Service was very slow last night but there was apparently a problem in the kitchen which they did apologize about and gave us some olives to nibble on between courses. Absolutely delicious meal when it did reach the table.

The service is exceptional. The lunch menu was interesting in a good way but while we enjoyed it we did not think the end result was as good as our last visit.

Incredibly welcoming, nothing was too much trouble, food excellent and certainly value for money. The Oyster Smack helped make a special family day even more pleasurable. Would certainly recommend and will return ourselves.

First time at Oyster Smack, really enjoyed it and would go back, my mum who is a very fussy eater ate everything and praised the food if she was writing this review she would give a ten I have been on lots of holidays with her and its quite rare for her to praise a meal. Well done Oyster Smack!!

Keep up the good work, we have been looking for a great Sunday Lunch venue with food to match. Now we have found it and its pretty close to the Chelmsford area too. Would suggest that you consider marketing your selves a bit further out!

We stayed in a family room for two nights visiting friends in the area. The room was lovely but the continental breakfast was pretty basic for the price. A large group of us (9 adults and 7 kids) also ate dinner there one night and the food was a bit disappointing, again for the cost. All the mains were over cooked and rather dry, and the dishes in general were lacking in kick or flavour to make them standout. The staff were helpful and friendly and our stay pleasant enough but pitching at that market price, overall I’d say the place needs to step it up a bit.
