Ate here with a group of friends and one other table occupied. The food was nice but there wasn't much of it. The dining room was shut away and felt isolated. For the price I wasn't impressed.

Sorry we don't do a cooked breakfast at the moment. We do run our full menu from 11am every day if that is of any use

The best pub venue in Maldon, set on the Blackwater river.Thames barges aline the quayside. Large patio area, with seating for over 100 people. Over looked by Maldon St Marys Church. A wonderful setting on the quay, a fantastic old working dock fo yesteryear.
