Midsummer House

Market, Cambridge
17/03/2017: Exquisite food. Fabulous service. Personal touch. Words cannot describe how amazing the experience is. You must try it for yourself.
17/03/2017: The evening tasting menu blew our minds, with flavours, textures and visual delights. All staff were friendly and attentive - particular mention for Maitre d' Marc, and our charming someliere. We were taken on a world tour with a different wine for each course, perfectly matched to the food. The best attention since we had the menu gastronimique at the Grand Monarch in Chartres on our honeymoon forty five years ago.


black apollo

Holt, North Norfolk
16/03/2017: A lovely environment, brilliant coffee, friendly service - a great coffee experience all round, wholly recommended.
13/03/2017: Lovely little coffee shop which serves the best coffee I have had in a UK coffee shop. You may have to pay a few pence more, but when the quality is that good it doesn't matter


The Shed

St Andrews, Great Yarmouth
19/03/2017: If you want to go to this restaurant, you have to book well in advance as it only seats 16. It is, as the name suggests, in a shed but with pretty decor and amazing food. We had fantastic garlic prawns to start followed by sea bass and skate. All excellent. They do also do steaks and burgers but we went specifically for the fish and were not disappointed. If you're near Gorleston, do try this unique restaurant.
19/03/2017: My own shed is even better looking than this one, but as soon as you enter the atmosphere and quality of the service is memorable, and then you are just amazed by the menu and the choice of dishes. We were there as 2 couples and we picked 4 different starters ( monkfish, scallops, muscles and spare ribs ) to share as "tapas" . We then all chose fish as our main course. The number of different fresh fishes available was quite amazing. No doubt whatsoever that this is the no 1 restaurant in Gorleston


Pamela's Restaurant

Nelson, Great Yarmouth, 30-45£
18/03/2017: Firstly Cocktails, it took 10 minutes for us to be served 3 cocktails and one bottle beer , one at a time, very frustrating. Staff not attentive, in fact heads down so as to not give eye contact. Husband had to go up to bar to re-order beer. Secondly...Amuse Bouche... Black pudding and potato, would have been delicious hot, cold ugh. Up to restaurant...service excellent!!! Starter...Fill Prawn basket, much to largeMain...Tornados Rossini ...if serving a classic, keep it a classic Dessert...why oh why did we need jelly lips and Darth Vader s on plates, same with lipstick jelly ??? So let down the class of restaurant.Lemon meringue pie, no glaze and straight from fridge.Fourth visit in as many years, standards are dropping in some areas which is such a shame.Would we go again, sorry no. Unfortunately when spoke to others who have visited lately, same conclusion ... disappointing
16/03/2017: what a superb restaurant. from the welcome when we arrived to the end of our evening everything was perfect. The staff were lovely, very attentive. the meal was superb. thank you so much for everything. we will certainly be back and of course we have already recommended to others.


Vita Bella

Bicknacre and East and West Hanningfield, Chelmsford, 45-60£
19/03/2017: Went for a nice family midweek meal and thoroughly enjoyed it. When you arrive at the restaurant there is an attendant to help keep the car park organised and give you a warm welcome before you even enter the restaurant. Once inside you are greeted to a warm reception and shown to your table. All staff and friendly and make you feel welcome. We ordered a variety of items including veal, lamb and pasta. The food was very nice, well cooked and tasty. The bolognese served with the veal was delicious. Portion sizes are slightly small but could have just been we was enjoying so much we wanted more of everything! Thoroughly recommend for a special occasion as they really do make you feel welcome.
18/03/2017: We were recommended this restaurant, we were not disappointed in any way. I have been to quite a few Italian restaurants and must say, this is the best I've been to outside of Italy. Great food, great staff, great service. Will be back here again in the future.


Maison Bleue Restaurant

Abbeygate, St Edmundsbury
18/03/2017: I booked a table for 6, for two of my brothers, myself and our wives. we were seated in the window area around a table for 6 with ample room. It is my favorite table but I did not request it. We were warmly greeted by mine host , coats taken and shown to our table.Aperitifs were ordered and the menus handed out, we all took the evening menu as everything on it was to our liking. A house little tapas was served whilst we perused the menu. The wine list would suit every taste and price level, something for everyone.The food although this is known as a superb fish restaurant had a good choice for the carnivores amongst us. One of our party is gluten intolerant, the staff were so helpful and without making a song and dance made sure everything she ordered was too her liking. Fantastic. everybody was complimentary about the food, the service, the atmosphere and general ambience. They all wished they lived nearer us.We done Maison Bleue, you deserve all the accolades you receive.
17/03/2017: We were recommended to eat here by family friends and we were not disappointed. Our welcome was charming and we were soon seated with glasses of chilled champagne while we perused the menu. We were spoilt for choice and were not disappointed with our final selections. Very fine sophisticated cooking from the Chef/owner. Excellent wines by the glass. All in all it was a charming way to celebrate a birthday.


