Filled with rustic charm and original features, Shaw Farm is a charming 17th-century country pub beside a tranquil duck pond. Gourmet British and international recipes are served alongside cask ales, with roaring fires making for cosy evenings inside, and al fresco seating offering picturesque waterside dining.
Hearty British pub classics as well as irresistible international recipes are served on the Shaw Farm menu. Indulgent sharing bites to start include box-baked camembert topped with cider-soaked raisins and served with rustic bread, while from the grill menu there are succulent steaks and even a premium Wagyu burger. Signature mains feature fresh seafood delicacies like risotto made with black peal scallops, lobster and prawn, topped with Italian hard cheese, and gourmet takes on British favourites are showcased, such as the slow-cooked ham hock with orange and malt whisky marmalade glaze.
For pudding at Shaw Farm in Chelmsford, there are classics like sherry trifle, Eton mess and Bakewell slice, as well as a selection of British cheeses. From the bar, carefully selected cask ales are served, along with world beers and wines.
Also offering fantastic Sundays roasts and dedicated children's menus, Shaw Farm is an incredibly inviting rural spot, and is only a 3-minute drive from South Woodham Ferrers Rail Station.

2nd visit to Shaw Farm. 1st visit we had a very long wait for the food before being served, nearly hour but food was excellent and waitress very attentive. On my second visit we ordered the food whilst waiting in the bar for our table, this was the right move, when we were called to the table, food was served within 5 mins. Again the food was excellent. My favourite is the roast dinner. Love the small pudding desert too. Will return.

We all had the roast beef. Food was excellent, staff are very friendly, the only problem is there are not enough of them.

First class. We took another couple with us who both said the food was excellent. We took advantage of the 20% reduction for booking in January which is a nice gesture at this time of year. I also asked for a table not near to a family with children and this was done. Overall, the service, atmosphere and food could not be faulted and our friends have requested we all go again in the near future.

A great atmosphere and good food. Service was excellent as was the service. So what was the downside? Around 5/6 items unavailable from the menu and this on a Saturday night that was not particularly busy. I have been on other busier occasions, Sunday lunch, when a full menu was available.
