Visited on recommendations but really disappointed. Seafood platter expensive and full of water at £8.50. Purchased some crab claws which were well overpriced at 6 for £15. Main plus is the sea views. Sadly will not visit again.

Great fresh seafood, right by the water. Cockles, whelks, prawns, jellied eels, octopus, crayfish..all available cold and ready to eat. Love this place . Can sit and enjoy a beer from pub opposite and sit outside. Lovely atmosphere on cobbled street

This is a regular stop off before a pint or two down Old Leigh. “ Cockles, mussels alive alive O” My particular favourites are Jellied Eels followed by Cockles & Whelks. Give it a try.

Visited with a couple of friends for a bit of seafood and was made to feel most unwelcome. The food is good but I was genuinely made to feel that me buying it was a massive inconvenience. I can honestly say I've never had worse...More

We think this is a great place to stop by for a coffee and to buy fresh seafood to take home... If you want to eat on site there are tables inside but mainly outdoor eating overlooking the sea at Old Leigh.

We popped in for a quick plate of cockles and a cup of tea. We sat inside because it was a cold day. The inside is only small and very tight to move around. The cockles were very tasty! But £2 for such a small...More

Osbornes does the best coffee and seafood in Old Leigh and staff are super friendly. Just the best spot to watch the tides come and go especially on a sunny day
