|When we went, the food was acceptable but nothing exceptional. Wouldn't call it value for money as I have had better pub food for less. However, they were very busy and the staff were less than helpful and friendly as a result. When they got our food order wrong, we waited an interminable length of time and were dealt with by staff who clearly felt we were in the wrong for pointing out their error. Then they got our food order wrong a second time and we left after the main course, vowing not to return. What a pity, as it is convenient and could be a really good place to visit with a bit more staff training and a better chef.|

|Standard Vintage Inn's chain pub situated on a picturesque roundabout on the Braintree bypass with sweeping views of the retail park, dual carriageway and Holiday Inn carpark.|
I have a personal prejudice against Fowlers Farm, as every time we go there (which is admittedly not often), I end having a row with the wife. Perhaps something in the atmosphere turns me into an obnoxious git.
I don't mind this particular chain as much as some of the others but I do find them rather bland, albeit dressed up in Olde English Charme (TM), so/so, 5/10.

|More of a restaurant than a pub strictly speaking but a very pleasant place to stop for a pint or two. Couple of aleís on including the local IPA & good selection of cheap(ish) lagers.|
Set in quite large grounds with plenty of space for the kids to run around in & nice to have a spot of lunch when the Sunís shining.
However a warning for the ladies Ė donít go if you hubbie or boyfriend has a roving eye as the barmaids / waitresses are all dolly birds, every time I go in there they donít fail to impress, the manager obviously has his priorities right Ė keep up the good work.
