STEVE and Simon were both Soul DJs that played the Top House pub in Aveley and The Prince of Wales pub in South Ockendon. Steve says “I used to go to the Goldmine when I wasn’t working myself. People would flock in from all around the country just to be part of the famous Soul scene. The Club was demolished over twenty years ago which has left us with just good memories”.

WHAT a night… Simply the best night out I have ever had in Essex. Having never been to a
comedy club before. I had no idea what I was letting myself in for, however from the second my fiancée and I arrived I knew it was going to be a good night. We drove through the Orsett Hall entrance following the trail of glowing lights leading to the car park, and listened for the sound of laughter to lead us to the pavilion. I’m sure this plan would have worked if we weren’t 2 hours early; so instead we followed the pathway marked ‘comedy club’ to check out the pre show buffet and help prop up the bar.
Amuse Bouche: “Egg and Soldier” This was delightful first course. You have to be curious when you are served with a boiled egg on a bed of straw! But deep within is the spicy delights of chorizo. It really does set the scene. Roast Duck Breast: Liver and foie gras parfait, plum and almond The combination of textures and tastes are outstanding. We would recommend this with a Merlot or Cabernet Sauvignon. The breast was succulent and all the elements perfectly complimented each other.
