Located in Witham we are perfectly located: we’re just off the A12, ideal for families visiting from Chelmsford or Colchester. Whatever the occasion, whether you’re just passing through or looking for a friendly local pub in which to treat the kids, we’ve got plenty of choice on the menu. Our bar is stocked with fine Marston’s ales, draught beers, ciders, wines, spirits, and soft drinks. And our two-for-one menu of pub classics is served alongside stone baked pizzas and specials, which are also two for one. Fancy something traditional, but don’t want to miss out on an extra taste sensation? Big up your meal with top add-ons, sauces, or delicious sides. Our children’s menu is just as full of great choices. For the smallest monsters, we’ve got a build-your-own meal menu that makes sure they get goodness as well as tasty favourites. Leave room for a sinful pud—or don’t! If you can’t fit it in, we’ll box your guilty pleasure up for later.
