I have been going here for a number of years before going to Southend games at roots hall. Testimony to its popularity are the queues both for the take away and the restaurant. Go for the rock, or skate knobs . Forgo the salad and you get more chips. You can also have alcohol with the meal with decent beers and bottles of wine but go for a mug of tea and enjoy a traditional Essex experience.

Average fish and chips which is extremely overpriced. Rides on an undeserved good reputation. You're better off on the seafront.

Had a meal here before visiting the Palace Theatre just across the road. Beautifully cooked and presented and was pleasantly surprised to find that the restaurant is licensed as well. Very clean restaurant, friendly and efficient service - exactly what we were looking for.

We came to Southend on sea for the day with my husband, two children, mother in law father in law and brother in law. It was a great day out and we had snacks and sandwiches to keep us going throughout the day. We wanted to try a good fish and chip place for dinner but had no idea which one was good - there are an abundance of them here!! We looked on trip advisor and chose this one. We were not disappointed - lovely fresh chips and cod. Would def come back here and recommend to others.

I have been to this restaurant several times - in fact we now make a special trip there, a 90 mile round trip. The staff are so friendly and helpful, restaurant is very clean and the food is 'simply the best'! For all the times we have been there, the standard never changes, it's always superb.
