Absolutely loved our evening at the Tilbury - the food was delicious and beautifully presented, it was underpriced in my opinion! Staff were great and they have a well-rounded wine list to cater for all tastes. We will be back!
Fabulous food and good service. A little slow perhaps for the starters but otherwise great.
Loved my sweetbreads starter and I’m secretly delighted that my friends were not as impressed with the floating island dessert as they might have been ;-)
A very warm and welcoming pub with friendly local vibes, high quality food and a decent drinks menu. A very enjoyable stop off during our weekend country walk. Thank you
Excellent gastro-pub, serving very good food in a lovely building. Have visited on a number of occasions but not for a Sunday lunch for many years.
Overall it was another good experience despite a few niggles (Sunday lunch set menu prices shown on OpenTable were not available, asked to vacate our table for another booking despite relatively slow serving of food etc).
Concise menu offering both Sunday roasts and items from regular menu, similarly concise but good wine menu with a variety of styles and prices. Helpful and enthusiastic service.
Wonderful food, outstanding service, nothing was too much trouble. Really good with the kids and the dessert they brought out because it was my Mum’s birthday was a lovely little touch that we weren’t expecting. I recommend it as somewhere to go to all my friends and will definitely be back (maybe without the kids so I can work my way through the gin menu!)
Always consistently good. I love the vegetarian option - makes such a nice change from the typical veggie options on most menus!
Friendly and welcoming service. Food seemed to be a little disjointed ate the Salmon & Guinea Fowl did not understand why the slider on both plates seemed unnecessary. Less is more. However the floating Island was delicious.
Lovely place, friendly and helpful staff, fantastic food and great wine list. Definitely return and recommend to friends. Tables not too close for couples.
I really enjoyed my meal (pork dish) and it was good value overall. I’m gluten free and there wasn’t a huge range on the menu but it is quality food and worth a visit.
A lovely menu , I’m gluten free and our waitress was very helpful with what I could/couldn’t eat , thank you.
Love the Tilbury. Menu always has some interesting twists, service is great, staff are very knowledgeable about the dishes and have a great balance between attentiveness and leaving you to enjoy your evening.
Very impressed with the food and service but the best feature is the fantastic wine list!
Very enjoyable Sunday lunch. Staff friendly and efficient and food delicious. Will definitely go again.
Service/ food v good only slight negative was a bit slow but then it was Sunday - oh no, that's silver service right?
This venue seems to get better with every visit. Whilst the staff are young they are extremely knowledgeable
Lovely evening, delicious food and super service, as ever.
Lovely welcoming staff, intriguing menu with lots of tempting taste combinations , delicious food, wowing puddings and a nice vibe - great evening thank you
At last a chance to try different and very good food and wine. Oh and the staff are lovely so what's not to like?
No taster menu that day even though it said this on web site, both starter and mains I chose had "run out" sent cold food back, small portions served on huge plates ,can't see how they justify £50 for normal red wine ,£29 for a main when veggies etc are extra, perhaps they Excell when taster menu on, young waiting staff lacked expertise for a restaurant charging these prices
Had a lovely Sunday roast last weekend, If you are in the area it’s worth a visit.
Again, a Sunday roast which we love. Enough gravy and veg cooked to perfection. Starters are above average for a Sunday roast provider with some great ideas. Only “beef” with Sunday’s meal was our seating location in one of the smaller rooms but it is our preference to be sat in the larger dining areas and the location does not change the fact that it’s great food and service here.
Ttwo of my guests are pescatarian and it looked as if we might have a little difficulty with the menu, but chef conjured up a simple dish for them based around the Salmon fillet (very nice) and some simple salad/greens. I had the Lamb belly, lamb & goats cheese crispy meatball (Lambs belly was pleasant but minimal) but the dish was pretty nice and the final member of our party had the Tilbury house special burger - actually it looked ok'ish but he didn't enjoy it. A note that for starters just two of us had Confit bass, prawn fritters, prawn cocktail mayo, burnt gem which was ok but I think too fussy and not worth the effort. Finally for dessert I had the Rhubarb set cream, shortbread - which was delicious! A point to not that our waitress was superb... actually one of the best I have every had. She was friendly and fun as the entire team seemed to be. So overall a mixed reaction but my two of us would definitely return!!
The Tilbury didn’t disappoint.
Booked this through OpenTable and in the notes asked for tasting menu. When we got to the restaurant, this had not been communicated but the staff went out of their way to sort out this snag. Food was fantastic as always and the staff were excellent. I would recommend this venue and tasting menu with accompanying drinks to everyone.
Have had several tasting menus in restaurants in London and The Tilbury matches exceeds all competition without completely breaking the bank. Fabulous night. Can’t wait to book the next one
It would be good to see the choice of a set menu - a la carte can work out expensive.
Remind your staff how to serve a pint i.e. not with a large froth which was returned for a full measure!
Gets better every time
Excellent food as always, very efficient and courteous staff. Always a pleasure to go to The Tilbury!
Four of us dined at The Tilbury on a Saturday evening. Everyone enjoyed their starters and 3 out 4 enjoyed their mains, unfortunately the battered fish was heavily battered and the skin was left on; which left a small amount of fish to consume. Again the desserts were very good. Staff were pleasant and helpful.
Excellent as always
Had a great Saturday lunch with the family
Perfect as always. Food, atmosphere and service fantastic. Always pick up new ideas for recipes when I come here.
My two daughters and I went for an early dinner on a Thursday. The restaurant was fairly busy giving off a pleasant and relaxed vibe. Two of us had the set menu and my youngest chose from the A la Carte. The food was very tasty and the service was excellent. The only small downside was when the garden door was opened for people to go outside to smoke. It was briefly cold and the door was a little noisy. If it had been a romantic evening I would have asked to move tables.
A lovely evening spent at the restaurant for a joint birthday celebration. Service was attentive whilst not intrusive and the food was superb. Well worth a visit!
Visited for a midweek lunch. Very nice, relaxed interior to this gastric pub, with a pleasant (if quiet) ambience. Simple menu with well prepared and presented good, set menu also available. Service very good. Good selection of drinks. It’s a little remote but has plenty of parking and is worth a short drive to get there.
Very good food in a lovely environment. The staff are very friendly and knowledgeable.
Always pleasurable, delicious food & excellent wine
Sunday lunch, but we went off piste with their alternative menus. Great decision! Cod and bass croquettes with chorizo crisps and wild garlic mayo were delicious. Can’t remember what my husband had but his main of prawn and soft shell crab burger was different but very tasty. I had the cod rarebit, and this too was superb. Food is always great and love having an option on a Sunday - when the weather warms, don’t always fancy stodgy roasts. We will be back. Again. And again...
Very easy parking, everything was simple - gin menu was superb. Highly recommend for a lunch catchup
Although I have been to lunch here several times this was my first evening visit. We were left waiting a while before some one asked us if we would like a drink. Complementary starter was lovely. Then we shared the confit grey mullet prawn fritters prawn cocktail mayo and burnt gem.
For mains I had the herb and nut crusted halibut smoked mash with wild garlic sauce. And my husband had the Tilbury bacon cheese burger fries coleslaw pickles and fries.
All delicious but the fries were cold .
My meringue desert was also very nice.
Yes we would go again. Lovely evening.
