About The Fox and Raven
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.
