New Seasonal Flavours


Our chefs have been busy cooking up some new dishes to see in the new season and have created the perfect dishes to say hello to the darker nights including pulled lamb shepherd’s pie, king prawn Vietnamese curry and a very tasty wild venison pie.

Not forgetting those autumnal desserts, we can’t get enough of our latest apple & frangipane strudel with lashings of custard.


A charming village pub nestled in the heart of West Hanningfield on the unspoiled greenbelt of the Essex city, Chelmsford.

This soul-soothing, local pub offers a fresh, seasonal menu coupled with local craft beverages, all of which can be enjoyed in our vintage, east-coast setting.

Our alfresco lawn is the perfect oasis for any passing visitor or returning local. Take in the panoramic views of the rolling hills or stay warm by our log burner snuggled inside. Both are perfect watching the world pass by with a drink in hand.
