Good traditional pub, log fire, basic table and chairs, good choice of food, Cottage pie and bangers and mash both served with fresh veg, reasonable portions and each under a tenner, good value. Service was not over the top. Forgot to mention the choice of real ale..nice

Fantastic pub grub and the best fish & chips in Essex plus on most Thursday's the landlord cooks his own pizzas in the Victorian wood fired oven get there early . You can't book a table it's...

We visited this lovely country pub on the recommendation of a friend & were not disappointed, the food listed on their menu & specials boards are very comprehensive & are all prepared using fresh local produce & we chose Gammon & Chicken stack from their specials boards.These meals arrived after a short while & were found to be very tasty...

Amazing food with really generous portions. We both had the fish and chips which was delicious - amazing batter! Other options on both the regular menu and specials boards were very tempting too. My companion said the wine was very nice too. Will definitely be back!

Had a lovely Sunday lunch here. A refreshing change from the usual Sunday roast that is offered in most other pubs in the area. I had a delicious whole grilled sea bass with salad and chips. Hubby had a humongous double burger with haggis, which he rated highly. Best thing about this pub is that they have a stunning selection... More
