Lovely old pub, near the cockle sheds at the start of Old Leigh. Food a bit slow coming but good quality when it arrives. A bit pricy but OK.

Lovely Old Leigh on the Thames Estuary. Great for pubs and food all the way along. Good wet fish shops at the fishermen's cooperative and Osbornes near the cockle sheds.
