Licensee Introduction

In the heart of a the quintessential Essex village, a traditional pub with a warm welcome and stunning ale is offering the highest quality food prepared by top chefs. Alongside modern re-workings of British classics, including locally sourced game and an increasingly famous Sunday roast (served till 6pm), is a thoughtfully-selected wine list.As much thought goes into ensuring children have a welcoming experience with their own menu and a tree house in the garden. A roaring fire adds to the comfort factor - kick off your boots and contemplate the fabulous seasonal menu with a pint and your dog curled up at your warming feet.
