1 The Cockle Shed, High Street, Leigh-on-Sea, SS9 2ER

This specialist seafood restaurant is hidden away in the historic fishing port of Old Leigh, famous for its fishing boats and cockle sheds. At this sunlight-filled seafood haven you can look out over the peaceful waters of the estuary. The restaurant has a boutique feel, which is perfect for those who seek an intimate dining experience. There are also two decked areas, ideal for long summer nights with a bottle of sauvignon blanc and an exquisite feast of seafood. As it took time to narrow our choices, we decided to order their irresistible tasting plate and one of their classic aperitifs. One of the many things I like about this restaurant is the fact you are given the opportunity to select either a small or large portion size. The wine list also has something for every palate, offering everything from Rioja blanco to pinot noir. My friend and I ordered the crispy squid and the scallops to start, both of which were melt-in-your-mouth gorgeous, followed by the seafood platter and the exquisite salt-baked sea bream. I was able to take my chocolate truffle dessert home with me, which I enjoyed the following evening. I was also lucky enough to get a sneak peek at the summer menu - look out for the mouth-watering tapas plates - as well as a preview of the exclusive dining-for-two menu, featuring dishes that are out of this world.
