Welcome to The Duke's Seafood. 

We are a family run, local, licensed open air restaurant and takeaway, with an onsite fishmonger, serving hot and cold seafood right on the waters edge.

Boasting our own private waterside seating terrace, we serve a fresh seafood menu, with delights ranging from seafood platters to local Mersea oysters and sandwiches to hand picked dressed crabs, and more!


In our kitchen, you will find our local chef, cooking up an ever changing, freshly cooked hot menu, served in our street food style, ECO friendly food packaging. You will often find a selection of bake at home products, BBQ goodies & homemade marinades, sauces and other treats available on our counter to take away with you!

With local wines and beers among the alcohol available to purchase, freshly brewed coffees, hot and cold drinks, vegetarian options and homemade sweet treats and ice creams, there is something for all. 

We have our own boat, landing the freshest of local fish, which you will find on our wet fish counter each week. We also have an onsite fishmonger who can fillet and prepare your fish to your requirements. Have a look at what's available this week here!

Situated on Coast Road, with outside tables overlooking the estuary, our location is rivaled by few.  We look forward to seeing you down by the sea soon, but in the meantime, why not like us on facebook @dukesmersea or follow us on instagram @thedukesseafood for all our latest updates!
