Originally a quaint farmhouse, the The Fowlers Farm still values its pastoral heritage and delivers traditional British food, with oaken beams and a countryside situation. The 500-year-old building boasts a cosy hearth and an al fresco beer garden with eye-catching views of the surrounding country.

Hearty Sunday roasts and trusty British dishes head The Fowlers Farm menu, and a range just for kids offers mini versions of pub favourites. Signature Vintage pies offer fillings like beef & merlot with buttered peas, while The Fowlers Farm ‘Vintage classics’ menu includes lemon & garlic-roasted chicken with seasoned chips.

Paying homage to the Great British pub, the Vintage Inn bar stock includes cask-conditioned beers, real ales and a meticulously compiled wine list. Thirst-quenching offerings include seasonal non-alcoholic cocktails and freshly-pressed juices, and rich coffee is brewed freshly throughout the day.

The Fowlers Farm is only a 15-minute walk from Braintree Freeport Train Station, or a 5-minute drive into the town centre.

    Very good meal at a reasonable price. The table was ready as soon as we arrived, the meal choice was good and the service fast, my only niggle was that it was my sons Birthday and I asked if they could put a candle in his desert, which never happened.

    Our Saturday evening menu was as shown on the webpages , the fixed price 2 or 3 course menu was not available though on Saturday and Sunday. However The Bookatable deal did not include the fixed price menu .
    On arriving ( a few minutes late) we were welcomed to the Fowlers Farm and shown to our circular table, that we had requested on line for 5 diners. The restaurant was busy and there were plenty of staff available to take orders and serve meals . The service was efficient and professional although not as 'customer friendly' as I would have liked, I suspect this is the style used by this company.
    We did not have starters and ordered the main meals which duly arrived well presented . The meals included the steak and mushroom pie which had a very flaky top with the steak and mushroom contained in a dish below the flaky pastry top. Meat content was good and tasty and well cooked . Other meals included Cod and chips , Hunters chicken and steak , all were well received and a good standard. Vegetables which came with all the meals were a little bland , boiled and then baked carrots were a little 'limp'. Side vegetables could be ordered however.

    We all had puddings which included chocolate brownie , which were as expected with good presentation but not to my taste.

    Missed out on my favorite starter as they had sold out and had not been made aware due to it being a new menu and they did not know how well things will sell.
    Over all the food was amazing and really enjoyed.
    Loved the welcoming staff and the warm fire place.

    Extremely friendly staff and the ambiance on a cold, drizzly Saturday afternoon was perfect. The menu was very extensive and all very tasty. It was a good find, even for our relatives who come from the area!

    Food was brilliant will definitely be visiting again! Although, our waitress didn't seem to be at all enthusiastic about her job at all, and everything seemed like to much of a big ask, but that won't put us off.

    We had a table booked for 2pm, was very disappointed that many of the dishes were unavailable, we were told on sitting down, no lamb, no platters and a few others. Waitress stated they had been very busy and had run out.
