About The Fox and Raven
Thank you for all your messages after the fire over the weekend. All pub staff are fine and we're open and trading as normal, so look forward to welcoming you.
The Fox and Raven in Chelmsford is a country pub & restaurant oozing rural charm and rustic character. Our picturesque surroundings provide the perfect backdrop for savouring the hearty, seasonal pub-food on our menu, and the carefully nurtured cask ales and fine wines gracing our bar.
Book a table online and enjoy a spot by our roaring log-fire. Or make the best of the British summertime by eating alfresco in our pretty beer garden.
A little pub history
The Fox and Raven has not always been a public house. The inn is listed in the 1851 directory of Springfield as the Barnes Farm farmhouse. Springfield took its name from the numerous springs in the area, and in the Doomsday book is called Springafeld.
Make a day of it
Our stately looking inn is on The Chelmer and Blackwater Navigation, which runs through a largely unspoilt part of rural Essex - but if you love shopping, there's a retail park just across the road from us.
