Welcome to our guide

From the rural retreats of Battlesbridge and Little Burstead, to the bracing seaside beauty of Clacton, the 13 hostelries that make up the Vintage Inns of Essex Collection are unique places to visit with some important common features!

Most of our Inns have pleasant walks from the door and many have country parks, and heritage attractions nearby. Each has their own charm, but all offer carefully restored period features and friendly staff. All our Inns serve a full menu of traditional British dishes seven days a week, plus appetizing blackboard specials, and a selection of succulent roasts on a Sunday. At the bar, meanwhile, you'll be tempted by a fine range of Real Cask Conditioned Ales and an excellent choice of wines with a flavour and price to suit every taste and pocket.
