Osborne Bros

Seafood in Southend-On-Sea

Part fish stall, part bare-bones cafe, Osborne's is set right on Old Leigh's waterfront. It serves up expansive Thames Estuary views, best observed while tucking into crab, jellied eels or a seafood platter (cockles, mussels, prawns and crayfish; £9) and downing a pint from the pub next door.

It often stays open later in the summer and on fine weekends.
