Closed 25-27 December, 1 January, Sunday dinner and Monday
It's long been about food at this wind-blown spot by the sea wall of the Thames Estuary, which has hosted an inn since the 17C and farmland since the 12C. This might look like a classic pub but the cooking diverts from the norm, with top local and garden ingredients featuring in carefully prepared dishes which follow a 'less is more' philosophy. Bedrooms are in garden cabins.
