Food, Drink & Menus at The Swallowtail Restaurant

Restaurant & Bar

The restaurant seats 100 and we can cater for visiting groups, functions and families. Our main three course menu is individually priced so you can have as much or as little as you wish. We also have a children’s menu and a range of sandwiches and baguettes. On Sundays we serve a three course carvery which is very popular. Our produce is locally sourced and our chef Scott’s style of cooking is a mixture of British and foreign cuisine, kept simple and cooked well.

Our bar is the hub of the Yacht Harbour, with a relaxed atmosphere and a wide range of drinks available including beers from local brewery, Wibblers. Hot drinks are served throughout the day and we have a large balcony where you can sit and enjoy the view over the moorings to the River Crouch.

"Great food and service, friendly staff looking forward to going again."
