We've eaten her a lot over the years, being local to it. I can honestly say, it's fabulous. I've never had a bad meal there. The food is seasonal and the specials board changes regularly. The wine selection and drinks menu is really good and the children's menu also varied. It's well worth a visit, and the best that Burnham...

We stayed last Friday night, in Rm 9, and ate in the restaurant. We had a really lovely time at the hotel. Everyone was friendly and efficient. The restaurant was very busy that evening and every table was full, but the waiting staff seemed to take it all in their stride and we were well looked after without being smothered....

Excellent service and a lovely modern , clean room with first class on suite shower and toilet facilities. I work around the Essex area and have stayed in several hotels there. In the Burnham on Crouch area The Oyster Smack cannot be beaten for quality in its accommodation, restaurant and service. I would always recommend it. Excellent value for money.

Have you enjoyed several lunches at the oyster snack. A popular restaurant that serves Good food, good prices and fab service. Decor is spacious and modern. My only critic is parking, if the few spaces around the back is full and you're lucky to park right out front great, but failing that, the public car park is down the road.

Another fabulous evening at The Oyster Smack. Eight of us and every single one of our starters, mains and desserts were spot on tonight. Great service too. Lovely atmosphere. Every one of us commented positively on our food. My skate was one of the best I've eaten in a long time.

The car park at the rear of the premises is small so alternative parking can be found across the road in a free car park. The restaurant is nicely decorated in a modern style. There are plenty of tables and a dedicated area where you can sit and have drink before going to your table. The staff are friendly and...
