This place is a joke, worst bar staff i have ever encountered. Plenty of decent places to eat and drink in Rayleigh. Don’t waste your hard earned money here.

I only go in on a weekday at lunchtimes, but the place is lovely. The staff are friendly and make you feel welcome. The building is old, and traditional which I think is great. Would recommend the pub to anyone.
