We recently had a brunch on a Saturday morning at Essence.
It had been a long time between meals there, probably because of the numerous other restaurants giving great food and service in the immediate area.
The food was excellent and the new decor really brought the restaurant up to date.
Good portions and happy to go there again.

Thank Neil S

Met up with old friends here for what turned out to be a long lunch. The staff were delightful and not intrusive yet ensured we were kept supplied with liquid refreshments. We were attended to quickly by a bright personable male waiter. All three of us who chose the chicken and bacon sandwich declared it as very tasty and just the right size for lunch with some fries to the side. The pumpkin soup was declared good too. A delicious hot chocolate was served promptly. A good range of choice for both brunch and lunch though we ate about noon both menus were available till 3 pm. Not many other diners eating at the same time- not sure why as this was a great choice for us to meet and enjoy good food with friends. Maybe there are too many other similar places in Feilding?

Spent a very pleasant evening here last night with friends. All in all a very enjoyable experience and a very professionally run and staffed establishment. the attention to detail was evident. The food, particularly the fish was delicious.I had a small issue with the lamb rack and this too was dealt with professionally and without fuss.
Well worth a visit!
