Fabulous roast dinners, all 6 of us enjoyed all of our food
Perfect evening for aperitif's in the garden followed by a meal that worked in every way possible. Throw in a terrific wine recommendation from Ashmira plus the usual high level of service from the team then, what more do you want? Taxi! 11/10 as Mr Marshall once said.
We were surprised how popular The Tilbury is on a Wednesday lunch time. That said, it did not make for a noisy lunch or effect the service, which was impeccable from start to finish. Laura and Louise who looked after us were appropriately friendly; both were knowledgeable about the food and wine menu.
Each dish was perfectly prepared, excellently presented and, importantly, flavoursome.
All in all an excellent lunch, with great services and superb value.
Thank you The Tilbury team, we will be back!
Really nice venue and food was lovely as well, very posh pub nosh
Excellent food! Very happy with service and will definately return. The only negative point was that the noise level was so loud at times we found it hard to converse. The restaurant was not full so it would be even more difficult in this case if it were. Saying that-we really enjoyed the meal and will return.
Another great visit to this cute pub.
Food is very nice and service always excellent.
Outstanding as always. Great menu with new and interesting choices. Delicious food. Excellent service. We love it here.
Lovely food and service, we will definitely be going back.
Very Very Nice
Service Excellent. Wine first rate. Vegetarian starter was very nice indeed
pork ribeye original and with slaw and pigs ears excellent
As you probably reallise, I recommend The Tilbury frequently! Thank you for being there.
Poor, was not offered a drink once during the whole mean. Made a complaint since with no reply.
Imaginative and well executed
Food was great
Service was spot on
Very friendly and helpful staff
Overall a great lunch
Been here many times and it never disappoints. Great menu choice and friendly people. Sadly, we don't get there as often as we'd like.
The food here is exceptional. Lots of choice and everything on the menu sounds delicious, without exception everyone in our party thoroughly enjoyed their meal. My fish main with roast chicken sauce was delicious and the Eton mess was standout. Even the ice cream flavours were amazing. The decor, though traditional and cosy, could do with a bit of freshening up and some pops of colour - some flowers or some luxe cushions? We will definitely be back though!
Delicious food. Wine recommendation made by staff was very good. Will return in the future to try another weird but yummy combo - white chocolate and peppercorn hummus
Spring roll hot in the middle cold outside, microwave heated? Soft crab too crisp.
Crayfish could have been better presented, to make them easier to open. Bread not offered had to ask for it.
Always a pleasure. Staff very friendly and food excellent.
Very good service and our food was served within 15 minutes. All our dishes were nicely presented and tasty. However the main course at £21.50 is a little overpriced.
The food was excellent, with just one disappointment: the roasted potatoes were hard and tasteless.
The wines were good and good value.
However The room was very noisy.
I brought my parents and partner to The Tilbury for my parents’ 45th wedding anniversary. The staff were professional, polite and respectful. They were clearly knowledgeable and didn’t feel the need to check on us too often. The food was simply amazing. It couldn’t have been better.
The food is delicious. The snug is fabulous room. Service is extremely friendly but can be slow at times.
Love it here
The food was so good, great selection
I took my wife for her birthday lunch after reading reviews.
We were not disappointed. The food was excellent and the staff capped off a lovely day. So friendly and diligent.
I would recommend the Tilbury if you want very good well presented food and great staff .
always a favourite destination, great pub excellent food, my only concern is the portions are frankly on the small side, which is a slight concern when you are paying top gastropub prices you want very good food and enough of it, on the starter and main I felt a little under served - not a big issue but a concern if your very hungry.
Very enjoyable. Nice food friendly staff
Lovely food and good service
Really lovely meal. Good value especially considering the quality and standard of cooking. Great, understated service and lovely surroundings.
Three satisfied diners - all that is needed!
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!
It was a please by experience, highly recommend 👍🏻
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.
The Tilbury is rated 4.3 stars by 1233 OpenTable diners.