Hayward's Restaurant

Epping Hemnall, Epping Forest
19/03/2017: This was our second visit to the restaurant and we had dinner on a Friday night. The staff are very welcoming and friendly. The detail, quality of food, and cooking is amazing. We had 3 courses along with little taster dishes that come out in between and it was all very delicious. I told the restaurant about my dairy intolerance and they were super accommodating too. The restaurant is expensive but we don't mind treating ourselves for special occasions.
16/03/2017: Just decided to go to this restaurant and booked us a dinner. They called us before our visit to find out if we had any special requirements. I informed them about my partner's vegetarian preference, it was duly noted . The dinner started with some very delicious small starters (I wish there were more), but in retrospect, I wouldnt have had any space for the 3 course dinner. The starter was excellent scallops and the main was delicious monk fish tails. This was followed by a delicious dessert. The vegetarian menu was superb. The chef had put in a lot of effort to make the food and the taste definitely conveyed the fine quality inputs. All in all, we are going there again. Its a very relaxed environment with very friendly and helpful staff. This restaurant can easily be rated among the best.


The Galley

Seckford, Suffolk Coastal
12/03/2017: I decided to book The Galley for a birthday meal after enjoying a lovely evening at the restaurant four years ago. The food was even better than I remembered, and the owner Ugur was just as welcoming. It's obvious how much he cares about the restaurant and he went out of his way to accommodate our needs. My wife has a lactose intolerance, but he was happy to change the sauce that came with her pan-fried chicken breast, and said that the mashed potato could be switched for rice. For dessert, her mascarpone was swapped for raspberry sorbet, and it still paired fantastically with the figs and apricots. All of our food was well-presented, cooked to perfection and full of fantastic flavours. It was also incredibly well-priced, with our bill coming to under £200 for five people, including a £30 bottle of Rioja. The layout of the restaurant makes for a pleasant atmosphere, although we were the only people left at 10pm, which was odd for a Saturday night. However, it certainly wouldn't deter us from another visit. Fantastic food and service at an affordable price. What more could you ask for?
12/03/2017: Ugur and the team do nothing but make you feel welcome and we'll looked after. The food is stunning, the wine is well chosen to complement the dishes, and for three courses the portions are just right. We love coming here and try to make it over from Essex a few times per year, especially for lobster week!


Thai Up At The Quay

Harwich East, Tendring, 30-45£
18/03/2017: My husband and I wanted to try something different. Found this place with really good reviews and it was Thai which we love but don't have often. It's an hr and 20mns from home but it was definitely worth the drive!Very cute cottage style restaurant tucked away just off the quay in Harwich Run but husband and wife duo. Wife is Thai and the chef and the owner was front of house.Front of house was very welcoming and friendly, the service was always with a smile and you just felt at home.The food was something to behold. Stunning, fragrant, incredibly fresh and very authentically Thai. It was simply delicious and we would definitely go back. Chef came out to thank of us travelling such a long way and it was such a sweet gesture. It was lovely meeting the talented chef.We had Tom Yum soup, tempura king prawns, fried squid tubes, Thai green curry and the Penang curry. All super delicious and we were stuffed! Got doggy bags - bonus! We will definitely be going back!
15/03/2017: Love , love , love this place. The staff are amazing, the food is great. Nothing is to much trouble. We had 3 starters, 3 mains , drinks and banana fritters ! All for £84. My husband loves his spicy food, so if that is your thing then try the jungle curry !! We love this place, it's the best Thai food we have had. The staff even take the time to know what you like and recommend other dishes you might like. You definitely need to book, as is very popular.


Morston Hall Restaurant

Glaven Valley, North Norfolk, 60-100£
15/03/2017: Spending a week in north Norfolk so I booked dinner to celebrate my husband's birthday. Our first impression was one of surprise as the drive to the car park was riddled with pots holes! You really need to get that sorted. Guests are advised to arrive at 7.15 for sit down at 8pm. We ate on a Saturday and every table appeared to be occupied. This meant that everyone was eating each course at much the same time but the service was such that this did not result in any delays other than the cheese course because there was only one trolley. The food was excellent. Amazing combinations and flavours so top marks there. My only slightly negative observation was how small the courses were. We have dined at several Michelin restaurants and by comparison these portions came up small. Still with seven courses and then cheese we didn't go hungry. The female sommelier was lovely and the flight of wines were perfect. With coffee my husband was presented with a chocolate cake with 'Happy Birthday' piped on the plate. A lovely touch. As to previous comments about decor; this is a country house hotel with restaurant. We found it perfectly charming and relaxed.
13/03/2017: Have been meant to go for some time but finally booked a night and dinner there for my wife and I, fabulous room and position and what turned out to be a great meal, would have preferred a slightly slower pace, another five minutes between course would have been great. Breakfast was slower but excellent and definitely will return. A Michelin in East Anglia something to treasure


