NOKA is our contemporary spin on Pan Asian cuisine. Noka means ‘farmer’ or ‘farming family’ in Japanese. Our logo shows both a wheat ear and a rice ear signifying farming in the east and west with the Japanese rising sun in the middle.

You may wonder why farming? We work in the farming industry and would like to source our ingredients, where possible, from local producers, letting you know every step of the journey from ‘farm to fork’. You may also wonder why ‘Pan Asian’? We all love the delicate fresh flavours of the Far East and are looking to put our own unique touch on them.

Our evening offer will specialise in Sharing Plates that encourage a more social way of dining whilst also tempting you to taste a broad range of our delicious dishes. The menu will change regularly, giving you and your guests a great choice of food from all over Asia. We have introduced our own signature cocktails to help you get into the mood.  Our completely new bespoke wine list is specially selected to complement our food offering.

When taking over The Lounge we inherited a hugely popular breakfast and lunch service which is renowned throughout Essex. We continue to offer this service with a few minor changes to the menu. For those of you that haven’t been before we serve an wide range of European breakfasts and lunches.
