Once again the dining experience was first class. My wife and I were celebrating our golden wedding anniversary with eight friends. All had an excellent meal and enjoyed the experience.

Wasn't too keen on the salmon starter as cucumber ribbons were overly pickled & unfortunately overpowered the salmon. Although the pate & Cajun prawns were very tasty. As for the roasts they were all delish & the roast beef was the best I've had in a restaurant. Fantastic meal in lovely surroundings with great service. Thanks x

Made to feel very welcome by Dasha and others. A wonderful environment for a very happy meal ( I hope we weren't too noisy). Thanks for a lovely luncheon. We'll be back. Bob

If you ever find yourself out this far in Essex then the Only place to stay is The Oyster Smack Inn. I was caught in traffic due to an accident and had to call ahead to change our lunch time. Staff were extremely accommodating. I stayed in one of the superior rooms at the back, very spacious indeed. Big comfy bed with 4 nice firm pillows. Lots of eateries in the town if you want to have a wander out and very quiet at night so had a great sleep. A continental breakfast is included in the price of the room but I would highly recommend having the cooked as it is definitely one of the best breakfasts I’ve had in a long time and I stay in many hotels for my job. I had a lovely hours walk along the river the next morning, so quiet and peaceful. I will definitely stay at The Oyster Stack again when I am in the area. 4* accommodation with 5* Cuatomer Service. Thanks to all the staff.

As regular diner at The Oyster Smack I enjoyed the usual friendly, efficient service and really tasty food. On this particular occasion the restaurant was very busy and we sat close to someone with an incredibly loud voice which imposed his inane conversation on the rest of the diners. However, it will not deter me from using the Oyster Smack although I may choose a quieter time for my next visit!
