The Fox and Raven
Barnes Mill Road, Chelmsford, Essex, CM2 6NL 01245 267364
We’ve got everything you need from a country pub near you.
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.
Our menus are full of hearty favourites and country pub classics, as well as our seasonal spring dishes, and we’ll be ready with a well-stocked bar, including cask ales, fine wines and British gin to suit very taste - which will taste all the better when enjoyed either in our beautiful gardens or by our crackling log fires.
Planning your Christmas celebrations? Our chefs have created special menus for Christmas Day, Boxing Day, New Year’s Eve and during the festive period for you and loved ones to enjoy. Take a look here and book your table for Christmas today.
We look forward to welcoming you!

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.
There’s more to The Fox and Raven than just great food and drink.
Did you know that if you’re a CAMRA member you can enjoy 20p off any pint of cask ale?
