Mangetout - a great restaurant with a huge heart....

by Banana Crumble | Nov 04, 2019

Mangetout Grill and Smokehouse is a restaurant to be found at 9 London Road, Southend-On Sea in Essex. Having recently moved to a bigger premises Mangetout have kept all of the characteristics that people loved from the old site but introduced some great new ideas that will definitely draw the diners in.  Mangetout is certainly a restaurant that we would recommend and in fact we held our opening launch party at the old site in September 2017 and Chief Banana Matt also held his 21st birthday there so we are already big fans of the restaurant. We feature good news and positive articles so just saying how great a restaurant is wouldn’t normally fit our criteria but when we read about Mangetout’s amazing deal we felt we just had to pass on this good news.

Mangetout are offering all Emergency Service men and women including people volunteering at the local Coastguard station a 20% discount off food not just for them but also for a friend.

As you can see from their Instagram post they are recognising anyone who are, in their words, the backbone of Britain and they recognise how their bravery is inspirational. We definitely agree with these sentiments but it is also nice to see this being recognised in such a positive way. To find out more about Mangetout then #mangetoutgrill or their website is

You definitely won’t be disappointed with everything that they  have to offer.

Looking through all the Facebook posts and comments about the offer it is amazing to see all the positive comments that are being made and we hope that everyone that goes enjoys the experience as much as we have done every time we have been. Thank you Mangetout for recognising this inspirational group of people.
