Our Story

Alec’s Restaurant Bar & Grill opened in 2010 and has established itself as one of Essex’s leading fish Restaurants. Attracting customers from near and far, Alec’s prides itself on quality ingredients and exceptional service.

Unwind with a premium bottle of wine or signature cocktail in the comfortable lounge or bar area, before taking a seat in the elegant main dining room, which can accommodate 120 guests.
Roaring fires in the winter and a delightful outdoor dining area in the summer, only enhance the elegant building.

The menu at Alec’s Restaurant Bar & Grill is traditionally British and sets out to provide simple, quality fresh food. Although predominantly a seafood restaurant serving the finest fish and shellfish, mouth-watering meat dishes add to this impressive menu.

Alec’s Restaurant is proud to follow the MSC code of conduct for sustainably sourced seafood. Plus, all seafood and fish are wild and ‘day boat caught’ from across Britain.
The finest, most succulent cuts of meat are sourced from across the globe, with Welsh lamb and ‘USDA’ strip loins from the USA frequenting the menu.

From the freshly baked bread to all dishes cooked to order, you are guaranteed a fine dining experience to remember.
