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.

    Very friendly service. There were 6 of us plus a young grandson and we were conveniently seated in a private alcove. Everyone was happy with the main courses. The steaks were very good as well as the sea bass and hunters chicken.

    I booked online for lunch on Easter Monday as we had eaten there before for my birthday. The food, the service and the friendliness of the staff make the whole experience thoroughly enjoyable for whatever the occasion is.

    Had a lovely experience, met by restaurant manager who was warm and friendly. Waitress was very quick and polite, we all had a different meal and we all enjoyed. Very well presented and our puddings were exceptional. Definitely will plan another visit.

    A great place, good relaxed atmosphere and superb roast dinner!
    The only criticism would be a annoying squeaking door from the kitchens which opened and closed every 10 seconds naturally, very annoying if you were sitting close by as we were, a really ear piercing squeal??, please oil it or I may bring my own next time!
    Other than that faultless!!

    There was no carvery which is why we booked (it was amazing last time) we choose two roast dinners and a hunters chicken. (We were dinning at shaw farm to cheer ourselves up due to loosing my dad very suddenly two days earlier) the food was warm, roast potatoes over cooked, meat tasteless, cauliflower cheese was cauliflower with a spoonful of sauce on the top. We spoke to the manager who listened to our complaints, agreed with them and very kindly wrote our bill off. We will go back as we hope this was a one off - bring back the carvery.

    We really enjoyed it last night. Food was lovely and so was the dessert. We might come to Shaw Farm again sometime next year.
