Foundry Lane, Burnham-on-Crouch, CM0 8BL

Sitting on the River Crouch within Burnham Yacht Harbour you’ll find Swallowtail Restaurant & Bar, a beautiful restaurant boasting great food, real ale, and quality beer and wine, all with a backdrop of spectacular views. Located on one of Burnham’s picturesque coastal walk routes with plenty of wildlife to discover, this delightful restaurant is the ideal pit-stop for those looking for a mid-ramble treat.

Upon arrival you’ll be delighted by the open and airy dining room, which can hold up to 100 diners. Cream walls, light oak tables and floor-to-ceiling windows perfectly framing the beautiful harbourside combine to create a relaxing atmosphere. Once seated, take your time to peruse the menu – with so many delicious dishes on offer, you’ll find it hard to choose just one. While you’re waiting for your meal to arrive why not order a selection of nibbles for the table? Marinated Mediterranean olives, Italian garlic ciabatta and sausages cooked in honey and mustard are perfect for sharing. Highly recommended starters include plump and juicy prawns cooked over charcoal served with sweet chilli sauce. The homemade smoked mackerel pâté is equally satisfying; smooth and flavoursome, it’s an absolute delight.

Moules marinières, sticky barbecue ribs and pan-roasted cod loin cooked with mussels and chorizo are just a few examples of main meals that are sure to delight. For an authentic taste of Spain, plump for the Swallowtail’s take on paella. Made with your choice of seafood, chicken or an assortment of vegetables, you’re guaranteed to be impressed. To round off your meal, indulge in one of the decadent desserts. The lemon posset with a shortbread biscuit is a welcome palate-cleanser after a two-course meal, while the sticky toffee pudding with custard is a tried-and-tested favourite.

What’s more, Swallowtail also holds regular events including 80s evenings and blues nights, where you’re invited to dance the night away with a tipple of your choice. With all-inclusive wedding packages and the option to hire the restaurant, which seats 100 people, for functions also on offer, it’s no surprise that Swallowtail is such a popular destination for any occasion.
