Sanctuary! Spotted on social media that they were doing delivery.
We ordered hot dog, ribs, fries, corn on the cob, coleslaw, garlic bread. Delivered super quick too.
Only docked 1 star as we’d ordered 2 lots of ribs and they only had one. They phoned straight back to rectify it. It was all ok we just ordered other bits. Fully appreciate this delivery stuff is early days. They kindly delivered some Coke Cola. No need we were just grateful for a dining out treat at home.
Recommended.

I come here fairly regularly for breakfast. I also tried a hotdog once which was massive. Always friendly and great service from all the staff and the range on the menu is good. We were served by Kerry this time who is always friendly and helpful when it comes to specials.

What a delight to dine at Grumpys!
Ordered a mini works and a the works.
Included with both was tea or coffee and either a slice of toast/bread or fried slice.
Super Great value for £5.95 and £7.95!
Food was cooked perfect. The sausage and bacon cooked properly not under done and the fried egg perfect not snotty. Portions were big, food was hot and the sausages and bacon were good quality with the baked beans being Heinz.
This is a price hard to find now for a good quality/good sized breakfast in Southend!
(It is a shame to see so many places ripping their customers off with over priced, bad quality food me being a victim to this so many times).

Great atmosphere even though the diner only had a few other customers in it, the 50’s music was still playing and the staff singing along And what really stood out was the friendly staff working there.
The chef who came over with the food was polite and happy and it Was a pleasure to be served by Ryan with our drinks. He clearly enjoys his job and it makes the whole experience more enjoyable when your waiter/waitress is polite and approachable. He couldn’t have been any more helpful, a tip definitely deserved.
Clean plates all round.
Will definitely return again keep up the good work Grumpys. A local business which if it carries on like this will be around for a long time! :)
