Welcome to The Fowler's Farm in Braintree


We’ve got everything you need from a country pub near you.

Fowler’s Farm has been a part of Braintree’s local history for 600 years. During the Second World War, the farm became a safety hub for the local community as they hid from nightly bombing raids. Decades later, it’s now a warm and vibrant country pub with a fantastic garden that’s perfect for those long, warmer, evenings for you, your family and your four-legged friends!

Our menus are full of hearty favourites and country pub classics, including our steak & mushroom pie and beer-battered fish and chips, as well as seasonal surprises if you’re after something a little different.

We look forward to welcoming you, and we’ll ready with a well-stocked bar, including cask ales, lager, fine wines, British gin and soft drinks to suit every taste — which will taste all the better when enjoyed in our beautiful and picturesque gardens.
