Right on the river this nice pub offers a good choice of food and drink. Expect it to get very busy on sunny days but nice and warming on a cold afternoon.

Great food here, generous portions too. Chips were very nice and crispy. Friendly staff and food came incredibly quickly. Nice views of the waterfront. Would definitely recommend. Seafood platter was substantial and scrummy, great tasting tartare sauce.

The place is situated right on the quay, next to the river. The menu is offering something for most tastes, the fish and chips were really fresh and tasty. A place to come back to.

This is a legal question, so I suggest googling to find out the law on the employment of young people in premises serving alcohol.

Sorry we don't do a cooked breakfast at the moment. We do run our full menu from 11am every day if that is of any use

Dogs are allowed in both bars which also serve food. Not in the restaurant away from the bars.

The best pub venue in Maldon, set on the Blackwater river.Thames barges aline the quayside. Large patio area, with seating for over 100 people. Over looked by Maldon St Marys Church. A wonderful setting on the quay, a fantastic old working dock fo yesteryear.
