Local Restaurants & Places to Eat around Basildon

Beefeater Haywain

High Rd, Fobbing, Stanford-le-Hope SS17 9NR, UK – 01268 554500

Friendly courteous service and usually reasonably quickly considering the size/volume and number of diners. Food is reasonably priced for a pub chain with good quality. Drinks are also reasonable.

Very accomodating, astounding service. As big fans of the Beefeater franchise, my family has been going to them for decades now. The Haywain is easily the best one out of the lot that we have ever been there. Never have we had poor service, and if the slightest thing is wrong you actually can tell that the staff really are sorry about it - compared to a lot of places where it's obvious they're saying it just because they have to. This is a meeting point for myself and some of my family. So every time we spend at least 2 hours in the restaurant, and never have we been rushed or hurried out of there. We have two very fussy people in our group, and more often than not they are quite demanding, everything must be their exact way. Most restaurants you can tell absolutely loathes them two, but this is the first restaurant a waiter has assured them that they are allowed to be as fussy as they please. We even had a time where a young child in our group was sick all over the table, and they moved us with no problems. Then I knocked over a bottle of wine causing another clean up and relocation. Instead of looking annoyed, our waitress laughed and said we've broken a new record. She really made us feel okay about the situation, and that we relish more than anything at this restaurant.

Basil Spice

2, Adams Business Centre, Cranes Farm Rd, Basildon SS14 3JF, UK – 01268 523526

Again as per usual. Food on time piping hot. I have been ordering for over 4 months every week on Tuesday’s or Thursday’s( discount days) and yet Basil spice have not let down my expectations. Occasionally I pop into eat with my wife and I have been made so welcome and never hurried like some other Indian places I have been to in the past. Good luck guys and see you soon ( Grease night).

This is a MUST for Indian food... when you've got Indian people eating in there you know it's good.... it's absolutely the freshest food I've eaten. I've had many Indians meal in the past, this place is the one for me and my family now. I'd give this 10/10 fairly priced great service exceptional quality. Thank you Basil Spice you need to creat LOYALTY CARD.

Beefeater Watermill

Felmores, East Mayne, Basildon SS13 1BW, UK – 01268 522227

A pleasant Beefeater restaurant, with a modern interior and plenty of car park spaces. The inside is fairly clean, perhaps a little rough around the edges, and has a nice atmosphere. Service is good, but not spectacular, have not been wowed or seen/received anything above par before. Biggest disappointment is the food, it is very underwhelming for the price you pay. Been several times and while the food is always well presented, I have always left feeling a bit let down. Portions aren't great and neither is the quality (again, for the price). Last time I went the menu had been changed and there was not a great selection either.

Space to park car. Friendly welcome. Lovely hot Breakfast. Lovely waitress who was very helpful and efficient.
