About Food by John Lawson
Our dishes are inspired by the seasons using only the best produce, grown as close to the restaurant door as possible. We are a no menu restaurant, the set four courses we serve can change daily depending on the delivery from our local farmers and fishermen. All food is cooked with health in mind, John only uses ingredients and techniques that are good for your health.
We offer a specially selected menu of organic wines and beverages with the option of having them matched to complement the food
All dietary requirements will be catered for just inform us upon booking.
Please note our kitchen uses nuts and nut milks so there may be traces of nuts.
Due to our small restaurant we do not have facilities for pushchairs or wheelchairs.
We couldn’t fault John Lawsons, from exceptional food to friendly service. We will be back.
Fantastic Sunday lunch. Every part of the meal and experience was first class. I couldn’t fault it.
Faultless experience, amazing food and highly knowledgeable staff regarding food provenance and ethos , super cool decor creating a relaxed environment all in the heart of Leigh what more could you want
We thoroughly enjoyed our Sunday lunch experience at John Lawson. The food was cooked to perfection and so fresh! Great value for money for free flowing bubbles also!
This was a truly exceptional dining experience. The love, care and attention to every detail was present from the moment my wife and I walked in through the door. We felt as if we’d been welcomed into a friend’s home and the food itself was absolutely magnificent. The freshness of the flavours worked so beautifully together. Not just in each course but across the whole meal. To find somewhere so special so close to our home is amazing and we can’t wait to visit again soon - hopefully for the Sunday lunch with our whole family. Thanks so much to John and his amazing team for bringing such an amazing experience to Leigh on Sea.
Faboulous food, wonderful atmosphere, great informed service, world class chef,
It's always a delight to eat at Food by John Lawson. You'll never eat the same dish twice - unless you return too soon that is. Always delicious, often surprising. Staff are well informed and attentive. We love coming here.
Simply the best excellent food excellent service.
Have eaten at Food several times and it never disappoints. A real treat and for me the best dining experience in town.
Very tasty Sunday roast!
First time, won't be the last. Great food, chilled atmosphere. Glad we found you 😊😊
This is the third time we've been for a vegan night and the food was amazing. As always.
Myself and Danny always enjoy the atmosphere sfaff and of course the food. It's wonderful to have such a great restaurant 10 minutes away. Look forward to next time. thank you. John Lawson
We were a little unsure about the ‘no menu’ idea. We needn’t have worried, everything about the whole meal was perfect.
Food is a unique experience. John Lawson will cook seasonal food and ,with no need to choose, you find yourself eating dishes that you would not normally- which are invariably delicious. The service led by Jo is fantastic making you feel very special.
lovely warm welcome from all staff, amazing food .
Fantastic evening with amazing food and service
