We came across this pub on a country drive, one dreary day and had lunch there. The pub is really cosy inside, with beautiful old features and crackling fires. We ordered off the lunch menu and found the service to be absolutely fine, despite what some of the other reviews have said. Would definitely go back again, loved the pub... More

The recent response we made of our dreadful meal on this review was backed up by witnesses to the event that afternoon, I thank them for their honest and true comments, we're certainly not whingers! by any means and a situation that happened some 6 months previous whereby we got 8 chips each on the fish and chip plate!!

The title says it all. Lovely location and beautiful old building but without these positive assets it wouldn't survive. The staff were also very friendly and welcoming. However there are so many great pubs around serving superb food who have to rely on great produce from their kitchen rather than a great view and a high tide to attract diners.... More

Having had a delightful lunch here a couple of months ago we were so disappointed with our visit yesterday. The latest menu is very limited and, for what is a country pub, over-priced. The omelette looked more like a Belgian crepe, being wafer thin. The beer battered fish, served on a bed of a dozen chips, was not the most... More

Always have passed this place on the way to Mersea but have always wondered what it's like. So we went in just as dinner service was beginning so there wasn't many people in there . But was told we could sit in the bar area or the restaurant we choose the restaurant. The restaurant is gorgeous and relaxing and even... More

Day 10 of our cycling tour of East Anglia (Aug 23rd) and we are staying at the Peldon Rose. This is a chocolate box pretty pub dating from the 15th century. It’s set back from the very busy B1025 Colchester Road, not a good road for cycling on. The interior is as one would hope, oak beamed and characterful. Upstairs... More

Lovely sunny day what could be nicer than to have a pub lunch. Oh dear what a total disaster. my partner and I both chose the same thing from the specials board, Pulled pork something in a dry roll.The tasteless pork was smothered in something of the same consistency, a tomato based gloop that had come from a tin of...

A lovely location and regular venue for our itinerant cricketers before our regular fixture against West Mersea. The Peldon Rose has a very attractive interior and the benefit of spacious well maintained gardens. On this occasion the food was a touch disappointing. The chicken caesar came in quasi kit form. A limp lettuce and parmesan shaving base with rather large... More

We have eaten at The Peldon Rose for many years, but our meal today was a disaster. Mainly the lack of choice on the menu for lunch.. Usually there is a good selection from which to choose, but they have obviously changed their lunchtime menu and now only offer beef burger, fish and chips, vegetable lasagne or scampi. The special... More
