Formerly a charming farmhouse, The Robin Hood, Clacton on Sea is now a picturesque country pub which is also close to the ocean. It serves an accomplished menu of British pub favourites, which can be enjoyed by the cosy hearth-fire or in the pretty al fresco garden. The building boasts the classic design of whitewashed walls, black timber and a red slate roof.
Hearty Sunday roasts and trusty British dishes head The Robin Hood menu, and a range just for kids offers mini versions of pub favourites. Signature Vintage pies designed by celebrity chef James Martin offer fillings like beef & merlot with buttered peas, while The Robin Hood ‘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 Robin Hood is just a 3-minute drive from central Clacton on Sea, or 2 minutes further than that to the seafront.

Brilliant! Cannot fault the staff, the surroundings, keeping us safe, AND the food was exceptional. Well done everyone involved. We WILL be back

Lovely food. Nice cosy place to eat. Very clean.. Only thing worth knowing.. Go to the bar when you arrive to book in. There is no sign to tell you. We were left over 10 minutes. Waiting at the beginning of the restaurant while staff looked at us then ignored us. Which was not good for us as my hubby has chronic fatigue and uses a stick. And we had to borrow a chair as he couldn't stand waiting.

Very enjoyable meal. The only downside was no roast Turkey or Beef despite it being Sunday. How could you run out of these items?

Not a good experience. Had booked weeks in advance . Told food would take 45 to 60 minutes to arrive, so we ordered starters of dough sticks and flat bread to keep us going but they weren’t good. Then the fish and chips which 4 of us had was awful. Not sure what the fish was. We were told it was cod but we doubted it very much. The kitchen said it was cod but admitted it wasn’t good! So, why serve it? ? Also the batter was wet and soggy. At least they didn’t charge us for it. The puddings were fine. The staff were very pleasant and obviously rushed off their feet. We’ve been here many times over the years when visiting family and this was the worst dining experience we’ve had there.
