve up in the coming months.
What a fabulous place - great food, good service and a relaxed environment.
Well done, John Lawson!
Loved everything. Very good service. Will be back for special occasion.
Delicious, healthy, seasonal food. Vegan options equally good.
We had a amazing meal .
This place is a gem. As a foodie I was blown away. This is the standard of restaurant I have been searching for!!! Attention to detail in decor, toilets, music selection.
Then the food....sublime
And the tastes blow your mind.
As a vegan ......
Very happy as I normally travel to The Wild Food Cafe Neals yard .
But now there is a local 5* restaurant that will explode my taste pallet and search for something exquisite.
Highly recommend this.
Vegan wine on offer also!
Fantastic beautiful inspiring.

Amazing taster menu with a perfect wine pairing. Great value for money. Came out of there filling full and like I’d had a treat, but felt healthy at the same time! If John Lawson cooked for me every day I would be happy to stop eating gluten, dairy and refined sugar!
Excellent food, wine and service. Will definitely be back!
Fabulous local food paired with great wines. The sevice was outstanding. Would definitely go back. Expensive but worth it.
Great food and service. Loved it was all locally produced.
Me and my husband enjoyed the experience of a surprise menu. We enjoyed all the courses. We were contacted by the restaurant prior to our visit for any food allergies and they double checked this on the night. We loved the cosy atmosphere and the attention from the staff.
A fresh, truly delicious menu accompanied by superbly paired wines. The lobster was absolutely sublime. We will be back.
A great dining experience and well worth a visit to Leigh on Sea
Fabulous food, the best food I have tasted. Loved it and want to go again
Great, evening at a new local restaurant, only negative; it was a Wednesday and only two other tables occupied so sadly rather quiet !
