Over the weekend we compiled a list of Maldon eateries selected by the highest ranking reviews on Trip Advisor.

With months of closure hitting the hospitality sector, restaurants need our support now more than ever.


But what did our readers have to say about their favourites?

The majority of you agreed that the Queen Victoria pub deserved the number one spot.

Many of you praised the staff for their hospitality and service.

One reader said: "Well done food is lovely at the Queen Victoria as is the service and staff with many smiles best thing that ever happened James taking on our local pub that also enjoys looking after and serving our community."

One said: "Well done to the Queen Victoria, a well-deserved win."

Another commented: "Well done James and staff at the Queen Vic. Always lovely welcome, friendly staff and delicious food. Can’t fault it!"

Many of you also agreed that runners up Rubino Kitchen and Dante's were deserving winners.

But some readers felt that fan favourites were left off the list.

One reader said: "Where's Sark, it should be number one."
