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.

    Great service and amazing food. Little disappointed that not everything on the menu was available but it made no difference to us. Would certainly recommend as good value for money.

    My friend and I so enjoyed our meal Saturday 25 August that we went again Saturday 2nd September. Disappointing this time! We both had HuntersChicken and it was very dry and a bit tough to chew. Shame because we won't be rushing back for a while. ??

    Food was well presented, tasted great, but portions could have been a little bigger with more veg.

  • ((((( 7 June 2017 by Norman from Hullbridge

    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.
