Beautiful setting and great service, but the food was a little disappointing unfortunately.

The food was not great at all no flavour to the beef hard roast potatoes and some overdone vegetables and some not so done hard vegetables and horrible watery, greasy gravy I will say the Yorkshire puddings were very good I think these were the only thing cooked fresh. The starters were great and enjoyed very much such a disappointing main course the waiter never asked how the meals were or when collecting still quite full plates (no point eating) think it was obviously it was not enjoyed. We just wanted to go so you didn't ask and we didn't say will not be returning though unfortunately and will not recomend. This is unfortunate and disappointing.

Splendid home-cooked food and enthusiastic, helpful staff made it one of the most pleasurable dining experiences we've had for ages. No real frills, but all the better for that.

The buffet included a good selection of bites. The mini fish and chips was gorgeous. The separate room was appreciated by my family and bearing in mind the range in ages - 18 to 85 - everyone enjoyed the experience.

Enjoyed an excellent lunch as always. Food was incredibly good and service was second to none. Have booked to go back again for a special birthday lunch with all the family. It makes a pleasant change to actually receive good food at reasonable prices with excellent service.

We enjoyed another fabulous meal at the Oyster Smack on Saturday evening. The food was delicious particularly the Tillingham asparagus ans Skagen prawns, but the star of the evening was the grilled skate wing with caper butter which was absolutely wonderful. The service was attentive, efficient and very professional and we left feeling extremely happy. Have already recommended the Oyster Smack to my neighbour. Please give this gem of a restaurant a try.

We chose from the set lunch menu and all four were very pleased with our choices. I had the grilled sardines starter, excellent. Various tastes catered for, attractive presentation and reasonably priced. Limited Parking is available at the rear of the restaurant, might be an issue if busy. Overall, well worth a return visit when visiting Burnham again.

We had a good visit again and had Chicken Supreme. This time however, the Vegetables could have been done a bit longer......I appreciate some people like them that way, but the Carrots were quite hard.

Thank you for a brilliant evening celebrating my 60th Birthday. There were 12 of us, staff were brilliant both leading up to the meal with the planning and during the evening. Very attentive, nothing was too much trouble, food was hot and tasty.
