The Mistley Thorn - Pub in Essex

Last cache: 07:37:32, Sunday 26 October 2014

High Street, Mistley, Manningtree, CO11 1HE, Essex
England, United Kingdom

A laid-back wine bar mood for this country village pub - and great big fat oysters from West Mersea. Staff are eager, wines are delicious

In Constable land: a perfect coastal village where Georgian cottages gather around a river estuary with wide, light views of water, bobbing boats and green hills beyond. David and Sherri (who have a cookery school next door) run the place beautifully: staff are young, and good, there are plenty of locals tossed into the mix and some impeccably behaved children. The mood is laid-back city wine bar rather than roadside country pub. Colours are soft and easy, the tables are of various shapes, candles flicker, modern art rubs along well with the odd antique and food is taken seriously but without reverence. There's lots of robust local fish and seafood – squid with chilli, crab cakes with mayonnaise, gurnard with black olive tapenade, brilliant chips – and a pudding list that includes cheesecake from Californian Sherri's mum.
