Just a short stroll from the River Crouch in Chelmsford, Essex, The Curlew is an unassuming place to find great beers, friendly conversation and a superb Sunday roast.

A traditional local, The Curlew also offers Fair Trade tea and coffee to enjoy either in the pub or to take away.

Like any good community pub, there’s plenty to keep regulars entertained - with darts and pool plus a quiz night every week (8pm on Thursdays).

The Curlew, found on the wonderfully named ‘Gandalf’s Ride’, is also home to a regular comedy club. Check Facebook for news of our latest events..
