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.

    Sharing starter was yummy. Salmon in main course was very greasy, but ok. Service was first class with friendly staff. Lovely ambience in restaurant itself. Lots of parking.

    Excellent value meal from the weekend taster menu, 2 courses for £22 or 3 courses for £26 plus 2 drinks. Relaxed friendly environment.

    Excellent food, great service, just a shame that the wine by the glass is so pricey

  • (((** 5 January 2018 by Andrew from Braintree

    Nice environment but let down by the quantity of vegetables/size of side orders for the price you pay. Roast meat is good but service is slow

    Our visit was a family one and everything was perfect. The waitress was particularly efficient and friendly. The food too was faultless. We would definitely go again booking was on line

    Very disappointed as 3 of us ordered the Hunters Chicken and even though it came with barbecue sauce the chicken was extremely dry and seemed as if it was cooked a lot earlier then kept just warm for serving .The chips were lovely .

    Two of us had the apple pie which again was barely warm and the pastry very soft .

    The rest of the meal was ok but certainly not as good as the recommendations from friends so I was disappointed .
