Welcome to our 16th Century timber framed pub where our olde-worlde exterior gives way to a fabulously fun and modern interior – setting the scene for you to enjoy our food, sample our range of beers, explore our wine list and delve into our gin collection.

We are on the border where Essex meets Cambridgeshire in the beautiful market town of Saffron Walden. We celebrate all that is great about our fantastic region – its people, provenance and personality.

Our menus are thoughtfully crafted and constantly evolve to reflect the best seasonal ingredients. Enjoy fantastic food prepared using local ingredients, where possible, to create timeless classics and innovative specials – all consciously designed dishes that encompass our guests varying tastes, from the meat loving to the gluten free diets, to the plant based.
