This walk allows you to sample three superb examples of village pubs on the Dengie Peninsula (although do note that the pubs have varying opening times – check with them beforehand for details). All three of the pubs are in the current edition of CAMRA’s “Good Beer Guide” and all serve food.
This very pleasant (and relatively undemanding) walk meanders through typical Essex farmland and provides a great opportunity to visit three excellent examples of village pubs in the Thurstable Hundred of Essex. Do please note that the pubs have varying opening times - check with them beforehand for details. The "Chequers" in Goldhanger is in the current edition of CAMRA's "Good Beer Guide" and all of the pubs on the walk serve food.
This attractive linear walk takes you from the charming riverside town of Burnham-on-Crouch in a steady climb across the final outlier of the rolling farmland of central Essex, before reaching the ancient town of Southminster; you can then make the return journey to Burnham by train. The focal pubs on our walk are two longstanding entries in CAMRA’s “Good Beer Guide”, namely the “Queen’s Head” in Burnham and the “Station Arms” in Southminster. Both pubs serve an excellent range of well-kept beers and offer a warm welcome to all visitors.
