Eat & Drink

Good food is at the heart of what we do and we have the awards to prove it! We use the finest local ingredients to create the best in casual dining. Mersea is well known for its seafood and fish, with Mersea Island Fresh Catch, the local fishing co-operative, supplying us with freshly landed fish on a daily basis.

We have put a contemporary touch on traditional pub cuisine, all made on the premises ranging from great steaks and fish and chips, to pies and pasta and on Sundays what we, and many others, say is the best roast lunch on the island. Many of the dishes can be ordered in smaller portions for children or grown-ups with small appetites. All accompanied by great of wines from around the world, along with a selection of well-kept cask beers.

Whether you choose to eat in the restaurant, bar or garden, all with fantastic views over the Blackwater estuary, you can be assured of a great standard of personal service. We serve food 12-3 & 6-9 Monday to Saturday and 12-6 on Sunday. Booking is advised at weekends.
