Welcome to

Sir Henry’s

A family-run resaurant since 2013

Sir Henry’s is a stunning family restaurant located in Essex serving great food at great prices. The 13th century building has been beautifully designed to highlight its original features and is surrounded by a 13th century moat with a beautiful landscaped beer garden, perfect for any Summer day.

Sir Henry’s


The pub takes it’s name from Henry Gernet, a sheriff and executioner of Essex who rented the land during the 14th century. The building was originally built around 1275 and has been occupied ever since. Although the building has suffered numerous fires, parts of the original structure remains, including the whole front of the restaurant and is now the only standing V frame building in Essex


Our team of chefs have created a menu that combines all-time pub classics with our own specialty dishes. We use local suppliers that source great local ingredients to make unbelievable tasting food.



Sunday is a big deal to us at Sir Henry’s. It brings family and friends together like nothing else. We pride ourselves on serving one of the best roasts in Essex and cook everything fresh every Sunday, from the fluffy and crispy roast potatoes to the slow roasted sirloin beef loin. Don’t forget to book though, as we are extremely busy every Sunday.



Every week our team of chefs create several dishes that are normally not found on our menu, these dishes are created to use locally sourced seasonal produce and give more options to our customers. Don’t forget to ask a member of our staff for this weeks specials.



Join us for chef’s club on any weekday and enjoy Sir Henry’s most popular dishes at reduced prices. A perfect idea for the midweek treat with all the family.
