The Best Pub In Harwich – Official!

We were delighted to be shortlisted for the 2018 Tendring CAMRA Pub Of The Year finals and although we didn’t win this year (third place across all Tendring pubs in both Ale & Cider categories) we were judged to be the best pub in Harwich! Many thanks to all the Tendring CAMRA members who visited us and voted in the Ale and Cider categories.

Sunday Roasts

Our Sunday roasts have become well known and very popular, so much so that unfortunately we had to turn away customers for the last two weeks, which we don’t like doing.

We would love to fit you all and not let people down, if you would like to ensure you have one of our lovely roast dinners in front of the gorgeous open fire log burner please book in advance as we feel quite bad turning away customers. Tel 01255 502927
