Our services…


The oldest pub in town. Described in the Observer Food Monthly as “A great traditional freehouse, with a focus on East Anglian ales.”

We are a cosy old pub with little space for food, so we thought we’d leave that to you. Customers are welcome to bring their Fish and Chips, Indian, Chinese, Pizza or Thai with them to the pub, with cutlery, plates and napkins provided free of charge. Just order a glass of your favourite ale or wine while you chose from the selection of menus – many of the local takeaways will deliver direct to the pub! Fantastically different and more fun than a restaurant meal without the high prices.

In keeping with traditional pubs we have an open fire on through the colder months, perfect to finish that walk with the dog and relax with a pint of quality ale. The Pub has a large 60 -130 capacity function room to the rear of the property for parties and private events, it does get booked very quickly so please don’t delay. During the summer our Courtyard garden is a real sun trap offering a sheltered space to relax late into the evening.

As Manningtree’s best freehouse we source a superb selection of Guest ales and ciders from local breweries and some more traditional brews from further afield. These can all be sampled and enjoyed in our comfy chesterfields and when it’s time to go home we have flagans perfect to take home 2 or 4 pints of your favourite beers.