The Green Man

Whittlesford, South Cambridgeshire, 20-30£
15/05/2017: Food is lovely but very pricey went there with my hubby during our outing adventure
20/03/2017: A friendly community pub with a good selection of beers


Ristorante Il Piccolo Mondo

Bottisham, East Cambridgeshire
19/03/2017: You have to book well in advance, but it being our 47th wedding anniversary my wife thought ahead and did so! A lovely lunch: Bresaolo, then she had their signature dish of spaghetti with lobster which was delicious. It's a great location, very nice service, and a happy place for an anniversary. Hoping to go again the next time we have an occasion to celebrate.
14/03/2017: What a fabulous restaurant. I can't say more than fabulous food, fabulous atmosphere, fabulous staff. I LIKED IT !!!!!!!!!!!!!


Olio Restaurant

Moulsham and Central, Chelmsford
18/03/2017: Visited this restaurant last night. To be honest the booking was only made about 5 hours before we sat down.From the outside this restaurant belies what is inside. Deceptively spacious inside. Very warm welcome from the staff. Was shown to our table downstairs and had a tableNot once did we feel rushed at all. Have to say. The menu is absolutely fist class. Really good variety of meals to suit all tastes.I had the Monkfish. Mouth-watering and extremely delicious. All the meals that my family ordered was hot. Cooked perfectly and so delicious. I could not recommend this restaurant highly enough. Good honest food. Cooked perfectly in very pleasant surroundings and very reasonably priced. We are going to book another table for my daughters birthday in a few weeks timePlease try this restaurant for ourself. You will not be disappointed. We certainly wasn't 5 star rating in my book
15/03/2017: Very friendly and helpful staff (just the right degree of attentiveness) the food is great and the atmosphere upstairs is good. Downstairs is not so charming, but that's a reflection on the building not the restaurant or staff. Always happy to return and am pleased to see the owners have another venue planned in the nearby village of Writtle.


The Duck Inn

Docking, King's Lynn and West Norfolk
18/03/2017: Wow, what can I say,,, greeted with such warmth, we were given a lovely welcome by all the staff, the food was absolutely delicious, we were treated so lovely, even diners at the restaurant wished us girls happy birthdays, and a lovely gentleman bought us a bottle of champagne to help us celebrate.We couldn't have asked for a better evening, in a fantastic restaurant, with super staff.All the staff went above and beyond to make our evening very special, and oh boy, it was superb.If I could rate this place higher, I certainly would.Thank you to all at The Duck InnWe love you xxx
15/03/2017: One of our favourite places for lunch; we come back here for a lazy lunch from time to time. Even mid week it is advisable to book because it is so popular. Not rushed, the service is tailored to your mood and we were in no hurry.There are two menus, the "specials" and the a la carte. We mixed and matched from the two, both featuring local produce, imaginatively served. For starters, two of us chose the goats cheese, one the beef carpaccio and one the crab salad. All three were very good. For main course, two chose the hake which was enormous, beautifully cooked and served with mashed potato and broccoli; one chose the prosaic ham egg and chips and was absolutely delighted by the taste (and size) of the meal. The fourth person chose the ox liver served with mash, onion and bacon bits and savoy cabbage; really good and filling.It was gratifying to see that the Duck does not follow the current trend in fine dining by serving tiny portions; this was fine dining with good sized portions (probably minimising the quantity of desserts sold!). However, we also enjoyed desserts; lemon sorbet, affogato, and chocolate brownie pie followed by Americano coffees.Arriving soon after midday, we left, very satisfied, a couple of hours later. Highly recommended.


The Cuckoo

Chelmsford Rural West, Chelmsford
18/03/2017: Took our daughters here for a 14th birthday party on an early evening sitting at 6pm. What a great GASTRO-PUB!!!! Wonderful food, decent value, great relaxed ambience and plenty of parking. Only missing a cuckoo clock on the wall to keep its namesake....
18/03/2017: Ok, here goes! As someone who has worked in some of Londons best restaurants Im a tricky customer but The Cuckoo is an example to of great british cooking and an how good gastropubs should be!! The owner was lovely and made to feel very welcome. Will be back again, thank you!!
