The Queens Head is our favourite chillout restaurant that ticks all the boxes for us. They have a wide range of lovely fish dishes served in a lovely environment overlooking the estuary and served by lovely attentive staff.

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

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.
