A beloved pub in a 17th-century farm has re-opened its doors and launched a new menu after a major refurbishment.

After undergoing extensive work, the Shaw Farm has received a complete transformation with a newly lit beer garden and elegant interiors.

The new look pays homage to the traditional roots and picturesque location of the South Woodham Ferrers pub, close to the Call Of The Wild Zoo, while also breathing new life into the pub giving it a fresh feel.

Along with a new appearance, the Shaw Farm is also offering a revamped menu which boasts a selection of popular dishes including oven-baked chicken forestiere, seared fillets of sea bass served with king prawns, and a range of signature skewers straight from the chargrill.

Commenting on the pub’s new look, general manager Joanne Stevenson said: “We’re absolutely delighted to welcome both our regulars and first-time guests to experience the Shaw Farm’s new, refreshed look.

“Whether you're seeking a picturesque setting to enjoy high-quality dining or a cosy spot by the fire to enjoy a drink, our pub has it all."

Historically, the Shaw Farm dates to the 17th century, under the reign of Queen Anne. The farm was given a special pardon to start the production of bread for the area.

Still set in the original farmhouse, the watering hole proudly serves as a central hub for the community and continues to welcome furry friends, making it the ideal pit-stop for dog walkers.
