About us

The site on which the inn stands was the Brooker farmhouse, which was originally known as a building called 'Feveralds' or 'Brewers' which had belonged to the Reynolds family 300 years ago. The date the building was constructed;1823, can be seen engraved into the stone above one of our fireplaces today.

A country pub oozing rural charm and rustic character, our picturesque surroundings provide the perfect backdrop for savouring the hearty, seasonal pub-food on our menu, and the carefully nurtured cask ales and fine wines gracing our bar.

Whether you are planning dinner with friends or Sunday lunch with family, book a table online and enjoy some quality time with those you love the most.

We called ahead to check if they were dog friendly and their response was a definite yes and very friendly. When we arrived we and our dog were greeted by very friendly staff and customers, all of who continued to make a fuss of our dog throughout lunch. The food was good and flavoursome and well presented. All in all it was a couple of enjoyable hours well spent.

Previous visit - May 2023 - Lovely meal, had to remind the staff that they missed the chips on the fish cake meal, received about 5 minutes later. I really rate the summer drinks on the menu. We enjoyed our meal out. Great location, plenty of parking, if you are tall watch your head on the way in. Toilets clean. Will visit again. November 2023 - revisited for our anniversary meal. The restaurant has changed hands. Now only one waiter for the who restaurant and one lady on the bar. Waited to be greeted and seated. Because the waiter was chatting to other customers for some time and too polite to say hold on a second I need to serve these customers. Waited to be served for our order to be taken and in the end the bar lady could see we were cheesed off by the wait and served us. The waiter was chatting to the couple behind us about their bad experience at another vintage inn pub but they were ruining our experience at this vintage inn. Waited 40 minutes from when we arrived till when our starter was delivered. Waited a further 30-40 minutes for our main course. We won’t come again unless we have endless amounts of time to sit and wait. My partner had travelled over from Ipswich and I had just finished work we wanted a quick pub meal together to celebrate our anniversary before he had to go back to Ipswich. The prices have increased £17.75 for a signature burger and chips. Lovely pub with all the twinkling lights on the ceiling. Plenty of parking. The service needs some work.

Lovely quaint pub,food lovely,staff friendly😊 our only complaint was the long waiting time for our drinks and food. Drinks took about 15/20 mins from ordering to arriving and it was 45 mins wait for our mains. Couldn't fault everything else though and would return, could've been down to staffing issues on that particular day that we went. Would recommend the kedgeree fish cakes and the honeypot dessert.

Absolutely amazing!! We came to Clacton on a holiday and came to The Robin Hood for Tea one evening and it was so good we just had to book for lunch the next day! They were so friendly and welcoming. They even had a doggy station of help yourself water with bowls and dog treats for free and a pups menu with mini sausages, beef and chicken for the dogs at a reasonable price! We are absolutely gutted when we go home we will be 3 hours away. We wish it was our local pub! The food was so tasty and presentable.

Our group nine people visited the Robin Hood Pub today on the first of April for a pre booked time slot, We was shown to our seats fast followed by a drinks order from our waitress (Hannah) who was on her third day of work at the establishment. After a short time our decisions were made and starters and main meal orders were taken, Starters were delivered promptly but a fairly large gap of time passed between starters and main meal. The food was well presented and tasted great, only small gripe being the rice being super stodgy. And although we was told its meant to be like that. I feel you shouldn't need a knife and fork to cut your rice up. 🤔 Desserts soon followed with two menus being offered with disparities of price between items listed, I have uploaded pictures. This could possibly sow unnecessary confusion. Toilets were clean, decor was smart and tidy, dogs are welcomed and the have a beer garden So overall it was a nice visit and I would like to visit again Thank you Hannah
