“rude”
Reviewed 14 May 2013

kitchen staff very rude, ordered full english with toast, they gave me fried bread instead which is totally forgivable. What was unforgivable was when i returned it the woman in the kitchen produced the order slip and abruptly told me she only cooks what is written down and i would have to wait! When waitress eventually bought the toast she threw it on my table without a word. I did nothing wrong but was made to feel as though i had. Not the cleanest place in town either.

“Lovely cafe”
Reviewed 22 March 2013 via mobile

The cafe is in Southchurch Park. Food is traditional cafe simple food. We went on St Patricks day & they did a special menu. I had a steak casserole, cabbage and mash. Husband had ham, egg & chips. It's very good value. Popular with families so can be busy/noisy at times depending on the season. Nice to sit outside during the summer overlooking the park grounds one side and watching the Model Boating club the other side.

“Unhygienic!”
Reviewed 28 August 2012

We went into the Southchurch cafe which is located in the park and it seemed really cute with all of the flowers beside it but inside, it was unhygienic and disgusting. One half of the outside was lovely and the other part was smelly and disgusting and there was litter all over the floor and it made me feel sick! We will not be attending it again!
