I have never been moved to write a negative review before but this restaurant truly deserves to be named and shamed for the swill that it serves. The owners of this cafe / restaurant obviously work very hard on tracking down the cheapest possible 'food'...More

A really good place to eat, children's menu available. Menu is varied and food very tasty. How they do so much so quickly is commendable. Very tasty, good to have the choice of eating inside or out.

La Bottega is a very roomy cafe on the Barleylands Craft Village site just on the outskirts of Billericay. It's a little gem - it has a good menu with a good variety of English food/ dishes. But the Italian offerings are really excellent. The...More
