If you visit Maldon in Essex & fancy a nice drink by the river Chelmer, then make your way to the bottom of Church Street, where you will find this pub on the corner right opposite the quay. On a fine day you can drink...More

Revisited this lovely riverside pub. It has had an excellent makeover and the welcome is warm and friendly. Take a window seat and enjoy the view of the marvellous sailing barges at the quayside. The menu is pretty reasonable but beware portion sizes are massive....More

The food here is really good and menus are being changed. Unfortunately the immature and incompetent staff let this otherwise delightful eatery down. What a shame. It is no wonder the Queens head has a better reputation where the staff are more mature and better...More

We popped in for a drink - we sat outside to enjoy the sunshine and take advantage of watching the world go by. I did have to change my glass as it had lipstick on. The food that was coming out all looked good.

I was just curious to find out if now it is the winter if the hours of the pub opening has changed. Me and my husband occasionally go for a little walk around the quay in the evenings & like to drop off at the Jolly or the queens head for a quiet drink on our way home. Last night we passed the pub at quarter past 10 and it was closed up. But on previous visits i have been it is open until 1am. Just wondering for the next time I visit. Thank you.
