Based in the historic fishing town of Old Leigh, Osborne’s is an historic, family run business located on the shores of the Thames Estuary in South East Essex. The café is housed in an 18th century stable mews originally used to house horses and carriages delivering ale to the local public house – The Crooked Billet, just across the road. The original cockle sheds are located along Cockle Shed row, where our fishmonger and cockle processing factory are based, which remains largely unchanged since being built in the 19th century.
Since first being established in the 1880s, we have specialised in sourcing and supplying both high quality ready to eat fish and shellfish and wet fish and shellfish to customers around the world, alongside a range of freshly prepared food for customers to enjoy beside the spectacular views of the Thames Estuary.
Osborne’s Café is legendary in the area and a favourite with locals, day-trippers and tourists alike who find that it is the perfect spot for enjoying the delicious food on offer whilst enjoying the views of the estuary.
