Not visited Fowlers Farm for many years but visited twice in the last couple of weeks. They always find us a table, as tend to not book. Staff have always been friendly and helpful. It's a very busy place so it can be hard to give good service but they have managed it. Food is good pub grub, arrives reasonably... More

Came here on the way back from shopping at Freeport so worked up an appetite. We both ordered from the lunch time menu..starter and main. Food arrived in good time. Both had the pate which was nice and both had the burger as a main. All in all was nice and service and bar area where we sat was good.

The waitress (Victoria) was really attentive and friendly. The food selection and quality was great and the atmosphere was lovely. Couldn't ask for more. Prompted my daughter to ask "why haven't...

I took my work colleges here for my leaving meal and was content with the beautiful bar & restaurant. However, the service we received was nothing short of appalling. Once the bill came, the waitress made it very confusing and 'forgot' to deduct the pre-paid £60 deposit twice. Then, while trying to decipher where we went wrong in adding up... More

We called in for Sunday lunch with our doggie who was welcomed in the right of the bar area. (It's not so easy to find a dog friendly eatery in Braintree). Ordered the meals alright and they came reasonably quickly. Portions not large but big enough for us and quite tasty. However, when my wife went to order a pudding... More

We have been to many vintage inns and we have found that the food has always been fantastic, but the service always lets in down. This was the first time we were happy with both. Hope this is not a one off, as the food is so good.
